Pretty as a picture post card, Parksville Reservoir, aka Ocoee Lake, is a 1,900-acre lake in the southeast corner of the state, at Ocoee, TN. Home to the state record spotted bass, this cool-water reservoir supports a broad variety of fish species. Trout, bass, crappie, catfish and a variety of sunfish populate these waters. There are 47 miles of shoreline to explore, and much of the north shore is available for fishing from shore - thanks to Highway 64 paralleling the lake. There are several places around the lake to launch fishing and pleasure boats. During winter lake levels drop below the ramps, so four-wheel drive vehicles are recommended for launching. Canoes and kayaks are a nice option for fishing here.
