What you need to know about fishing Norris Lake

Norris Lake is a 34,000-acre reservoir located in North East Tennessee. Completed in 1936, the Norris Dam impounds 73 miles up the Clinch River and 56 miles up the Powell River. With over 800 miles of shoreline, there are unlimited places to wet a line. Boat launches located around the lake make it easy to get on the water. The size and diversity of the lake allows for many different species to thrive and it’s not uncommon to pull in stripers exceeding 50 pounds. Bass, crappie, walleye, and muskie are often targeted species as well. Bass alone draw anglers to the lake throughout the year with many major tournament trails choosing to compete on its waters. In the spring and fall, various species will be moving up shallow where finding the right creek arm could allow you to fill the boat. During the summer and winter months, a productive strategy is trying to locate deep channel swings, points, and humps where they tend to school up in their quest to locate bait.  Max Depth: 210 ft, Average Depth: 75 ft

Reading Fishing Reports

When reading fishing reports the most useful information is likely to be the sum total of all reports over the last couple weeks, rather than the specifics of the most current fishing report. So finding that the fish have been caught shallow over the last few weeks is more important to know than the exact lure mentioned in the latest report.

Tennessee fishing reports for lakes, rivers and streams.

Often archived Tennessee fishing reports, from prior years, can help you identify seasonal patterns for a specific lake. Review the prior reports to find consistent information for summer months of June, July and August...the fall months of September and October...the winter months of November, December, January and February. Pay special attention to the spring (March, April and May) fishing reports from prior years as they should provide information to help you predict the approximate time for the spawn.

If you are considering a visit to Tennessee for a fishing trip and are unfamiliar with the area, some of the major cities in Tennessee include Clarksville, Nashville, Johnson City, Knoxville, Jackson, Memphis, Chattanooga, Maryville, Murfreesboro, Oak Ridge and others scattered across TN, some with fishing opportunities nearby. To enhance your fishing experience, you may want to hire a local guide. Click here for a list of Tennessee fishing guides.

Norris LakeFishing Report Card

Here's your fishing report for today the 22nd of October for Norris Lake. We take a number of different data points to make our fishing recommendation. Our recommendation is based on aspects about the weather conditions, moon phase & water conditions. Of course these should only be used as indicators combined with your own past fishing experience fishing on the banks of Norris Lake.

Clour Cover

It's common knowlege cloud cover is an angler's best friend. Clouds are not your friends today as less than 50% cover at 25% but if over conditions are favourable still head out to Norris Lake


Wind Direction

There’s an old saying on wind direction which has many variations but here's the most popular which I'm sure you've heard: “Wind from the West, fish bite the best. Wind from the East, fish bite the least. Wind from the North, do not go forth. Wind from the South blows bait in their mouth.” Its less so about the direction but the cause for the direction. We’ll cover this more in a blog post soon but for Norris Lake right now the wind is coming from a south westerly direction which means fishing is optimal.


Wind Speed

It's getting wild out there as current wind speeds are at 16 mph and can be difficult and even challenging. Not optimal if you plant to head out to Norris Lake but likely more difficult to get catch


Moon Phase

Moon phases have split fishing folk's opinion straight down the middle with the bigger impact on saltwater fishing but some freshwater anglers swear their catch improves when the moon is in a "New" or "Full" moon phase. These phases cause bigger tides making fish more active and susceptible to feeding meaning an opportunity for you to nab a catch. Norris Lake is currently under a "Waxing Cresent" phase which means its less optimal fishing time.

Norris Lake is your prime destination for fishing in Tennessee. Of the 14 different species of fish, its most notorious for incredible bass fishing! Grab your fishing poles and get ready for a day full of fishing at the lake. To guarantee you have a great time, we’ve put together a guide with everything you need to know about Norris Lake bass fishing:

Quiet Norris Lake Fishing in Anderson CountyBest Time to Fish

Fishing is great all year round, but if you are going bass fishing at Norris Lake, certain times are better than others if you want to get a great catch. The best time to catch fish in Norris Lake is during the spring months of April, May and June, but you’ll still have luck throughout all the other months too! During the summer especially, bass tend to be shallow in the mornings and evenings, but move deeper as the sun rises. They often feed heavily at night. Throughout the rest of the year, they tend to to keep the same pattern of swimming shallow to moderate depths in the mornings and evenings and moving deeper when the sun comes out. We recommend4 fishing in the early mornings to get the best catch.

