Crappie: Crappie fishing is good on Chickamauga Lake. Crappie are being caught around structure and old grass beds in 10to 16 ft of water. Tubes and minnows seem to be the best producers. Some good catches reported also around docks and bluff walls.
Bass: Largemouth fishing on Chickamauga Lake is fair. Some bass have moved out on humps and ledges , some still shallow and some being caught out of grass beds. Big jigs , cranks, and swim baits r producing some fish. Some top water action early and late in the day.
Bluegill: Bluegill fishing is good around drops and the ledges in 15 to 17 ft of water using crickets.
