Fishing in the Tennessee River is allowed anywhere you can reach water.  And with Mousetail Landing State Park located on the Tennessee River, fishing is a popular activity.   Bass, bream, crappie, stripe and catfish can be caught along the banks.

Mousetail Landing has primitive campgrounds as well as sites with hookups for overnight guests. With the year of the Coronavirus of 2020, state parks were shut down during the state-wide stay-home phase, but now all state parks are open and have been very popular.  John Bowen, the park ranger at Mousetail, stated, "We have never been busier.  No matter the weather, we've been full every weekend.  It's easy to social distance, and still enjoy the great outdoors."  Come by Park Headquarters, find out what Mousetail has to offer, and select your method of camping, whether it be primitive camping or enjoying your RV or trailer.  Perhaps you'll even meet Ranger Bowen.  You are always welcome, no matter the season.

You can find more information about fishing in Tennessee by visiting the official website TWRA "Fishing in Tennessee" website.
