Mike,
I feel your pain bud. Mihai is in town for ten-days and it looks like bad timing. I agree with Jim's assumption on the water release schedule. I usually check the trend guide and try to gauge how much the water is going down per day to get around full pool. Then; hope we do not get any more monsoons.

However; I have a good feeling about the Clinch this year! It seems to me that the weir being closed down has helped create a no-fishing/stress zone for the fish and the sulphurs are thick in the vegetation.
I think TWRA should have this on the Clinch every year for a trout (brown in particular) spawn period - closing up past clear creek's inflow to the Clinch.

We may fish in NC if you want to join us...
