About Watts Bar Lake

Watts Bar Lake is situated in the heart of the Tennessee River Valley midway between Knoxville and Chattanooga. Watts Bar is one of the South's largest lakes at 39,000+ acres, it extends just over 72 miles between Watts Bar Dam and Fort Loudon Dam with the maximum depth being approximately 70 feet near the dams. The lake was created in 1942 and is regulated by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA).

 

The principal tributaries are the Tennessee River and Clinch River with the Emory River also flowing directly into the Clinch River. It is surrounded by Loudon, Roane, Rhea, and Meigs Counties. All along the banks of Watts bar one can find cabin and house boat rentals as well as other lake lodging.

 

Many of the Watts Bar Lake marinas offer fishing boat, pontoon boat, jet ski and houseboat rentals and for those who just can't get enough of the water, several new high-end, residential developments allow residents to live right on its edge.

 

Fishermen especially enjoy Watts Bar Lake and the abundance of world class fishing that includes many species of fish such as black bass (both small and large mouth), white bass, spotted bass, white and black-nose crappie, striper, rock fish, sunfish, catfish, and even sauger. The lake even holds the world-record skipjack herring, weighing in at four pounds and was caught in 2004.

 

With Knoxville to the east, Chattanooga to the west, and relaxed lake living in between, Watts Bar Lake has it all!

and playing on these lakes! I have a vested interest in this area and I LOVE these lakes!!

 

I live on Fort Loudon Lake and have grown up boating, skiing, swimming, fishing and camping on Tellico, Fort Loudon, Watts Bar, and Melton Hill Lakes. This area is commonly referred to as "The Lake Capital of the South" and we offer a wide array of both on lake recreational activities as well as off lake recreational activities. We are also known as one of the Gateways to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park which is one of the most visited parks in this great nation!

 

Fort Loudon Lake offers many waterfront neighborhoods, marinas, restaurants and special events which draw not only locals but many visitors each season to the area. Tellico Lake offers several upscale communities like Tellico Village and Rarity Bay which attract an array of retirees from all over the nation due to our midsouth location, low tax, superior medical facilities and expansive offering of activities for retirees. Watts Bar Lake is the Hidden Gem of this area but it is quickly being discovered by many with new waterfront communities springing up each year. Melton Hill Lake is well known for several excellent camping and fishing areas along its shoreline. Indoor and outdoor dining, weekend bands, trivia, karaoke, poker runs, and more throughout the year are offered on one or more of these lakes.

 

While all of these lakes offer swimming, boating, fishing, fishing tournaments, water skiing, camping, golfing, and beautiful wildlife, they each possess their own uniqueness!
