Fishing at Center Hill Lake

Fish on the cleanest lake in Tennessee. Take your boat out or find your place along the shoreline. Tournaments are often held at the lake during summer months and professional fishing guides are also available for hire.


If you plan on fishing at Center Hill Lake or if you assist someone else to do so, you must have a valid Tennessee fishing license. There are some 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. You can also purcahse a license at various sports and outdoor retailers located throughout the state.

Fishing Information Line: (931) 858-4366.
