To anyone who hasn't seen it already, Tennessee Sportsman Magazine has some good archives on their website. There is plenty of good reading on there. Click here: http://www.tennesseesportsmanmag.com/fishing/catfish-fishing//index.html According to what I've read, we're all pretty blessed. The tailwaters of Old Hickory Dam rate up there for good catfishing, even in downtown Nashville. Woods Reservoir is probably rated the best spot in Middle Tennnesse for catfishing. Percy Priest ranks up there, too. I was surprised to see Watts Bar Lake is rated highly. Particularly the tailwaters of Ft. Loudoun Dam on the TN River, which is technically Watts Bar. I am really lucky because I can get there in not too much longer than 1/2 hour. It says the bends in the river near the I-40 bridge downstream from the dam is excellent for giants. It also rated the tailwaters of Watts Bar Dam highly, which is technically Chicamaugua Lake. One note is bank fishing is only allowed on the lock side of this dam. And the tailwaters of Douglas Dam is also very good. Anyone visiting the Smoky Mountians can drive there in less than an hour.
