Boone is a 4,520-acre TVA reservoir located in upper east Tennessee. The dam has impounded the South Fork of the Holston River since 1952. Boone's major tributaries are the Watauga and South Fork of the Holston Rivers which originate in North Carolina and Virginia, respectively. Although Boone is relatively small, it is fertile enough to support impressive numbers of fish.
Largemouth and smallmouth bass, striped bass, hybrid striped bass, and catfish are the predominant game fish. Since Boone can support high densities of fish, the TWRA has stocked blue catfish, striped bass, hybrid striped bass, and crappie during the past several years to enhance the fishery.
There are seven public boat ramps and eight private marinas located around the reservoir. The 122-miles of shoreline are highly developed by private landowners and little public land is available. A large and excellent public fishing pier is located at the Devault Bridge near Winged Deer Park. This pier can be easily accessed by the disabled.
