Fishing Information

Norris Lake has over 56 species of fish. The clear deep waters of Norris Lake create a perfect habitat for stripers (rockfish), walleye, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, bluegill, shellcrackers, catfish and  crappie. Famous for its trophy-size stripers, walleye and catches of black crappie, Norris has become a favorite destination for anglers across the country. Ask for fishing tips at the dock before your trip.  You are welcome to bring your own boat ($10 launch fee–pay box is located at the ramp) or rent one of ours.
