Tellico Lake provides fishing for bass and catfish. Fishing is good from the bank and the large fishing pier.


Fort Loudoun is surrounded by Tellico Lake and is a good place for shorebirds, Osprey, and Bald Eagles. A varied landscape of forest and fields provide a diverse habitat for migratory birds. The fields are being converted to native grasses and provide an excellent habitat for “Bob White” Quail and other birds of open land.
