Crappie: Crappie fishing is starting to pick up on Chickamauga Lake. The Crappie are starting to show up in shallow water near the spawning areas. Using hair jigs and plastic jigs under a float have been the best producer for most anglers. Trolling in the 13ft range is also producing fish.

Bass: Largemouth fishing on Chickamauga Lake is fair at best. Most of the bass are being caught from 2 ft. to 14ft. of water on a variety of baits, rattletraps, jigs, square bills, silver buddies, and TN Rigs. The bass are trying to move shallow so that's a good place to start looking.

Bluegill: Bluegill fishing is fair around structure in 5ft to10ft of water.

Catfish: Catfish are being caught in coves and bays as well as some main river action. Lots of blues were caught last week in the 18 to 22 ft. on cut baits.

Fishing Tip: Spawning bass is what replenishes our lakes please respect them and take care of them.