Fishing Tips

To help guarantee you have a successful fishing trip, we’ve put together some tips for you to follow:

Largemouth Bass - For largemouth bass, try using topwater lures and crankbaits, flukes, spinners and bass assassins. Varieties of watermelon, crawfish and pumpkin colors. Many largemouth bass are often caught no deeper than 10 feet.

Smallmouth Bass - To catch smallmouth bass, you can use silver buddies lures, quarter-ounce doll flies, float and fly rips, doll flies with minnow tips and large shiners. If you want to fish at night, your best bet is to try spinners or jig and pigs off steep, rocky banks. Good smallmouth catches have come from 5 to 20 feet along steeper, broken rock shorelines, long sloping points, or near the bottom on rocky points.

Spotted Bass - To catch spotted bass, your best option is to use white spinners with plastic grubs on lead head jigs. Doll flies and crawfish crankbaits work well too. Like largemouth bass, they are often caught no deeper than 10 feet.

Striped Bass - Good striped bass catches have come from the surface on driftlines and 15 to 20 feet in mid-channel. To catch striped bass, try using trolled umbrella rigs, shiners, alewife or shad.

Night Fishing for Crappie and Walleye on Norris lake under lanterns.

Annual water elevation fluctuations can exceed 45-feet. These fluctuations, coupled with the detrimental effects of wave action, has severely eroded the lake's 800-miles of shoreline, washing away fish habitat, topsoil, and much of the associated nutrients needed to support aquatic life. Most of the reservoir's nutrient supply comes from the water inflow from the Clinch and Powell rivers. Norris is relatively infertile and does not, and never will, support as many fish as more fertile reservoirs like Boone, Douglas, and Cherokee.

During summer months, the lake is subject to vertical stratification. With rare exception, dissolved oxygen and water temperatures related to the stratification do not cause problems with respect to fish survival.

There is a precautionary advisory against the consumption of largemouth and smallmouth bass, striped bass, and sauger from the Clinch River portion of the reservoir due to mercury contamination. The reservoir has approximately 40 public boat ramps.

FISH HABITAT ENHANCEMENT:

The TWRA and volunteers from the public sector, have worked to improve fish habitat in Norris for many years. A wide variety of fish attractors have been used in an attempt to concentrate fish for anglers. These include brush piles which are used by many game fish, and stake beds which are primarily for concentrating crappie. These attractors work well, but must continually be refurbished.

Bald cypress and black willow trees have been planted in draw-down areas to create additional, long lasting habitat. The TWRA seeded areas with terrestrial plants including Reed Canary Grass, Austrian Winter Peas, Lespedeza spp., and Trifolium spp. (clover) during the early 1990s. Seeding had the potential of creating spawning habitat and cover for young fish, but the reservoir's inconsistent water levels rendered any shoreline seeding efforts impractical. Numerous spawning benches have been constructed to provide habitat for smallmouth bass reproduction.

The relatively recent appearance of Chara spp. (muskgrass, stonewart, ....) was not the result of any TWRA habitat enhancement efforts. Chara is an algae that attaches to the bottom using root-like structures called holdfasts. It grows quickly and can form thick mats along the bottom. Chara is an important food source for waterfowl and provides valuable protection for young fish and invertebrates.

BLACK BASS:

Norris is noted for its quality smallmouth. The best fishing is from November to April. Anglers are allowed to harvest one, 20-inch or larger smallmouth per day from June 1 through October 15. Five, 18-inch or larger smallmouth are allowed from October 16 through May 31. The harvest of largemouth and smallmouth bass will be limited to five per day in combination. The minimum size limit for largemouth is 14-inches.

