Has anyone heard of Walleye being caught lately on Chickamaug? I hear some caught recently near Dayton in 40-50 fow.

I caught one below the dam last week that was probably an easy 20-22". I didn't measure him because I wasn't messing with any teeth lol.

I caught a couple last year down around the nuke plant. They're mean to cranks and hair jigs

Does anybody know what happened to the sauger ? After all, they are a fish native to our big rivers. When this fish becomes locally extinct, I'd think that might raise some eyebrows !

Well the construction of the dams put them behind the 8 ball. I still catch them in the holston and french broad rivers but I don't know if they are stocked or not

The decline of sauger has been a mystery. TWRA had folks at Tenn. Tech do some research on it. Obviously dams and water conditions/flow had some influence on the decline, although sauger were here in good numbers for a long time after dams were built. Researchers never could their finger on a specific cause.

But TWRA began stocking walleye five or six years ago below Watts Bar specifically to try and replace the sauger stock. Walleye are MUCH more tolerant of marginal water conditions as compared to sauger. It has been highly successful. Most walleye are being caught immediately below Watts. Bar but as noted above, as lot of them make their way downstream as well.
