The Natchez Trace State Parkway is a fisherman’s dream.* Along the historic highway are multiple fishing spots including lakes, streams and reservoirs. Harmony Farm alone is home to three stocked ponds, providing hours of ample enjoyment to the casual and competitive fisherman. Here are just some of the great fishing spots along the Trace:
Davis Lake Campground
This 200 acre lake in Northeast Mississippi is the ideal place to cast for some of Mississippi’s best catches including largemouth bass, striped bass, crappie, catfish and bream. The campground has 14 sites on the lake, many of them with space to anchor a boat. Whether you choose to boat out to deeper waters or cast off from the peaceful shores, Davis Lake is the perfect spot for a day of fishing.
Natchez State Park
If you enjoy competitive fishing, you may just find yourself breaking a record at Natchez State Park. The largest bass in Mississippi history—weighing a whopping 18.15 pounds—was caught in the Natchez Lake in 1992. But even casual fishers and boaters can enjoy this historic reserve. With a bathhouse, boat launch ramp, picnic pavilion, and even laundry services available, the Natchez State Park is a destination any Trace traveler should include on their journey.
Settling into our bed and breakfast style farm doesn’t mean the end of the fishing journey. Harmony Farm is home to three fully stocked fishing lakes nestled among its 230 acres of pastures, woodlands and riding trails. Spend an afternoon at one of our lakes as you enjoy some of the most beautiful scenery Mississippi has to offer, and then come back to your private, one-bedroom cottage to cook your catch of the day. We have a fully equipped kitchen for those who want to enjoy the freshest catch possible.
Looking for a peaceful night’s rest after a long day out on the lake? We’d be glad to have you rest with us at Harmony Farm. Contact us for available dates.