Spotted (Kentucky) bass make up a good percentage of the bass population in Norris. Unlike largemouth and smallmouth bass, this species rarely reaches quality size in any east Tennessee reservoir. They also utilize the same habitat and compete with the more quality-sized smallmouth bass. As a result, anglers are encouraged to keep these fish for the table. There is no size or creel limit for this species.

STRIPED BASS:

Striped bass stocking: 2013 - 104,228; 2012 - 106,586; 2011 - 119,949; 2010 - 103,201; 2009 - 106,676; 2008 - 108,103
Norris yielded a 49.5-pound state record striped bass in April, 1978. A recent water quality related fish kill in 2003 severely reduced the number of large stripers in the reservoir. It will take several years for the fishery to recover and begin producing good numbers of the 30 to 40-pound fish that were common in the past.

Stocking was suspended between 1996 and 1998 pending the outcome of a food habit/competition study. That study and previous food-habit studies showed a preference for shad; and few non-shad species have ever been found in striper stomachs. The study concluded that few game fish are consumed by stripers, but that there is the potential for limited forage production during some years. As a result, stocking rates were reduced three per acre.

Anglers are allowed one striped bass over 36-inches from November through March and two fish over 15-inches from April through October.

CRAPPIE:

Crappie stocking: 2012 - 102,039; 2011 - 128,226; 2010 - 132,453; 2009 - 110,806; 2008 - 103,559; 2007 - 109,572
Since natural reproduction of crappie has been below average during the past several years and densities are less than desirable, an aggressive stocking program using blacknose black crappie was begun in 1999. The decline in lake fertility and loss of habitat structure are two important aspects of reservoir aging adversely affecting this game fish.

Much of the habitat work undertaken on Norris has been to improve the crappie population and increase angler success rates. There is a daily creel limit of 10 crappie with a minimum size limit of 10-inches.

WALLEYE:

Walleye stocking: 2013 - 240,267; 2012 - 194,291; 2011 - 284,146; 2010 - 194,584; 2009 - 170,066; 2008 - 187,589
The greatest fishing pressure for this species is in the early spring during the annual spawning runs and at night during the alewife spawn. Many are also caught throughout the reservoir during all seasons by anglers willing to employ various strategies.

An aggressive campaign was begun in 1999 to offset the negative impacts of a failure in natural reproduction. These stockings have proven to be extremely successful.

SUNFISH:

Sunfish are an important component of Norris Lake's fishery. There has been a dramatic increase in the number and quality of the much sought after redear sunfish (“shellcracker”) in recent years. Shellcrackers grow large and make for fine table fare.

FISHING TIPS:

Spotted bass - Small white spinners, plastic grubs on leadhead jigs, doll flies, and crawfish crankbaits are excellent.

Largemouth bass - Crankbaits, top water lures, Flukes, Bass Assassins, spinners, and Carolina-rigged lizards all work during April, May, and early June.

Smallmouth bass - Good lures for Norris smallmouth are Silver Buddies, 1/4 oz (or smaller) doll flies, doll flies tipped with minnows, float-and-fly rigs, and large shiners. On windy days in late winter, cast small crankbaits to wind-swept, rocky banks. Early spring smallmouth spawn on gravel points which reach out into the main channels. Spinners or pig’n jigs fished at night on steep, boulder-strewn banks catch good smallmouth year-‘round.

Crappie - Quality angling is best in the back of major embayments such as Big Sycamore Creek, Davis Creek and Big Creek. Upper river sections above Point 15 (Powell R.) and Point 31 (Clinch R.) are also good. Fish brush piles or downed trees in the winter, early spring or late fall months. Small minnows, plastic grubs, flies tipped with minnows, and small crankbaits work best.

