Tick time in Tennessee: Milder winter could mean more ticks this season

A mild winter and wetter spring/early summer is leading to a larger bug population this season. When on the lake, be sure to prepare for ticks, mosquitoes and chiggers. While the Corps of Engineers does mow and maintain developed recreation areas, that will not totally halt these aggravating pests from coming into the area. Learn about them and pack the appropriate insect repellent.

wbir.com For most Tennesseans, Lone Star and common dog ticks are the two people should watch out for. Lone Star ticks carry the infamous red meat allergy-causing 'Alpha-gal,' and dog ticks carry Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever.

Parents warn about electric shock drowning after 15-year-old girl's tragic death

Swimming should be at a designated beach or out on the lake. Marinas on the lake are required to post signage and limit where customers can and cannot swim. If you are told not to swim in the marina harbor, it is so you will be safe to swim at other locations!

wowktv.com The parents of a 15-year-old girl, who tragically died from electric shock drowning while swimming near her family’s lake house, are speaking out about the rarely reported phenomenon after it took the lives of two more women.

Healing Waters Fly Fishing May 18, 2019

The Friends of Dale Hollow National Fish Hatchery teamed up with the hatchery, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps), and Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing Incorporated (PHWFF) to sponsor a day of fly fishing on the Obey River and hatchery public fishing area for local veterans. PHWFF is dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of disabled active military service personnel and disabled veterans through fly fishing and associated activities including education and outreach. A small but spirited group of ten veterans enrolled in the Murfreesboro, Tennessee Program of PHWFF took part in the event. Special thanks to the Corps for scheduling water releases around the event, allowing participants access to the river. The hatchery stocked three hundred rainbow trout in the public fishing area in support of the event.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (April 12, 2019) – The Corps of Engineers Annual Day Use Passes for the expiration year of 2020 and use for the 2019 recreation season are now available for purchase. Save money if you are a repeat user of the Corps of Engineers’ day use areas.

Due to flooding and campsite damage resulting from record high water in February of 2019, the island campsites at Lillydale Campground will not be able to be restored by the May 17th revised opening date as we had planned. Renovation in the mainland part of the campground is well underway. However, sites 101 to 115 on the island will have a delayed opening well into July.
The reason for the delay is due to excessive erosion that washed out most of the campsites and undercut the bank several feet. The entire island will need to undergo bank stabilization as well as new site construction.
A revised opening date for Lillydale Island, sites 101 to 115 has been set for July 15, 2019. It may open earlier, or it may be open later. At this time we just do not know. We regret this inconvenience. Continue to check the banner information at the top of the www.Recreation.gov reservation page for site updates.
