Cherokee Lake Fishing

Cherokee Lake , also a TVA reservoir, is just east of Knoxville near Jefferson City and Morristown , and is a short drive north of Sevierville, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. With 30,300 surface acres of water and 463 miles of shoreline, Cherokee also provides super fishing opportunities. Great catches of Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass are plentiful from October through February, as well as through the months of March, April and May. Widely recognized as an excellent Striper fishery capable of producing large Stripers and Hybrids, Cherokee can produce especially exceptional catches of both during the months of October through March. For a real thrill, we specialize in the use of light tackle to make landing your trophy Striper that much more exhilarating. If having your line stretched by large, hard-fighting Stripers in beautiful East Tennessee is the kind of fishing excitement you’re looking for, then Cherokee Lake is the trip for you.

Our Tennessee fishing trips are conducted 362 days of the year on some of East Tennessee’s premier lakes and rivers. Unless deemed unsafe, we’re ready to fish when you are. East Tennessee guided fishing(angling) adventures are available to all ages. If you’re planning a Smoky Mountains family vacation or heading to the Tennessee Smokies just to fish, be sure to give us a call.

Lake Guided fishing trips are for Smallmouth Bass, Largemouth Bass, Crappie, Bluegill, Walleye, Sauger and Striper. Other species of fish do inhabit these bodies of water and may be caught as well.
