Fishing at Center Hill Lake

Fish on the cleanest lake in Tennessee. Take your boat out or find your place along the shoreline. With Tennesee’s mild temps, fishing is open almost year round. 

Whether you are on the lake or on the Caney Fork River, you will have the best view in Tennessee. From a boat, canoe or kayak, there are several options for navigating the waters.

If you plan on fishing at Center Hill Lake, you will need a valid Tennessee fishing license. Exceptions: No one under 13 needs a license, nor does anyone born before March 1, 1926.

Fishing licenses are available for purchase online from the Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency. 

And by the way, fish fries are the best if you didn’t know.
