I am heading out for a few hours this morning...if; I can keep my cellphone from diverting me:biggrin:.

fishingman62,
If you see a brand new Minn Kota Trolling Motor Prop in the shallows; give me a shout - I guess my lock nut was not secured enough and lost it Monday...

sorry shaun was already headed over there before you sent the email or i would have kept my eyes open for you...did you have any luck today....
dan this was one of the worst days i ever had on the clinch.... only 3 fish with another 1/2 doz or so good hits...fished the same flys as last week when i caught fish all day.... a whole new world today.... i even broke down and used a midge that a nice guy gave that he was doing fair on .....but it was a nice day to be out ....i was way up fishing from the top of the second island back down ......

Did you notice how calm the water today was? I had to keep my flies in the film for effectiveness;) Here is an underwater shot I took this morning. It looks like it is upside down due to the refraction of the calm surface.

I was fishing emergers and griffith's gnats to a rise. The flow was too slow for nymph fishing at my location:biggrin:....

Earlier in the week; I was fishing a few new streamers during the heavy winds and this fly worked surprisingly well:

Thanks for the posts madisonboats & fishingman62. I was wondering how the Clinch was fishing. A friend and wife are up from Texas Mon & Tues. and we plan to either float from PO to the 61 bridge or wade fish. Weekday turbine action appears to be steady on from 9:00 a.m., so early wade fishing or floating lower section appears to be options. And just curious, what matter of creature does a Polar shrimp immitate???:smile:

...And just curious, what matter of creature does a Polar shrimp immitate???:smile: Just a basic stimulator/attractor...Kind of relates to what does a orange rooster tail simulate?:smile:

It is a steelhead fly, but it doesn't surprise me that regular trout will hit it. Just pisses them off I reckon.

Actually; I tie this version from [Peter Gathercole's - The Fly-Tying Bible]. A good variation is Fl. Yellow Body, Olive Tail, and green hackle. I put a Gold Bead on some....

*My hook size is 10-12.
