Fishing in Metro Parks

Fishing is permitted on Metro Park property as long as individuals have the required state fishing license. Tennessee has one of the most diverse inventories of fish in North America, with over 315 different species of fish. Local anglers can visit numerous locations throughout the Metro Parks system to fish. In Percy Warner Park people fish at Willow Pond located on Hwy 100. In Edwin Warner Park, just off of Vaughn Rd., there are several fishing holes located along the Little Harpeth River. Fishing is also allowed at Lake Watauga in Centennial Park, Cedar Hill Park Pond at Cedar Hill Park and Lake Sevier in Shelby Park. People often fish from their boats in the Cumberland River and area lakes utilizing boat ramps found in multiple Metro Parks locations. Please visit the Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency website for instructions on how to obtain a fishing license.
