The Bassmaster Elite Tour just announced they'll be coming to Dayton/Chickamauga Lake in February 2020.

It should be a Big Bass Bash!

Anyone know why FLW dropped all TN rivers stops?

I'm not so sure they "dropped" Tennessee River. There are some complicated dynamics and finances that go into setting schedules. It's not always about the quality of fishing - more about the quality of the folks putting out the money and the resources. True, FLW Tour doesn't include TN River in 2020 (it does include Cherokee Lake). But they have not announced schedules on Costa and BFL events yet. We'll see.

Of course Fish Dayton lost its primary mover & shaker, Dennis Tumlin. Tumlin left his economic development job in Rhea County and went to work for the TN Dept. of Tourism. He was the major driver and recruiter. Rhea County will be hard-pressed to find anyone to fill Tumlin's shoes. Of course he's still got a finger in the pie with Dept. of Tourism but now he has to think about the whole state, not just Rhea County.

It is a very large moving system in getting Pro/Ams and big events to come to a host city. It's not so much about big bass potential as it is which cities are willing to offer the money for the big circuits to come there. Host cities often have to bid and offer several incentives for the staff of each organization. It is a big investment for the host city. I've been involved in getting some of the national archery organizations to host events and it is unreal what goes on behind the scenes. If its anything like the archery stuff, the host city has to pay X amount of dollars, plus offer free accommodations to all the staff of the, etc. The whole event setup is usually done by city parks and recreation workers...there's a lot to put up, take down, and keep things running in between. It's all an investment that the host city hopes to gain in revenue from participants and spectators alike. The cities that do it the smoothest are the places the organizers like to come to.
