I guess Travis is pretty busy as usual, so I figured I would help him out as I'm sure you guys have already started fishing for August.

Post up those fish!

Trey,

Thanks, I have been swamped with work and family sickness lately. I will have the June and July results posted later tonight. I hope! :redface:

Travis,

Man, the thanks goes to you for doing this. I know I definitely couldn't keep up, so it's the least I can do. I know all too well how stressful this stuff gets.

That thing is freaking gorgeous. I don't know which sunfish that one is, it looks like a longear, but I have no way of being sure. Certainly pretty, and maybe a little prettier then a brook trout.

Jeffnles1, that is a very nice one. Pumpkinseeds make up about a third of my catch when panfishing locally. That is the most colorful one I've seen.

Waterwolf,
I think you're right that it is a longear. I've always heard these called pumpkinseeds, but after looking into it last night, it seems these are really longear sunfish. I edited my post to reflect the correct name.

Whatever the name, these are some of the most beautiful fish I've ever caught and rank right up there in my book with the Applachian Brook Trout in the Smoky Mtns.

Clinch River on 8/7/2010 using a #18 blood worm.



Argh:eek: You gave out the pattern. Just kidding; you know I do the same thing and the larger fish were killing them. The smaller ones will pass on them usually; but, be persistent and try different depths if you want to hook a bigger fish...

Nice fish and picture!

Thanks! I should have gotten some shots of Rodney and his boat as he drifted by, and I am waiting to get a good shot at those eagles.

It was pretty consistent with the blood worm and buzzer combo all morning using my typical summer deep water midge technique. I have found that if you keep the fly down on the bottom, your odds of hooking a large fish are greatly increased. I did manage a few in the slot with one touching 18". That was probably my best day on the Clinch as far as quality goes. I haven't caught the numbers of big fish this year as last year, but the numbers of 12 - 16" trout are good.

I think so too... I use Xink (nymph dressing) on my tippet and flies to get them to drop quicker and to help them break any kind of cohesion in the water (especially on my smaller midges).

Time got away from me this month and probably no time to fish tomorrow. Congrats to Plateau Angler on the continuation of the streak.

I hope recently deceased rainbows count. I had this one for breakfast Sunday on Deep Creek between bryson place and burnt spruce. Caught on #14 yellowish stimulator (I think) with some kind of a yellow foam body I haven't seen this particular fly for sale at LRO but really liked it. I bought it at a little hunting/fishing store across from the iron skillet in bryson city:

Water was up from the nights rain and this was my best trip yet, seemed as though every other cast (flip....:biggrin:) produced a strike. Second trip out using the weenie for a dropper and I'm sold on them! As for the bows on the stringer, I try for a limit when in "speck" waters, figure it helps the specks if only a little.

Lesson learned..... During the hot months, get your butt in the mountains if it rains!

Glad to see someone is killing some of the rainbows up there. Ten years or so ago, I used to catch probably 95 percent brookies in the upper reaches of Walker Camp Prong. Unfortunately in the last few years, that number seems to have changed significantly. I don't eat fish but everytime I catch a bow up there, I'm tempted to whack it on the head...
