I just noticed that the Clinch will be off this afternoon. Unfortunately, I'm stuck at work. Any ideas about tomorrow?? The upstream level's still over a thousand feet. Are they likely to give us 2 consecutive afternoons of fishing??

Looking at the predicted outflow tomorrow, I would expect a similar generation schedule.

I'm hoping to fish Monday's small window of opportunity. Anyone been on the Clinch in the last week or so? I'll probably fish above the weir. Monk

I have been to the Clinch the past two days. Caught one brown yesterday, and today I fished for one hour and didn't catch a thing. It looked to me like nobody was catching a lot of fish, if any. Good luck tomorrow if you go.

I went to the Clinch today and it was pretty slow. I caught one rainbow about 7 inches, and hooked into a couple others, but lost them. Overall it was very slow for me. I talked to a few folks who caught a few and said they were pretty small.

Went to the Clinch on Saturday....fished for a couple hours, only a few bites from some small fish. I didn't talk to many who did hook up.

I was up there Saturday and Sunday. Saturday I brought in a half dozen small fish, Sunday I had 4 or 5, with a couple nicer sized rainbows in there. Most of the fish were caught in the first hour or so after the water became wadable. I did talk to one fisherman who caught a pretty nice trout right up against the weir.

Lots and lots of people up there, though.
