Lake Chickamauga Bass Guide


Lake Chickamauga is quickly becoming one of our favorite lakes for our guided bass fishing trips. Guide trips on Lake Chickamuaga consistently provide lots of bass catching action for our clients and they enjoy having the opportunity to catch largemouth, spotted and smallmouth bass during their guided lake trip. Our bass fishing guides like the size of the lake because they have plenty of water to fish and get away from other boat traffic. If you like catching bass, Lake Chickamauga is a place you should spend a day or two bass fishing.

Believe it or not, Lake Chickamauga is a bass fishery where we can pull up on a point and catch thirty to forty bass. We routinely do this on our guide trips and in many cases, we may only fish three or four spots for the entire day. If you're looking for a incredible bass fishing experience you need to visit Lake Chickamauga with a Reel Job Fishing guide.

Chickamauga reservoir is located on the Tennessee River just north of Chattanooga, TN. Lake Chickamauga stretches 59 miles upriver form the dam to Watts Bar Dam. It provides 784 miles of shoreline and about 36,000 acres of water surface. For years now, Lake Chickamauga has been considered to be the hottest Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) bass lake in Tennessee. Bass generally range in size from 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 pounds for the majority of anglers catches, but bass in the seven plus pound range are not uncommon.

Lake Chickamauga has become popular among bass fishermen for its above average catch rate per hour and the wide range of tackle anglers can use to catch the bass. It's the kind of lake where a father can take his son on a guided bass fishing trip and we're confident the kid will catch fish. When compared to other lakes in our area, Lake Chickamauga is a much less technical bass fishery than some of our other bass lakes we guide on. This suits well for beginners and novice anglers looking for a lake to improve their bass fishing skills.


Fly fishermen wanting to pursue bass could not pick a more consistent lake in our area to target bass on the fly. Floating and sinking lines are both fished on our guide trips. Spring through the Fall, fly anglers can experience some great topwater action with an assortment of poppers, dahlberg divers and shad patterns. If the action isn't on top we'll have our clients throwing clousers, coyotes and other baitfish imitations to fish below the surface. The overall fertility of Lake Chickamauga and its large numbers of game fish, makes it an outstanding location for our fly fishing clients.

Fishing Tackle & Gear Used

Although our primary tackle used is conventional gear we do welcome fly fishermen, especially during the peak fishing months. However, clients need to understand that their fly casting skill level will significantly determine their success on the lake. If you know how to double-haul and you consider yourself an advanced fly caster, you'll be fine.
