This 4,500-acre impoundment in the north-central part of the state is easily accessible via I-81 or I-26. Several marinas on the lake provide boat rentals, boating and fishing gear, dining, and entertainment. Boat ramps, marinas, docks and campgrounds are located all around the lake. Known for its excellent bass and striper fishing, Boone Lake has plenty of other angling opportunities as well. Catfish, crappie and sunfish are all abundant in this reservoir. Additionally, the TWRA stocks the lake with rainbow and brown trout. With over 160 miles of shoreline there's plenty of places to fish from the bank and all types of boats, including canoes, kayaks, bass boats, family boats and pontoon boats.