Walleye - During river runs, troll or jig with minnow-tipped doll flies, Sparkle Tails, AC Shiners, Rapalas, or Shad Raps. In late spring, night anglers cast crankbaits into flooded weeds. Trolling with Jet Lures tipped with night crawlers, spinner-and-night crawler rigs, or with deep running Long-Billed Rebels and Model 911 RedFins is popular by the end of May on the lower end. Night fishing with jigging spoons, alewife or shad accounts for good catches in the summer.

Water Conditions

The water elevation on June 4th was 1012.56-feet, which is 2.9-inches higher than last Wednesday’s elevation. The water level is predicted to rise 1.4-inches through Friday, June 6th. The inflow is 795 cfs.

The lake is clear, with visibilities of 15- to 20-feet on the lower end. The head of some creeks may have visibilities of less than 5-feet. Surface temperature readings show 70 to 75 degrees over most of the reservoir. Shallow, protected coves and creeks are as high as 80 degrees.

Moon phase: Moon phase: Waxing crescent. The full moon will be June 13.

 

Summary

A lack of rainfall is keeping the lake elevation lower than usual for this time of year. Because of the lower water elevation, flooded shoreline vegetation which provides shade and cover is less. Bass, walleye, and crappie anglers are doing best at night, or just after the break of day. But some walleye are coming in via trolling at 15 to 20-feet during the day, with the depth being greater as the day progresses and the sun is higher in the sky. Bluegill are hitting better. Shellcracker catches remain good near brush in the coves. Crappie are moving back into deeper water brush after daybreak. Black bass catches are slow during the daytime. While the transitional months of spring and fall see rapid changes in fish patterns, the relatively static summer months do not see much change from week to week. With the clear water conditions, two to four-pound-test, low-visibility line, and casts made far from the boat will help your luck during the day.

 

Bluegill/Redear

Bluegill: Good. Shellcracker: Good. Shellcracker catches slowed a bit, but some were still being caught just off the bottom in water about 10-feet deep. The lower half of the reservoir is best for shellcracker, but they can be caught in most of the lake. They’re hitting wax worms, nightcrawlers, and small tuffy minnows. Bluegill are being caught in deeper, shaded water, as deep as 20-feet, on crickets tightlined or cast to the shoreline and allowed to drop to depth. Shallow brush is producing smaller bluegill. Popping bugs are always good for bluegill on the shaded, steep, rocky shorelines before 10 a.m.. Once the sun is up, the larger ones drop into deeper water and into available cover and shade.

 

Crappie

Fair, in brushy coves in the creeks and coves. 10- to 20-feet deep. Near flooded brush in the back of larger creek hollows and in brushy pockets on the upper half of the reservoir. Main channel fishing above Points 30 and 15 is improving in deep brush. Clear water has limited the best catches to nighttime, under lights, and the early morning hours. Plastic grubs in blue ice, green, pearl, or yellow, as well as tuffy minnows. Popeye hair jigs, 1-inch tube jigs, or grubs tipped with minnows along the bottom, or fish trout magnets, popeye flies, and small tube jigs tight to brush early in the morning. Night fishermen are catching them on tuffy minnows beneath lights on main channel, deep brush from Point 29 and above.

Good standard lures: Tuffy minnows, small doll flies, mini tube jigs (red/white, blue/white) and 1/32 ounce hair or feather jigs tipped with minnows, Trout Magnets, or Slider grubs in a variety of colors. Historically good locations to try: Powell River arm channel from Point 15 vicinity to Earl’s Hollow. Davis Creek from its headwaters to a half-mile below Powell Valley Marina. Doaks Creek. Big Creek from Indian River Marina to Campbell County Park. Cove Creek above Twin Cove Marina. Mill Creek, Big Ridge Hollow, Lost Creek above its junction with White Creek. Poor Land Creek. Bear Creek. Flint Creek. Sycamore Creek. The Clinch channel above Point 31. Locations between the Dam and Point 9, and the Dam and Point 2 typically produce no crappie.

