Hardin County Fishing Guide
Savannah is more than just the seat of Hardin County, it’s also the Catfish Capital of the World! Famous for its incredible fishing opportunities, the local waters of the Tennessee River offer plenty of large catfish as well as bass and a number of other popular species of fish. While fishing is excellent year-round, the best fishing can be had in the spring and fall each year. Visit the TWRA online for detailed information about local fishing and TN State Parks for info on fishing in Pickwick. Savannah and the surrounding area is also home to several fishing competitions and events throughout the year. For more information on upcoming tournaments and contests, contact the Hardin County CVB.
Fishing licenses go on sale February 18 and remain valid until the end of February the following year. For information on fishing licenses, including requirements, fees, and regulations, visit the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency online.
