Fished the Clinch this afternoon. There must have been a small shad kill earlier. There were the occational threadfin shad dead on the bottom. I would have liked to been there when they were coming through the generators. I have always heard of the infamous kill on the Caney and White rivers which brings the big boys up, but I have never seen threadfins dead in the Clich. Hope it gets colder and maybe get another kill.

Somebody's been eating sushi...I know, which one is fatter!

Nice! Haven't heard of a shad kill from Norris before but it is very interesting...might have to do some further investigation...;) That is a beautiful rainbow by the way...

Very nice bow. I would like to be there when the shad kill went through also. By the looks of that fish they all ate well.

The water was off from 12Noon - 6PM. We did not get there until about 2 and left about 5:30. Cold. I am still trembling and talking in a falcetto voice from the hole in my waders.....at "my seat"!

I was on the Caney a few weeks back and had the leak and told myself to fix them. Then I looked at the gen. schedule yesterday and said, "freeze or don't fish". So much for putting things off.

I missed a couple of bigger fish. Broke off on the hook set. I have to get some fresh tippet. In all, I caught right at a dozen, ALL within the slot.

Sounds like a good day, besides the hole! Did you get the info from the TVA website or did you call in? I have been watching the website like a hawk and have not seen any times where TVA is not generating (2). I may have let that day slip by. I am having withdrawals from the Clinch!

I just happened to look thinking they would still be running. Rather be lucky than good!
