Norris Lake Fishing

Among some of the best things to do on Norris Lake, fishing ranks one of the best. Norris Lake is quickly becoming the best spot for local and travelling fisherman to catch Striper, Walleye, Crappie, Catfish, Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass and much more. Sit back and relax as you catch some of the best fish around.

Fishing on Norris Lake follows the seasonal patterns. During the winter months, fish can be located at the headwaters (source) of the reservoir. Once spring starts to come, the fish begin spawning runs, meaning the fish are reproducing. The reservoir makes for great fishing during the spring months from March to June.

It’s not too late in the summer months to catch the best fish. Summer night fishing is a popular method to catch White and Black Bass during the later summer months. Using a bright light and live bait has been proven to be very successful in catching this type of fish.

Buy bait at your local marinas!
