Garrett Lake

Garrett Lake is a 183 acre lake that lies about seven miles east of Dresden off State Highway 54. Take State Highway 190 north of Highway 54, go right at the split and follow directional signs to the lake and the better of the two ramps. The lake manager's phone is (731) 423-5725.

As in flatland lakes, bass run the banks early and late in the day and head for the deeper areas during the middle of the day. Eagle Hill Road runs into the lake, and if you can locate the submerged roadbed, you'll have a good place to fish for bass. The dam also holds bass, as do the large cove on the western side and the smaller one on the east. The upper end is shallow and not likely to have many bass.

It is open year 'round. Fishing facilities include a boat-launching ramp, fish attractors, a fishing pier, a picnic area and a picnic pavilion. Game fish species consist of largemouth bass, crappie, bluegills, redear sunfish, chain pickerel and blue and channel catfish.
