Caney

Thanks Grumpy, this will be my first time on the Caney. Sounds like not much top water action. Any b.w.o.s, midges of sulfurs ? My plan is to do a guide float trip then wade this September/October....

me too Joe

I fished Miller Island Saturday and had similar results as Joe. Found midges heavy and the fish small. I saw a rise and fished to it and the lane must've been slammed full. I use a dry with a dropper...

boats with right of way?

That makes no sense whatsoever ! Not to challenge what you said but I would have to read the reg to believe it. I have had many days when a drift boat was above me and I didn't realize it. The guide...

snagged on the so.ho.

Senic Highway Really ?

One of my favorite drives is from Maryville through Walland, Townsend and to the park. The mountains and river make for pleasant drive even in traffic. For years I took the two lane road on the other...

supporting the move

I support the move to increase fees. I cannot think of one expense that has not increased in the past 10 years. Anyone who makes their living on the water should pay a fee. If guides average 120 days...

I tried to fish Coldwater. walked down and saw the same chocolate milk. I assumed it was due to a storm we didn't get in Knox. City proper. Was that not the case ?

lots of good information, thanks. I hear you guys talking about 'loops' for tying leaders to the fly line. The fly lines I use don't have loops so I use a nail knot to attach the leader the fly line....

Thanks WF, I wrote the dates on the boxes so I am confident how long I use them. Cleaning made no difference. I keep them inside. I wondered if fishing in the cold winter months was the problem or...

Fly Lines

I have a continuing problem with my fly lines. They break down. After one year, they look they have ring worm. The last 6 feet or so have very obvious broken rings around the line. I buy Cortland fly...

walleye and crappie stamps

I suggest that fishermen/women who catch any stocked fish be required to purchase a species stamp. I buy one for trout. Why not them ?

thanks big Sur

We all should be better advocates for the sport we love so dearly. The thought behind my question is that we pay a fee (trout stamp) because our trout are raised and released. Walleye fishermen and...

hatchery question

Does this issue only effect trout ? I ask this because I seem to remember walleye, crappie and other fish being stocked. If this is the case then it seems it is an issue that other...

Waterwolf, do you have a fishing report for the Holston ? I haven't fished it since May. Didn't think it fished well in the fall.

billyspey is correct, the fly shop boys can hook you up. The fishing can be great this time of year. Be careful, the guys may want to set you up with their dredging rig, lots of weight. Whatever they...
