    Default Clinch River Report:

    The fish were hopping today on the Clinch. We caught about 15 decent fish and missed about the same number.

    Caught one 22" Brown....


    -Bro's Fish

    *Did have one miss-hap! Hit the rocks with the motor again and had to paddle back 3 hours.
    Does anyone have an idea with the motor when you hit a rock and the crank is hard to turn afterwards...? Replaced the shear pin, but it seems like something is binding. It did this once before and I had to completely rebuild the motor...

    I will share the fly we were catching these on if you can help...? Nah, would share to the regulars anyway... I would appreciate any thoughts - good or bad...

    Sounds like you've bent something in the lower unit, meaning it will have to be rebuilt.

    Nice brown! Looks like the Clinch is fishing well...

    Fished the Clinch Friday and Monday.

    The fishing a was a little slow Friday with water temp around 44. I caught 10.

    Monday, with the sun turned them on. We ended up with about 30 and about 10 decent fish. However, most of the catch was just average in size... I will attach a few pics...

    Killing them on DACE and Mickey Finns...

    Made it out to the clinch yesterday afternoon- fish were poppin up top although reluctant to take anything I was offering in the flats- however, a dropper rig with smaller stripper midges, anatomy, or pt were gettin the job done.

    Clinch fished well above the Weir yesterday (4/2). Caught several decent rainbows, one 20 inch. Beautiful looking fish, good to see vegatation and bugs back in abundance on that part of the river!

    Default Clinch Friday

    Did my time on the Clinch today above the weir. The wind was up and kept the visible surface activity down. Fishing was almost not fun. Caught a few small ones and lost a couple of decent fish. Seemed to like a red butt soft hackle. Monk
