Spring is a great time to fish for bass, crappie, White Bass, and Hybrid Striped Bass on J. Percy Priest Lake (14,000 acre reservoir). Fishing for catfish and bream is productive year round. The park offers two boat launch ramps to J. Percy Priest Lake which can accommodate fishing boats. Couchville Lake (110 acre) is located within the park and provides descent Largemouth Bass fishing. Gas motors, and personal watercraft, with exception of canoes and kayaks, are not permitted on Couchville Lake.
