The well known Big Bass Splash is considered to be the world's largest amateur big bass fishing tournament and has been featured on a National Geographic television special will be holding an event June 10th – 11th 2017 here on Chickamauga Lake.

The city of Dayton also known as “Fish Dayton” has spent the last three years promoting fishing and tournaments here on Chickamauga Lake. Dayton has hosted numerous big name tournaments in the last several years and now with the addition of the Big Bass Splash it appears they are definitely seeing the fruits of their labor.
