It's a tough situation to figure out. The 12 hour off schedule isn't good for the river IMO, for the same reasons mentioned. I'm not quite sure it's the root of the thinner hatches this season, but...

I've found those types of injuries are usually from ospreys, eagles or otters.

Herons don't tend to pick at the flesh.....So they usually just grab the fish and turn it up like Shawn mentioned.

I disagree with this. The generation schedules makes it tough on the anglers to get to the fish, but I'm pretty sure the trout do just fine and grow well when theres plenty of water. Now, high fall...

Water temperatures in the high sixties are very bad for trout. Sure, they can survive but not after the ordeal of being caught and released. Water with water temperatures over 65 degrees holds much...

Mainly, They've just not kept up with it.

Over the years TVA has worked (sometimes against their will) to improve tailwater conditions at almost all of the TVA controlled tailwaters. The Clinch...

Unfortunately, it's really not even close to what it was in the 80's, or even the 90's for that matter. The river used to grow fish from small stockers to trophies. Now, large fish are stocked as...

I'm very surprised that the guide license was approved. I think it will be a good thing overall.

I know eliminating the one day fishing license was a bad thing. Only hurts TWRA IMHO.

First off.....Grumpy made a very valid point. Warm water guides (lake, river, pond etc) will oppose this and there are a whole lot more of them than there are of us (coldwater guides).

Today, An #18 bwo parachute would get a rise out of any fish you saw rise and even a few that were laying were they should be.

And it is probably enforced less than any other tail water in the state. There's probably 100 poachers for every guide or angler that honors the Clinch slot.

You guys need to visit Nance's Ferry. Access from Blane TN. Good wade fishing starts just above the upper ramp and goes all the way upriver to the bend.

Just be mindful of other anglers.
