I was finally able to get out this year on Sunday the 16th. My friend Jack took me out on his boat to do some scouting and little fishing too. I was able to catch a few on what was really a good day. The first half of the trip was purely scouting, and we were able to locate several schools of fish. During the second half we concentrated more on fishing.

Hehe that looks like quite the snow bank on the shore LOL, either that or you were fishing the Suez Canal.

It looks and sounds like you had a great outing. I looked at the pictures before I read the text and immediately thought that you must be one tough son of a gun to be dressed so lightly in such a cold environment!

John,
I thought those were huge snow banks at first.:smile: Glad you guys were able to get out and have a great time.

Awesome! Haven't thrown a fly at a red in many years & wish I lived closer to the coast.

Shawn,
I was fishing with a friend at a spot of his so out of consideration I modified the picture. You are going to have to make a trip this way to fish for reds. I don't have a boat, but would be more than happy to take you wading during the summer through about November.

John,
I would love to experience that trip! I will keep you in mind if I can get down that way this year. You are welcome to fish the Clinch with me. I usually encourage most of my guests to get a rustic cabin at Norris Dam so that you are super close to the river. Plus, they are very cheap and I enjoy the fireplaces and stone work from the CCC Camp workers back in the day.

Shawn,
I appreciate the offer and will keep you in mind. This past year I did not get up to the mountains to do much trout fishing at all. It was a challenging year.

It makes up a little for how far I live from the trout fishing :smile:
