Fishing on Norris Lake
While Norris Lake is well know for large fish, some of the best catches are the memories of our youth fishing with family. Here are some tips and suggestions for catching fish in Norris Lake as well as the most important catch of all, the memories of a lifetime.
Memories of Family Fishing on Norris Lake
Fishing on Norris Lake may be very popular with the professional anglers, but generations of local residents have lasting memories of fishing the lake with their families. Growing up on the shores of Norris Lake I spent many fun times fishing with my father, and most weekends found us on the lake. My best memories from my childhood were on the water “wetting a line” with dad that created a bond that has lasted a lifetime. And today, this passion for fishing on Norris Lake is being passed along to my son. My dad and my son and husband love to fish for Largemouth bass from the Ranger boat that is loaded with fishing rods, reels and tackle boxes.
My kid loves to dig for his own worms and help bait a hook. Fishing creates a lasting memory in young children and creates a bond that will last a lifetime. As you enjoy your stay in one of our Norris Lake cabin rentals, please ask us about the best spots to catch Bluegill. We can send you to a perfect spot, but make sure you bring some bread or crackers for the ducks that will swim by. The ducks love being fed goodies, and kids love feeding them too.
If you’re not fishing from a boat on Norris Lake, you might discover that the BEST fishing is done sitting in a lawn chair along the shoreline, or on a boat dock in a quite cove with your toes in the water. It’s these special times when what you catch has little to do with catching wonderful memories. Catching a few fish is an added bonus. It’s these summer days on Norris Lake that end with a beautiful summer evenings and a family fish fry with a side dish of hush puppies. And be confident that homemade coleslaw goes very well with the day’s fresh catch. I will always cherish those moments as a child, and can only hope my child looks back on his childhood the way I still do.
