I am coming back up to Knoxville and Chattanooga from Mississippi for work next week and was wondering which river should I fish. I have only fished the Hiwassee a few times but consider the Clinch my home river as I lived in Maryville for a couple of WONDERFUL years. I may be bringing my 14 year old son that loves to fly fish but is in the early learning stage and has never caught a trout on a fly rod, he can wear out the bream in local ponds but is dying to catch a bow or brown.
Any help on which river and what is hatching or better yet, what fly to use would be helpful. Please advise as I have already packed for the trip and need to start tying some flies.
Thanks in advance.
