Tennessee River Catfish, Aug. 16th

Chattanooga - Freshwater Fishing Report

Catfishing continues to be steady in the Tennessee River in Southeast Tennessee. While we've been catching mostly "eater-sized" blues between 2 and 8 lbs, the occasional trophy catfish turns up regularly.

Most recently Ryan Edde from Murfreesboro, Tenn., along with his daughters Kirsten and Kayla, caught a great 26 lb. blue on light tackle, along with an cooler full of fish for the frying pan.

Also, the National Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame recently certified one of my client's catches on 10 lb. test line as a new Line Class World Record in the "Catch & Release" category. See: www.sceniccityfishing.com/record.html

Fishing for other species including largemouth, smallmouth, crappie and bluegill has been fair. Anglers should plan on basic summertime patterns, which means fish slow and deep.

Target Species:

Catfish, Bass, Crappie
