About Us

Our Mission

Mayor Gary Louallen

FishDayton.com's goal is to establish Dayton, TN, as "The New Bass Fishing Capitol in the South".  We are blessed to have a such a beautiful natural resource in Lake Chickamauga which has consistently produced some of the biggest bass in the country.

Recognizing Lake Chickamauga's potential, Mayor Gary Louallen, has led the efforts in establishing Dayton as a stop on the biggest bass fishing tournaments in the world.

We are also very proud to have the full support of our community and local government. Our law enforcement agencies including Sheriff Mike Neal and the Rhea County Sheriff's Dept, Rhea County Homeland Security, and the Dayton City Police Dept provide tremendous support for event organizers and attendees.
