Norris Lake is a reservoir completed in 1936 by damming the Clinch River. Located in Anderson, Campbell, Claiborne, Grainger, and Union counties in Tennessee, this was the first big lake project, for flood control, undertaken by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA). The lake, dam and the town of Norris, Tennessee are named after George W Norris, who was a United States senator from Nebraska having wrote the legislation creating the TVA.

The nearby town of Norris was created to house the workers and their families.

Norris lake’s main fish species are the Black Bass, the Striped Bass, Crappie, Walleye, and Sunfish. There are several recreational opportunities like waterskiing, fishing, swimming, and boating along with conservation lands such as Norris Dam State Park, The Cove Creek Wildlife Management Area, and Chuck Swan State Forest that offer hiking and other activities while protecting undeveloped areas.
