Question Favorite place to Wade or Bank Fish the Caney?

I'm not too familiar with Caney Fork, but me and wife are looking for a good accessible area to get out of the car and get in the water to catch a few.
Of course my Bass Boat won't make the trip, so are there places to catch walleye without floating the river or is it just trout?

Any suggestions are appreciated.

Behind the rest area just off the interstate, they even have a parking lot for people fishing. Then get back on the interstate headed east take the first exit not far down the road and turn right. A few miles down the road on the right is an access point with parking lot. Below the dam has plenty of access.

Only time I've caught walleye is in the winter time near the dam.

Thanks Brian. Does anyone know the mile marker for this Rest Stop?

Youíll go across the caney 4 times before you get to the rest area. It is right before Buffalo valley exit. Check out google earth and you will see the rest area. Sorry about not identifying where it was. It is the first with a bathroom as you head east. There is a just parking area youíll see several miles before you hit the rest area.

Is this the area in question? Smith County I-40 Rest Area?

Yes that's it. Good areas in both directions with deep and shallow water.

Spot on thatís it. The little brown roof you see closer to the river is the fishing parking lot. Walk towards the river from there and youíll see a trail to get you to the river. On the gravel bar the deeper waters is on the opposite side of the river. After you try there get back on the interstate and get off at Buffalo valley and go right. Youíll find Happy Hollow on the right a few miles down the road. Plenty off spots here to.
