Fishing on Melton Hill Lake

Melton Hill Lake is the best place to go fishing in Anderson County TN if you’re hoping to catch a big fish and have an even bigger adventure! Muskie fishing on Melton Hill Lake is becoming more popular because muskie are one of Tennessee’s largest and fastest growing fish. The merging of the Clinch River and Melton Hill Lake make it the perfect breeding ground for muskie all year long.

If you plan on muskie fishing, know that traditional muskie tackle includes a heavy 7 to 8 foot baitcasting rod with a substantial level-wind reel. Your best bet for catching muskie is fishing during the day. Many congregate near or downstream of Bull Run Steam Plant’s warm-water discharge during the winter and early spring. Keep in mind that since the muskie population is limited, you are encouraged to catch and release.
