Beautiful Tims Ford Lake in East Tennessee!


Tims Ford Reservoir is on the Elk River and is about 86 miles from Nashville.  In Tims Ford the fish densities are greater than most of the other TVA Reservoirs due to the high-level dense forage base of Threadfin Shad, Gizzard Shad, and Alewife.

The Striper and Hybrid fishing is simply off the chart! 20 and 30 fish days are frequent (TN allows catch and release!).  StriperFun offers day trips on Tims Ford lake year-round (weather permitting).  We use fresh caught live Gizzard and Alewives shad, as well as a variety of artificial lures to cast and troll with!  We troll umbrella rigs to target suspended schools of fish.


Pricing Guide (Fishing Only) The limit for Striped Bass or Hybrid Bass is 2 fish per person in combination, 15" min. length.

Deposits & Cancellation Policy

A $100.00 deposit is required when you make your reservation for any StriperFun fishing trip.   The deposit is non-refundable, but we will reschedule with at least two (2) weeks advance notice.  Re-scheduling requests or cancellation without at least two (2) weeks advance notice will cause your deposit to be forfeit.

Re-scheduling is not allowed because of predicted foul weather, including predicted rain.  We fish in the rain and your boat is covered.  The Captain reserves the right to re-schedule if the weather turns bad on the day of the trip.  Generally, this decision will be based upon high or dangerous muddy water, hazardous travel conditions (snow or ice) or frequent lightening the morning of the trip. If your trip is cancelled because of the aforementioned dangerous conditions, your deposit is good for another day.
