Here is the fishing report from the TWRA:
Chickamauga Reservoir: Reservoir Conditions: Summer normal elevation: 682.0 feet. Winter normal elevation: 676.0 feet. Current elevation: 678.0 feet. The water surface temperature is 42 to 44 degrees.
Largemouth Bass: Creature baits worked slow and lipless lures for the reaction bites used in 10 feet of water is the technique being used for a few good stringers.
Smallmouth Bass: Jigs used along the steeper banks in the upper reservoir and lower reservoir are being used to catch a few good fish.
Spotted Bass: Various locations and techniques are being used to catch spotted bass. Most spots are caught by anglers targeting LMB.
Crappie: Offshore structure and deep channel breaks are holding the greater number of crappie. Minnows and/or jigs used in 15 plus feet of water is the most popular pattern.
Striped bass: Mid and upper reservoir fish are being caught by those using jigs or crankbaits.
Bluegill: Most bluegill are being caught by crappie anglers.
Sauger: No confirmed catches but a few sources suggest a few upper reservoir fish are being caught. These sources suggest that the total number of fish being caught is low.
Catfish: Live baiters are catching large fish in the main channel in the deeper holes in the river.
Cordell Hull Lake: Fishing is slow.
Bass: A few are being caught on float and fly method while fishing channel banks with a 15 foot leader.
Dale Hollow: Fishing is slow. Water temperature is 46 degrees. Lake is stable.
