What can you all tell me about New Lake? Is it also a park? Is the fishing any good? Other than Henry Horton are there any nice parks with picnic tables or campsites anywhere close? Any nature trails or hiking trails within close driving distance. Summer is coming and I'd like to see what the options are.

There is a beautiful park in Maury Co called Chickasaw Trace with tables and hiking trails...Not sure of camping but the mountain bike trails are un-believable!! The park is off Hwy 7 in Columbia. Fishing at New Lake is ok considering what you want to catch but they don't have hiking trails or camping available. How far you looking to drive??

i hear the crappie are really biting out there on new lake. might wanna try a black and green 1/16 oz. cappie jig. bjb told me caught his limit in 15 minutes over near knocked up bluff! good luck on new lake you'll have to compete with the mexicans to even take a decent fish.

If you don't have the jigs...No need to worry because the bait shop that's located near the boat ramp has them for sale. Also having pretty good luck catching the rainbow trout on Berkley's powerbait or simply just a piece of corn...Sauger hitting real good also on south side of the lake on 3/4oz Hoppy's Stroker Jig...Be sure to attatch a trailer hook to the jig and tip it with a piece of hotdog that has been spiked with garlic flavored spike it

Never let it be said that I never said one good thing about this administration
So here goes I do approve of the clean up at the Lake, they have improved it they could have done better, but hey what should I expect?

Now take the lake and all the property around it in the city limits as it did increase property values and let the city collect city taxes off of it letís make it productive property as to taxpayers benefit.

How about using city prisoners labor to keep it mowed and cleaned up too.
