Question Looking for Places for 10-year Olds to Fish near I-75 Corridor

My cousin in Indiana and I want to get our sons and grandsons together for some semi-serious fishing the weekend of August 22. Does anyone know of any good places located approximately halfway between Knoxville and Indianapolis with family fishing lakes/ponds with boats and trolling motor rentals?

Upper clinch may be out of your way but I've only heard good things.... I've seen it at the sneedville, tn crossing and it looks very fishy .

Pickett State Park NE of Jamestown may be a good choice.

They have a 12 acre lake that is stocked with trout and have boats for rent.

The upper Clinch is not what you're looking for. It's rough going and very rural.

The only thing that comes to mind would be renting a pontoon boat on Norris, there really aren't any places that I know of who rent boats and motors on a smaller body of water. Canoe rental places are also non existent

Joe there is a Ky wildlife officer who views this board in fact I think he is In charge of a large project . I think it is Wolf Creek look up via search on here. I have exchanged comments on here a year or so back when I was looking for KY fishing info.

Sorry Joe,

I wasn't aware of how rough it is. I haven't personally fished it... Yet .

It's not white water rough, just rough. The locals are rough and the stream bed is comprised of rocks that were modeled after coral heads. It would shred a normal plastic canoe, and worked many drift boats over back in the days before we wised up and starting using rafts

The local people are an interesting sort. I've never had any issues but the potential for issues certainly is high. I would never venture up there without several firearms on board

Pickett looks like the best bet this time. Thanks, Backtrax.
