This is a river I hardly ever hear anyone talking about on here. I plan on fishing for smallies and carp there this spring and early summer. I'll be fishing around the Erwin area. Anyone know how well this river fishes or how well the topwater bite is during the spring?

I live downstream in Greene Co. and fish it all spring and summer..yes I am a smallmouth junkie. The river up in Erwin gets fished hard! Come on down to Greene Co below the dam..smallies galour.

Kyle,
Is there a dam there at the place where 70 crosses the river? Do you know if there are public access points below there? Thanks-Bran

yes that is the ****..There are a couple of Twra access points down below but we mostly put in and take out on private land..all the bridges have access but some of the roads down to the water are a little rough, but doable.

Thanks Kyle,
I would be coming from VA that way a couple times this year. I roughly know the area but I would'nt have my canoe with me, I was just thinking about wading some, probably just go to the bridges and try to find some sand bars to wade a little.--Bran

Thanks again Kyle,
I'll file that till I'm able to get out thataway and try to get up with you. I'm thinking the last week of May right now, I hope to fish all week at one place or another. Take care---Bran <((((>><

yes and just below there is a campground with about 1 mile of shoals..They charge you $2 to park and it is worth it.

Good luck,
Kyle

What is the name of that campground? Sorry, I have been "listening" in on your posts. I travel through Greeneville often and cannot wait to find a new place to stop and wet a line.

That campground looks good. Looks like the management enjoys running the place too. That's a good sign. For fifteen dollars, I'm gonna have to set a tent up there sometime soon for sure. Thanks for posting that link.

Anyone fished the Nolichucky recently? I was gonna go last weekend, but I figured it would be running too high after the rain last friday and saturday.

Well, it's a start. Wednesday I caught a couple of red eyes downstream of Bewley's Chapel Rd bridge.
