Fishing

There are 44,000 acres of surface water comprised of 10 lakes that make up the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway. Within these lakes there are 50+ old ponds, old river runs, tributary streams, oxbows, cut-offs, pool sections and channels that provide a variety of habitat for many species of fish, including warm and cold water. Important predatory game fish are the largemouth bass, spotted bass, hybrid striped bass, walleye, sauger, and crappie.

Prey species include shad, minnows, silversides, sunfish, and darters. In addition, channel, blue, and flathead catfish, chain pickerel, bowfin, buffalo, and redhorse can be found in these abundant waters.

Fisheries management on the Tennessee-Tombigbee places a strong emphasis on providing a quality fishery, improving aquatic resources, and protecting the environment. Work is accomplished with the assistance from project personnel cooperating with other natural resource management agencies. The Fishing Areas listed below are generally located along spillway structures. In addition to these locations, most recreational areas provide fishing docks and areas for bank fishing.
