Created from the confluence of the Caney Fork River, Collins River and the Rocky River, this 1,800-acre lake in central Tennessee, supports a host of fresh-water fish species. Bass and crappie are the featured species, but the lake also contains quality populations of catfish, walleye, sunfish, muskie and others. Fishing from a boat enhances the opportunity for success, but there are areas for fishing from shore. Kayaks and canoes are an option for anglers hoping to get some exercise while fishing. The lake is lined with boat docks and a fair amount of trees and brush also provide cover for bass and crappie.
