COVID-19 UPDATES: Keeping Visitors Healthy

Paris Landing State Park

Fishing

2020 COVID-19 Update

Most state park boat rental operations will open this summer. Hours and operating procedures will vary by park. Each park will implement additional safety and sanitation protocols to protect park staff and visitors and encourage social distancing. All boaters are encouraged to bring their own life jacket or approved personal floatation device (PFD).


The creek mouths and embayments are popular for spring crappie fishing from late March through May. Bluegill and Redear Sunfish are also commonly harvested from the lake. Bass fishing is best in the spring and fall. Catfish are commonly caught in summer and fall. 

Paris Landing State Park has a full-service marina with covered and uncovered slips, four lane ramp and overnight parking lot with charging outlets. Local guides and tournaments are plentiful.
