Several impoundment in Tennessee offer some great walleye fishing opportunities in April and May. Walleye, which is closely related to saucer and also native to the Tennessee River, offers great angling opportunities within both Chickamauga and Watts Bar reservoirs currently thanks to annual stockings by the TWA.
There were several reasons why stocking walleye over saucer were a good idea; when compared to saucer, walleye live longer, grow to a greater size, are more successful in overall hatchery production, utilize more areas in the reservoir and offer better year around fishing opportunities. Likes auger, the table fare for walleye is excellent and is one of the main reasons they are sought after.
