Among Chattanooga’s many amenities flow our region’s diverse waterways – from lakes, tailwaters, and rivers to both cold and warm water streams. In addition to the numerous types of fish habitats, anglers also have an array of fish species to pursue. In fact, Tennessee has more native freshwater species of fish than any other state, and the Chattanooga area is one of the top regions to find a variety of freshwater catches. One of the best aspects though, is that wherever you go, striking scenery awaits.
