Pretty nasty conditions yesterday to be out there. I guess it could have been worse, but combining rain with wind just isn't much fun. I have had quite a lot of luck on the Clinch lately. I made it out on Thurs afternoon and did quite well. Saw lots of redds and they were taking the standard midge fare. Most fish were caught in deep slow runs (like what is found above the weir dam) bouncing the midge on the bottom. One likely looking spot I cast to probably 15 times before finally getting a fish to take. Best fly was either a black/silver zebra midge or olive biot midge in #20 or 22. Saw some absolute bruisers, but they were focused on the task at hand. No real big fish this time, but the past few weeks have yielded some very nice fish. The front moving thru could have given them lockjaw yesterday. Tomorrow or Monday should be good...
