Fontana Lake Fishing


category : Fishing
The 29-mile long, 11,700-acre Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) lake has more than 240 miles of shoreline. And its deep, cold waters provide the ideal habitat for a variety of fish. In fact, record size muskie and walleye have been pulled from its depths. And many believe it's one of the best smallmouth bass fishing lakes in the country, including the Fisherman's Bass Tournament Circuit, which held its annual Hall of Fame Classic at Fontana in Fall 2001.
