View Full Version : Clinch Report [Jan. 14, 2012]

I fished the Clinch yesterday for a little over an hour. Fishing was a little slow while the water was still going down. Once the water level steadied; the fish became fairly active hitting midge emergers. I got my first 2012 rainbow, brown, and oddly enough-no brook yesterday.:confused:

Adult midges were coming off in tan around size 18-20. However; I think fishing emergent patterns to a rise were most effective. The fish looked very healthy and clean.

Nice catch; your fingers add a lot of color to the photo.

Shawn, Thanks for the report and picture. It is great to hear a tailwater report finally and I hope we can finally meet up sometime on the Clinch now that the water level MAY be moserating. I'm sure that the river missed you. The trout likely did not miss you though ;)
