I got a Lamson Konic at LRO. So far, I've just caught smallies on it, but it seems like a really good match to my 7 wt. You won't need much drag for the bass, but stripers and carp are runners...

I would concentrate on the lower stretches closer to Maryville. I usually catch smallies on 2'' to 4'' minnow and crawfish imitations (clousers, slumpbusters, etc) and gawdy surface flies(hoppers,...

AA, I understand how you feel about targetting "guards" on beds. However, I saw nothing in the fishing report that actually encouraged people to target fish on beds. It's a personal ethical decision,...

There's also a ramp under the 66 bridge. Dam to 66 would be a decent 4-5 mile float. From 66 to 7 Islands is 15+ miles- not doable in a drift boat unless you row downstream the whole time. I usually...

Parts can be bankable from the WMA down there, but if they are schooling on the other side, you're just gonna get a lot of casting practice. The other key is current. It's been my experience that you...

Big Max-

Exactly! Grouse favor what a forester calls pole-sized timber- stands that are 15-45ish years old. Active timber management (and harvest) is often wildlife's best friend in extensively forested areas.
