Nice public fishing in North Western Tennessee
Beautiful end to a beautiful day...

Fishing the many public watersheds in North Western Tennessee is a true privilege. Most have concrete boat ramps and are well managed by the state of TN. There are trophy bass, crappie, catfish, and even caught a few small stripers,... and every kids favorite.... millions of BLUEGILL!!!!!

Suns coming up....let's go get em! Fish on!

Most locals in North Western Tennessee are not aware of the great fishing that may exist just down the road from them. There are several state managed watersheds open to the public with no special permits required, just your standard fishing license.

I have seen trophy Bass and Crappie come out of these, as well as stringers full of Bluegill. These are stocked and managed by the state wildlife department.

They are large bodies of water, most having concrete boat ramps. Some are more remote than others, but to the best of my knowledge all of them are accessible by car and offer no problem to a boat trailer. I have seen large bass boats as well as small john boats on these watersheds.

You can find a map by searching the following on your computer "Reelfoot Lake Watersheds Printable Map". Or click here to see the map.

Here are a couple of pictures above of the watersheds and some bluegill action by a seasoned bluegill angler ;)

Thanks for sharing your enthusiasm for fishing in Tennessee. It looks and sounds like an awesome state to catch some real nice fish at.

As a matter of fact, the legendary Bill Dance was raised there in Tennessee, which is obviously where he began his bass fishing journey to stardom. So it must be a cool area for some exciting Tennessee fishing.

By the way, I've come across a West Tennessee Fishing Map Guidetennessee fishing map guide for those of you who might be interested in scoping out some nice lakes to fish at in the western half of Tennessee.
