Avatar of danibutler

Great spot on TN river, just behind campus. came up on a recommend from a friend. After about an hour and a few bites but nothing to show for it. Landed nice green sunfish. About 20 minute later pole folds in half 8lb catfish. And while removing his hook. Landed a little striped. Great clean area off bike trail. Can walk up a bit and fish third creek too. I bottom fish mainly. Throw lures in the creek. But love this spot.

Norris lake is one of the cleanest lakes in East Tennessee. Especially on the clinch River side. They don’t have a large business dumping bad things into it. Most debris is drift wood. Fly fishing is great below Norris dam / Clinch River. Great parks with full camping hookups. Free boat ramps.
