Hey all, hit the river today and ended up with 22 plus, most on black zebra midges sz 22, and the others came on dark green para's sz 22, and red zebra midges sz 22. The sulfers started coming off around 1:00. Everyone was catching fish today.

I also fished the SoHo on Saturday. I was skunked!! I was into a nice group of fish, including a 16-17" bow that kept frustrating me. They would not take anything I threw out there. I do not get to the SoHo often, so I am not familiar with what they may be hitting. Next time I go, I will try to be better prepared. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!:biggrin:

Rainbows will spawn in the spring and browns and brookies in the fall.

The next time you head up this way shoot me an e-mail. bmanis@charter.net. I get on the river at least 1-2 times a week.

wynnsman,

Thanks for the report. A bunch of my friends and I are heading up to the SoHo in about a month and hopefully the action is still hot. Can you or anyone else remind me what parts of the river are closed for the spawn starting November 1? I know that some of the area down around Big Springs and up near the big bend are closed.

I think the cabin we are staying in is on closed waters...

The two protected sections of water I know about are listed below:
- From the confluence of Bottom Creek downstream to Hickory Tree Bridge
- The tip of the island at Webb Bridge downstream to the bottom of the island below Weaver Pk bridge.

More information can be found on pg 17 of the following document:

Thinking about hitting the SoHo Sunday morning. Early - like sunrise. Either the Hickory Tree bridge section or the lower TVA section near Bottom Creek. Are they pulsing consistently right now? Any advice anybody wants to pass along would be most welcome.

Hey they have been running one for maybe a couple hours a day. Usually from 9-10, and 5-6.
