Major volunteering then…Major League Fishing!

Come help clean the Tennessee River’s Chickamauga Lake two days prior to Major League Fishing’s prestigious Bass Pro Tour. Held on Sunday, April 7, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., this cleanup will be the final installment of the Tennessee River Grand Slam Cleanup, which is Keep the Tennessee River Beautiful’s four-cleanup effort in the Great American Cleanup. A signature event of Keep America Beautiful, the Great American Cleanup engages more than 1.5 million volunteers in more than 20,000 communities nationwide each year.

Living Lands & Waters will support this cleanup in Dayton, bringing plate boats to transport volunteers and debris removed from the river and shorelines. Major League Fishing’s anglers will be on the river during the cleanup as they identify fishing sites they plan to use during the tournament.

Volunteers will receive a free lunch from the Dayton Boat Dock and Marina provided by Keep the Tennessee River Beautiful.

Stage Four of the MLF Bass Pro Tour will begin Tuesday, April 9 on Chickamauga Lake and will end Sunday, April 14. As in all Bass Pro Tour events, the Tennessee River venue will feature seven hours of daily live stream coverage during each competition day, with free access to the real-time broadcast found at

Also, the Dayton event will be developed into a two-hour television show that will air on Discovery Channel in the fourth quarter of 2019. It will repeat on Sportsman Channel in first and second quarters of 2020.
