Small Mouth & Large Mouth Bass, Redeye, Bluegill and Catfish are taken from the surrounding waters

We've seen some fairly good size fish taken from the Little River surrounding River Island. Small Mouth and Large Mouth Bass, Redeye, Bluegill and Catfish to name a few. If you want to catch your own supper... have at it!


Fishing License and Permits
There is always a chance of you getting caught by bigger fishermen... these are the folks from the Tennessee Wildlife Resource Commission (TWRA), so get a permit or take your chances, the choice is yours to make. Rules and Regulations

Fish till your heart is content at the River Island. Bring your gear if you plan to stay with us a day or more. With a little patience you may not leave disappointed.
