    Cool

    Try catching a trout out of said fishbowl......not as easy as if they were in a barrel.

    Yes there are plenty of fish in there and yes they are stocked, but they are not that easy to catch. It is tough wading and tough fishing. They have been caught and released so many times that they are very wary. I caught these on a nymph and streamer rig.

    For what it's worth it is pretty water, has huge fish, and is an easier wade for those who can't get in the rough country, additionally it offers the opportunity to catch the biggest trout of your life for $7 bucks versus 4-5 hundred in places like Blackhawk N. Ga, But here is the interesting part, Trout unlimted offers the Davidson as a top 100 stream, and it is the exact same thing so although i do not look at this strech as a challenge I think it offers a unique experience
    If it swims throw a fly at it!

    How do you fish the nymph and streamer rig?? Cast upstream and dead-drift or do you strip it in??

    I'm making my first trip to Cherokee this weekend and looking for tips.

    Ihave been fishing it dead drifted and got several fish that way, but the bigger fish have hit when at the end of the drift when I let it swing across good. I have been fishing a tunsten prince followed by a streamer i tied from just white bucktail and peacock herl with a red thread body. There are probably other patterns that work better(heard a muddler minnow does) but I can't tie those well yet.

    Oh I forgot, I went back today. The guy I went with caught 9, and I caught 5. He landed a 19 and a half inch, fat, hook jawed rainbow, and I had a brown that was considerably larger than that until I found out it wouldnt fit in the net. After a 200yd fight running downstream, I got it on top of the net, it was too big to go in, flopped off and ran me right around a rock never to be seen again. I know, I know....the one that fot away. Typical fisherman haha
