    Post Clinch River [Report]

    Fished the Clinch Wednesday from 11-6. The day started off very muggy with high humidity and then I was hit with two-quick and heavy showers. Not a good day to leave the rain jacket at home.

    When I hit the river - there was heavy bird activity on the surface. There was a pretty good hatch coming off the bottom and the fish were feeding heavy behind the shoals.

    Caught about 20 fish in the 12-14" range and one Perch.

    Sounds like you had a good day as well. We fished CWF from 6:30AM to 11:00AM. We caught well into the 30's each. Several in the upper end of the slot range. Should have the pictures later this evening. Mostly used the BHPT #16. We did get a few on large streamers later in the morning. Nice to see the Clinch is still good after all the rain and high flows.

    Thanks guys, guess the solitude was too much to ask for this year. Would have been a nice change of pace from years past, but as always it never lasts...

    Man, Perch in the Clinch great! They are the best eating out there. We have a similar species in Europe and man they are goooood!

    P.S. caught one several years ago on Hiwassee.

    Seriously doubt that, Yellow Perch (perca flavescens) is an introduced species in most of the southeast. If you mean a very long time I buy that but not since the beginning of time in literal sense.

    Means of Introduction: The yellow perch has been introduced into Alabama (Smith-Vaniz 1968; Boschung 1992; Mettee et al. 1996); Arizona (O'Malley 1920; Minckley 1973); Arkansas (O'Malley 1920); California (Smith 1896; Shebley 1917; Neale 1931; Moyle 1976a; Dill and Cordone 1997); Colorado (O'Malley 1919, 1920; Ellis 1974; Tyus et al. 1982; Propst and Carlson 1986); Connecticut (Johnson 1915; O'Malley 1919, 1920); Florida (Kilby et al. 1959; Yerger 1977; Lee et al. 1980 et seq.); Georgia (Dahlberg and Scott 1971a, 1971b; Yerger 1977); Idaho (Linder 1963; Idaho Fish and Game 1990); Illinois (Bowers 1906; Johnson 1915; O'Malley 1919, 1920; Smith 1979; Burr and Page 1986); Indiana (Bowers 1906; Johnson 1915; O'Malley 1919, 1920; Nelson and Gerking 196; Iowa (Titcomb 1904; Bowers 1906; Johnson 1915; O'Malley 1919; O'Malley 1920); Kansas (O'Malley 1919; Cross 1967; Cross et al. 1986); Kentucky (Johnson 1915; O'Malley 1919, 1920; Burr and Warren 1986); Maine (O'Malley 1920); Maryland (Bowers 1906; Johnson 1915; O'Malley 1919, 1920; Lee et al. 1976); Massachusetts (Bowers 1906; Johnson 1915; O'Malley 1919, 1920); Minnesota (O'Malley 1919; Johnson 1915); Mississippi (Bowers 1905; O'Malley 1919; Mettee et al. 1996); Missouri (Johnson 1915; O'Malley 1919, 1920; Pflieger 1997); Montana (Brown 1971; Cross et al. 1986; Whitmore 1997); Nebraska (Smith 1896; O'Malley 1919; Lee et al. 1980 et seq.; Cross et al. 1986); Nevada (Miller and Alcorn 1946; La Rivers 1962; Deacon and Williams 1984; Insider Viewpoint 2001); New Jersey (Johnson 1915; O'Malley 1919); New Mexico (Johnson 1915; Sublette et al. 1990); New York (Bean 1903; Bowers 1906; Johnson 1915; O'Malley 1920); North Carolina (Johnson 1915; O'Malley 1919; Menhinick 1991; Jenkins and Burkhead 1994); North Dakota (Titcomb 1904; Johnson 1915; O'Malley 1919, 1920); Ohio (Trautman 1981; Burr and Page 1986; Hocutt et al. 1986); Oklahoma (Johnson 1915; O'Malley 1919, 1920; Hall 1956; Miller and Robison 1973); Oregon (Lampman 1946; Bond 1994); Pennsylvania (Johnson 1915; O'Malley 1919, 1920); South Carolina (Johnson 1915; Dahlberg and Scott 1971a); South Dakota (Johnson 1915; O'Malley 1920; Bailey and Allum 1962); Tennessee (Lee et al. 1980 et seq.; Starnes and Etnier 1986; Ryon and Loar 1988; Etnier and Starnes 1993; Tilmant 1999); Texas (Hubbs et al. 1991); Utah (Sigler and Miller 1963; Tyus et al. 1982); Vermont (Bowers 1906; Johnson 1915; O'Malley 1919, 1920); Virginia (Bowers 1906; Johnson 1915; O'Malley 1919, 1920; Hocutt et al. 1986; Jenkins and Burkhead 1994); Washington (Smith 1896; Johnson 1915; Chapman 1942; Lampman 1946; Gray and Dauble 1977; Wydoski and Whitney 1979; Tilmant 1999); West Virginia (Hocutt et al. 1986; Stauffer et al. 1995); and Wyoming (Baxter and Simon 1970; Hubert 1994; Tilmant 1999).
