    Default Clinch Report/Success 2-26

    I Fished the Clinch today from 1:30 until 5. I had great success below the weir dam and ended up catching 30-40 fish. All of the fish caught were on a #18 zebra midge. The wind was blowing 15 to 20 mph which helped me stay hidden from the fish. Most of the fish I caught were surprisingly in the 14 to 21 inch slot. I also caugh my biggest clinch rainbow so far that measured 22 inches. Of course when I lifted it out of the net to take a pic...It floped out and sluggishly swam away. GO FIGURE.

    I left my digital camera at home but managed to take some pretty nice pics on my cellphone. Enjoy!

    Nice report Troutslayer.

    I agree that the Clinch has been really random so far this early season. I really wanted to get out there today, but thought I would be a good son and help my dad demo the old barn. This Friday I plan to be out there, well that is if TVA gives me a decent schedule to work with.

    small world

    i was out there today caught a few on a #20 cream with gold ribbing midge 1.5-2 fet below my indicator at the bottom of millers island. Missed a bunch more...the smaller hooks are harder to set i guess

    my B-day is in 4 days on the 2nd

    trout slayer what kinda midge were u using?

    i have been thinking alot about color latley and eveyone has a fav. i heard purple and gold from a guy today as he hooked a nice brown as we spoke..also i have had my best days with red and gold ribbing and again with black with red ribbing.....does it really matter?

    i know i never even got bumped on a purple or black and silver or a burnt yellow today
    there is a reason they dont call it "catching"
