I like the clinch and fish it often, but its been below par last few years...it tough to beat the South Holston on any given day and worth the drive....the Holston below Cherokee has the potential to take the title if it only had the decent temps year round...

I dont kno much about the holston below cherokee..How are the temps different from other tailwaters?

Coming from Kentucky I have to go with the Cumberland. However, its big water and better suited to floating rather than wading.

I'll take the Caney Fork. It's really pretty in some areas and has a lot of fishable areas a good distance from the dam. The generation schedule is tough sometimes though.
You East TN boys (was raised one myself) need to give it a shot sometime.

Hey Deedub and oldbeau,
Ditto on the caney. *Close to home and I fish it often. *Holds some big fish. *

THE CABINS ARE TENNESSEE STATE PARK UNITS.
LOOK UP EDGAR EVANS STATE PARK....THE TOWNHOUSES
ARE GREAT VALUE...
LEAVE ME A TROUT OR TWO....

You should have Caney on their thats my favorite! ;D

I'm not familiar with the caney.. I have never fished it. What dam is it below?
01-23-2007, 03:37 PM
The Caney flows from Center Hill Dam and lake.

I love them all!! 8-)
The Holston has really improved the last few years. *If you're fortunate enough to have a good spot to fish, you can even have elbow room. *Heck, I've been up there before and fished all day and did not even see another person.
I learned to fly fish on the Clinch, so it will always hold a special place for me, but combat fishing just is not my thing. *Now if I had a float tube or a drift boat or something to put some casting distance around me and get me to some places most waders can't, well, there are some mighty big browns on the chilly old Clinch.
