I like to fish norris. However, I am not very good. It is a beautiful lake, but is very busy on weekends. if you ever want to go, let me know.

I fished it once. It was the clearest lake I have ever been on. You definately need to apply extreme clear water tactics. I remember being in 15 ft of water and watching bluegill flitter around in some rocks on the bottom. while I was watching them, a school of bass swam under the boat ranging from a pound to 5 or 6 pounds. There were at least 15 to 20 fish in the school. I have never seen anything like it except maybe in an aquarium.

i never have much luck in the clear water lakes. i have fished norris several times for the change of scenery but never did much good.

well I have fished mt hill growing up my whole life and only fished up here a few times then I moved up to campbell county when I got married had a boat then a boy so the boat had to go last year and one more child later I am back on the water. I am going to take my son saturday he is five now for crappie. I have been talking to a few guys at my work and they can catch fish all the time but the last time I really fished up here is was called the dead sea. die hard we will have to hook up and go sometime. thanks to all of you for at least touching on the topic.

I grew up on the lake and I am 43 now. Norris is well known for its "Smallies". It is a very hard lake to fish... better at night (not sure when the tourneys take place). I havent "bass" fished "as much" since I moved back to E TN in 2000. However, the older guys fishing Norris usually have an advantage to win. Good news is the summer can be hard fishing and it may just take one good fish to win! I guess it depends on what you want... the "experience" or the "win". If its to spend time with your buddies...tourney's for sure can be alot of fun. If its the "win" you are after, you may be better off on a different lake! IMO
