I would like to know who is responsible for updating the fishing reports. It would be a great service for people living close to Normandy Lake to have updated reports. Most of the reports are very old and some not even dated. Can the TWRA or fishing conservationist update this for us?

I was on normandy first thing saturday morning april 21st windy and no sunshine raining off and on all day. Every large mouth i caught i pulled them off with a Carolina Rig. Seems like there still on bed cause i was pulling in the big ones and they all still had bloody tails. 6\" watermelon seed lizard was doing the trick along with watermelon speed craws. Gravel Banks was great in about 4 to 6 feet of water. Good Luck Riley Creek and Devil\'s Backbone is were ya need to be.

Wednesday Jan25 Of course I called some friends after the day I had yesterday on Normandy and sure enough a trip came out of it. I went to Normandy today with Brandon and Matt from Lebanon TN. We started out cranking a shad rap and managed to catch a few fish. The TVA had pulled the water and it was down about 10" from the previous day making the fish want to suspend. We left Riley Creek where we had started and I had caught the fish yesterday and headed to Carroll creek. In Carroll we managed to catch a nice mess of fish including a yellow perch, didn't know that they were even in Normandy more on that later. All in all we caught our fish on small white tube jigs and shad raps. We managed to catch 15 kentuckies, 1 smallmouth, 7 largemouth and 4 big crappie and the yellow perch. Come to find out the perch weighed in at 1.8lbs and was just over 14" and qualified for the TARP, Tennessee Anglers Recognition Program. We are taking the steps with Bass Pro to try and get the fish into their tank here at the Nashville Bass Pro. Overall a great day and pretty unique experience. Thanks for the fun day guys. Contact Mark at or call at 615-829-3902. There is a great bite going on right now at Normandy come and enjoy it.

Friday Dec 30 I have another report today for Normandy Lake. The bite here today was slow to start the main lake here was also extremely rough, however the secondary points in the creeks were on fire. The fish were eating Lucky Craft 78SP pointers fished on 10lb Vicious Fluorocarbon line, jerked slowly off the tips of the points. The bites came in flurries as the fish seemed to be bunched up. Most of the strikes came on the windblown sides of the points. Water temps here ranged from 48-49 on the main lake to 50-52 in the creeks. Contact Mark at to book your trip for 2012!!! Let's go fishing soon.

"Anyone out there know if the ""floating"" dock @ Barton Spring ramp is usable or was it locked up as it usually is for the winter? I have not been there yet this year. I do not understand why they lock it up as it is capable of being used even @ winter pool??!!!"

Normandy Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Crappie at Normandy Lake have been biting on anything from a big bass frog to a Carolina rig in about 70 to 75 feet. They are also biting on big pink spinnerbaits for bass.
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Summer Fishing Tip provided by Guide Chatt Martin: Same requirements as spring, but deeper. For beginners, rivers and creeks are the best because "deep" is relative. In a creek, a crappie's summer spot might only be 5 feet from their springtime spot, because there isn't as much deep water to begin with, so bank bound anglers can usually catch crappies in basically the same places they caught them in the spring. In lakes, summer usually means having a fishfinder, or sonar unit, and looking for those "sticking up things" in deeper water. However, there are a couple ways to find those spots even if you don't have a fishfinder. One is a Kentucky rig, which is a live bait rig with a very heavy weight on the bottom that will allow you to feel it when you drag it through a brushpile. The other is, plant your own brushpiles so you'll know where they are. Still, in the summer, a beginners best bet is a shallow creek or river with good bank access.

Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
This is the water temperature of choice for walleye. They are feeding well and moving in patterns that should be fairly easy to pick up and capitalize on today. Baitfish are not at the peak of activity but they will be in good supply in the deeper water. The lake is really turning on this time of year and the fish should be biting well.
Normandy Lake Catfish Rating:
Normandy Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- -Catfish Usually like live bait like Bluegill etc.
-If you dont have live bait go to a local fishing store. If you cant find one go to walmart or kmart.
-Dont forget Catfish are nocturnal fish so they come out more often a night.

Normandy Lake Spotted Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Spotted bass have been very active this winter. I have been catching large numbers of fish and several nice size fish between 2-3 pounds. Try using a natural colored crank bait 8-12 feet deep with a slow retrieve for good results.
Spotted Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
In the 65 degrees range, spotted bass are generally their most active at this water temperature. Baitfish are much more active in this water temperature and the spotted bass will be feeding aggressively throughout the day.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

New Moon fishing can be at its best. The gravitational pull on the earth is at its peak when the moon and sun are rising and setting at the same time of day. This combination can generate extraordinary fishing opportunities especially if combined with perfect weather variances. The new moon may have the fish extremely aggressive and actively hunting for food. Try fishing a little faster today and with several different baits and techniques. When fish are more aggressive, its always fun to fish a little more aggressive. Watch the peak fishing times and make sure you are on the water during that part of the day to take full advantage of today?s solar/lunar peaks. Have a great day!
