Bank fishing near Nashville

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any suggestions for bank fishing near Nashville (or ideally near Smyrna)? Maybe within 30-45 minute drive (without traffic)?

 

I am visiting some family and will have the day free tomorrow and Sunday so looking to catch a Tennessee bass!

I don't do much bank fishing nor do I fish in the Smyna area so take my advice for what it's worth which is not much.  The obvious answer to your question is Percy Priest Lake and the Stones River.  You've probably looked at a map and figured that out by now. There are many parks around the lake and I assume you could fish from the bank in them.  Priest is known for smallmouth.  There is also a small lake inside Long Hunter State Park that has a walking path around it and several peers.  I have walked on the path and seen people fishing from the peers.   Never noticed anyone catching anything.  They also have canoes, kayaks that you can rent at the lake.  Long Hunter park is on Percy Priest Lake so you can also fish it in the park.

 

Good luck and I hope you enjoy your stay.