 

Largemouth & Spotted Bass

Good from dusk ‘til dawn. Slow during the day. Surface to 20-feet; deeper or tighter to structure during the day. Same pattern, but better action from sunrise to 9 a.m. These fish have been caught within inches of the shoreline where there is wood structure and on small points along rocky shorelines. Some are in the back of coves, in the middle of floating brush, limbs, and other woody structure. Slow retrieves with soft plastic (Flukes, Slider worms, Brush Hogs, or shaky head jigs/slider worms) have taken some nice largemouth at 15- to 20-feet. A variety of watermelon or pumpkin shades have worked well. Slow-rolled spinner action was good on main channel banks at night. Watermelon and pumpkin colored Zoom worms and 4-inch slider or whacky worms are working pretty good.

 

Smallmouth Bass

Moderate. Some of these fish are still hitting shallow, at dusk and during the night. Good smallmouth catches have come from 5- to 20-feet along steeper, broken rock shorelines, on long sloping points, or near the bottom on rocky points at up to 20- feet deep. Early morning catches have come from topwater plugs or small jerkbaits thrown to breaking fish, but the surface breaks are widely scattered across the lower end of the reservoir. Pig’n jigs, Brush Hogs, small plastic worms and lizards have all worked well at dusk. Spinners, slow-rolled down moderately sloped banks, have taken good smallmouth at dusk and after dark, down to 20-feet. Small Tennessee rigs, soft swim baits, small plastic Slider worms, plastic lizards, Brush Hogs, or rubber skirted jigs are working. For soft plastic baits and spinner skirts, any shade of watermelon/pumpkin continues to produce fish. Many smallmouth are being caught by walleye anglers on shad or alewife, at night under the lights. A slow, steady retrieve worked well on the sunny days, with the lure worked along the bottom. Very light, low-vis line (2 to 4 pound) has helped produce the majority of smallmouth. Medium to deep running crankbaits in blood red and crawfish patterns, close to the rocky, windy shorelines, but crankbaits are not producing as well as small jigs.

*REGULATION FOR SMALLMOUTH BASS: June 1 st – October 15th , one per day, 20 ‐ inch minimum length limit. October 16th – May 31st , five per day (in combination with largemouth), 18 ‐ inch minimum length limit

 

Striped Bass

Fair in early morning. Surface on driftlines, or 15 to 20-feet in mid-channel. Cove Creek action remains good on the right mornings and at night. Lost Creek and the channel from Point 19 to Stardust produced some fish, as did Crooked Creek. The Powell side has had catches from Point 10 to Point 12, and from Point 15 to Point 16. Trolled umbrella rigs, shiners, alewife, or shad are taking most of these fish. Shad and large shiners are working when driftline fished or on planer boards, 5 to 20- feet deep. Umbrella rigs with trailers in pearl or chartreuse, or live bait (gizzard shad, shiners, or alewife) tightlined, or trolled with downriggers, to the depth of the forage fish schools in mid-channel especially across the points and humps. Regardless of the location on the reservoir, if there are flocks of feeding gulls, striped bass are likely in the area, feeding on the same forage.

There is a new, statewide hook regulation in effect. Read it here: http://www.eregulations.com/tennessee/fishing/statewide ‐ limits ‐ regulations/ *REGULATION REMINDER FOR STRIPED BASS: From April 1st to October 31st, the regulation allows 2 per day, 15-inch minimum length limit. On November 1 - March 31 it will return to the 1 per day, 36-inch minimum length limit.

 

Walleye

Moderate. Surface to 15-20 feet, near the shoreline where there is broken rock or red clay. Best at night after 10:30 p.m., but trolling plugs has produced some in the daytime. Lower end nighttime catches saw the fish move from the shoreline brush to the bottom at 15 to 20-feet. Night catches have come on topwater plugs, Flukes, Shad Raps, and snagged alewife casted toward the shoreline when fishing under lights. Cast Long Billed Rebels, Rapalas, Thundersticks, Model-A’s, or similar lures, or shad/alewife to the rock and red clay shorelines, and where brush may be flooded. Daytime trolling is picking up fish at 20 to 25 feet. phs #1,421
