    Chickamauga Lake Fishing Report

    Water level:682.28 (Summer Pool 683)
    Water Temp:70-74

    Thereís been a few different patterns working for me on Chickamauga.
    The first one is flipping the cattails with a ZOOM Z Craw in green pumpkin colors with a 3/8 ounce Pro Tungsten weight. Iím using 25lb Seaguar Abraz X on a Lewís Custom Lite flipping stick. You have to fish slowly some of the fish are guarding fry. Iíve done better with this pattern towards Dayton and on up the river itself.

    Iíve not really been able to get a good topwater bite and I donít know why. Because I feel it should be happening right now. I keep trying it every day and I expect it to kick in soon. Also fishing a white swim jig has caught a few fish around the cat tails.

    The next pattern is of course ledge fishing. I have caught a few bass ledge fishing they have all been quality fish. But I just havenít seen that many out on the ledges yet! Thatís going to change really soon.

    I have found fish closer to the mouths of the creeks and on points. A ZOOM swimmer swim bait has worked best for me. Also, a ĺ ounce football jig that I make has caught some good fish. You can catch some on a ZOOM Ole Monster as well. Plum and Blue Fleck on a Ĺ to ĺ ounce Pro Tungsten weight. Iím fishing the jig and worm on 15lb Fluorocarbon and the swim bait on 17lb.

    I still have days available in June and July.
    June will be here soon and the ledge bite will be happening! Soí if you like to do a trip feel free to call, text or email me!

    Be safe on the water and good fishing!
