Seven miles east of Dresden, 185-acre Garrett Lake is full of largemouth bass, bluegill, crappie, bream, pike, blue and channel catfish, redear sunfish and chain pickerel. Garrett Lake, located in the eastern part of Weakley County, is operated by the Tennessee Game & Fish Commission. The lake has a boat launching ramp, fish attractors and a handicapped accessible fishing pier. Garrett Lake fishing tip: If a topwater bait doesn’t work, try a spinner blade, fished at a medium level, or a plastic worm, crawfish or lizard, fished on the bottom. Since fish move from level to level depending on lake conditions, the time of day and the time of year, catching fish is a matter of fishing the right bait at the right level.
