Sumner County Sportsmans' Club?

Recommended Posts

I've lived in Portland TN for four years now and just found out about 2 or 3 months ago that we have a lake. I went to check it out and it's on both sides of the road. On the right hand side is a sign that says "Private Sumner county Sportsmans CLub Members only". It looked like was set up  pretty nice. A few small jon boats and the like, and a couple of docks. I saw no phone numbers or websites. I looked them up on line and all I could find was that they exist. I was wondering if any here knows about "them" or is one of "them". These guys are more secretive than the Masons. I just want a nice place to fish close to home, other than catfish pay lakes.  It's on Portland Lake Rd in Portland TN if you want to google map it. Thanks in advance for any help.

I am a member of a lake much like that here in Alabama.  If that lake is anything like ours there is a full time caretaker and he should be able to give you the information that you might need for membership.  I know that we have a waiting list somewhere in the 7 year range for ours.  I would encourage you to look carefully to see if there is a full time resident caretaker or just try to flag someone down who is fishing the lake and ask them.

Yeah, there are a couple houses. One might just be a storage building. There were a couple guys fishing the other day but the lake is about 100 yards from the road and it's fenced off. I guess I'll just keep checking, hopefully I won;t have to wait that long.  Thanks for the help.
