    Fishermen will find outstanding opportunities within Fall Creek Falls State Park. Fall Creek Lake is home to the state record catches of two species, channel catfish and bream, and the streams in the park also are good for fishing. Canoes, pedal boats and fishing boats with electric motors may be rented at the boat dock. Privately-owned boats are not allowed, but anglers may bring their own electric motors for the rental boats.

    A special lake-fishing permit is required along with the applicable Tennessee license.
