I made it up there yesterday, but stupid me didn't check the generation schedule before I left. I am so used to them running the same schedule on Fridays that I expected the same yesterday. I got to my normal stomping grounds to find the water high. So we went up to Miller's Island, somewhere I don't really like to fish and haven't fished in over a year. I caught a decent bow on my second cast, and then let a couple get off before calling it a day. My activity was on a #20 bhpt, and I did see some BWO's coming off. I saw a couple other guys on the water, and never saw them catch anything either. By far my slowest day on the Clinch all year, but I think it was more mental than the fishing being tough.

I was just so aggravated at myself after getting there and realizing I couldn't fish my usual areas, that I was just not into it mentally.

So, the lesson here is to never expect TVA to run the same schedule as they normally do. Always check the schedule.
