    Calderwood Boating Fishing

    We got a later start than I wanted. It is a beautiful lake, I caught a good rainbow within 30 mins of getting there, then it went quiet. Kids these days don't have much of an attention span, so my son got a little bored. We did see a group of otters which was cool. I believe I'll go again, maybe when it cools off a little. I need to explore more of the lake as well.

    Did you just walk out to the cat walk from the overlook? We took the boat out. Was nice. Only managed one fish, but was beautiful. Just thinking that if we don't want to take the boat what are our options?

    Awesome, thank you for all the info. We will see how we do this weekend. I'll be sure to report back.

    How close to the dam can you get? I just hope to catch some fish with my son.

    Thank you for the info. Any tips for live bait fishing Calderwood? You seem very knowledgeable about the area from your post I've read.

    Awesome, thanks for all your help. Hopefully we can get on some trout. I am thinking of bringing night crawlers and minnows. Maybe powerbait as well.

    On last question, I assume the lake is pretty deep out in the middle? Any obstacles to watch out for? I don't imagine any sand bars or the like in the middle of this lake because it used to be a valley.

    Yes I'm hoping it won't be so bad. I think the reward of the the lake will be worth it.

    Thank you for the info. I figure the hardest part will be pulling the boat down the dragon. I'm excited I think we will try to go this weekend after the rain is gone. I'm sure they'll be water moving there.

    I agree on the clinch below Norris Dam. In college my buddies and I would limit out even with the special regulations there. My son isn't old enough to wade those waters when they're not generating. I do remember my old honey holes out there. It tends to be pretty crowded out there on weekends too.

    That's exactly why I want to fish these mountain lakes. Surely we can come up with some rainbows and I doubt it's crowded.

    Calderwood Boating Fishing

    Hello, I am new to the site. I live in Alcoa and I am thinking of going to some of the little TN river reservoirs to try my luck at trout fishing with my son. I am thinking I would like to try Calderwood lake first. I would like to fish live bait for the most part. I might through a rooster tail or some other lures. I was thinking of taking out my 19 ft fiberglass fish and ski..... Not sure how well it will work?? Is the ramp good enough to launch off of? I know you have to drive the dragon to get to the ramp. Any advice or tips would be great, would just like to get my son on some fish and I know it will have to be cooler fishing on these Mountain lakes rather than the ones closer to home for now. Would like to make a pattern for us of spring/fall fishing for bass, crappie, etc on the Ft Loudoun and do some summer fishing in the mountains when it gets hot.

    Hello, My name is Jordan. I live in east TN with my wife and two boys. I am originally from middle TN and now that I have a little more time on my hands, I would like to learn about all the fishing in East TN waters. I currently have a 19ft fish and ski boat. Hope to make good use of it this fall. Hope to be of some help and learn a lot from this site.
