Old Hickory Lake was formed in 1954 with the completion of the Old Hickory Dam, a project overseen by the Army Corps of Engineers, who maintain the reservoir. The dam’s power station provides the region with electricity. Though water levels fluctuate somewhat, they are more stable than those of most other Tennessee reservoirs. This consistency, combined with a strong forage base, makes Old Hickory well-suited to fishing and other recreation.
