Trout Stocking

In partnership with the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, NCCC volunteers have begun stocking the North Chickamauga Creek with rainbow trout. While species of bass and bream can be caught throughout the lower reaches of the creek, the introduction of rainbow trout to the gorge presents a new and unique opportunity for anglers in the area. While the stretch of the creek from Highway 27 to the confluence of the Tennessee River holds water (and fish) all year, the best time to fish for trout upstream from Dayton Pike would be from November to May when the creek typically holds flow.
