Just about every time I pass Percy Priest Dam on I40 I can see people fishing below it. Does anyone here fish there? If so, what all is caught around there? I have always wanted to try it.

They stocked it with trout last friday, so right now im sure thats what the majority of people are fishing for. I know they catch a pretty wide variety of fish below there when the waters up.

Right now the only thing there catching there near the dam is trout, but in a couple of weeks when it gets warmer the white bass and stripers will be in there in stacks while generating.
Best time to fish there is in the summer when the gates are open, you can alot of stripers in a couple of feet of water.
Hope this help!!!
