I decided to fish several places this weekend.
On Saturday I took my boat up Abramís Creek up to where the stream meets the lake. Pretty much as far as you can go with a boat. I can sometimes in the spring do ok here but I guess the summer is out. The water was super low and hot. I managed to hook up 3 suckers on nymphs.
I decided to practice with my new 8wt and some poppers for bass all the way back to the lake. No luck. But that is ok because I was mostly practicing my casting for my up coming Steelhead and Salmon run in New York in about 6 weeks.
Next I spent an hour trolling spoons in Chilhowee Lake. I didnít get a bite. I did manage to see a huge Brown jump several times for a mayfly. But after a few times he disappeared.
On Sunday I woke up early and headed over to the West prong of the Little Pigeon. On the way up I stopped at a few spots on Little River. I managed a hookup with a very big trout but he got off after 1 or 2 seconds. I know he was large because I saw his flash as he took the nymph.
When I got to the West prong near Chimneys I noticed the water was really low and fishing was real tough. I managed 2 small brooks and 1 8Ē rainbow in a 3 hour period.
After the 3 hours I decided to get some beer and watch the NASCAR race. This was the highlight of my weekend. LOL
Sorry for the boring report. I just figured I would let you all know.
