Talk more about winter fishing please. I've heard that slinging streamers and small midges work.
Thanks for changing the direction of the discussion David.
Big streamers fished out of a boat on high water = perhaps the most fun on any Tennessee trout tailwater...in my humble opinion. Love winter when the crowds are gone but the fish are still hungry!!! The browns will be hungry when they come off the spawn and December through February is prime time to chase them with streamers...
