It's pretty obvious there is a problem, and it's a recent problem because early season when the water first went off, the fish were in outstanding condition, as good as I've seen in many years....

It seems to me everyone is pretty much on the same page here. If guides are to be licensed it should be for safety or to protect a potential client. That's not what this is about. This is about fund...

In the words of everyone's favorite crack head, Rodney King, "can't we just all get along?". I think it's safe to say very few people alive have floated the Clinch more than me. I have done it in...

Hard to tell from the photo if the dark areas you are referring to are actually (raised) or if it is just discoloration. I have noticed a dark discoloration on rainbows in the Clinch for many...

Chad..I've been on the Holston several times this week and about all that's hatching are midges. Haven't seen any caddis yet but the fish are active. We mostly fished bead head pheasent tail nymphs...

Floating Clinch

The Clinch is easily floatable in a small jonboat on one or two generators although the fishing will be much better with one. A 12 foot jonboat with a six horse should have no problem making headway...
