Crappie: Crappie fishing is good on Chickamauga Lake. Crappies are being caught in 8 to 15 ft. of water. Brush piles, docks and ledges. Numbers being caught are up with some real nice fish being caught. Crappie tubes around docks seem to be producing well.
Bass: Largemouth fishing on Chickamauga Lake is good Most of the bass are being caught 1 ft. to 12 ft. of water. Bass still remain very shallow with plastics producing the most numbers. Jigs, traps, and swim baits are also producing some real nice fish.
Bluegill: Bluegill fishing is good in the backs of coves and flats in 1 to 6ft.of water.
Catfish: Catfish are being caught in large coves and bays as well as some main river action. Lots of flat heads were caught last week in the 10 to 25 ft. range in the larger coves and bays and around heavy shallow cover.
Fishing Tip: Lots of trash and floating trees from the recent rains are in the main lake sections making it very dangerous, use extreme caution!
