    Interesting! Are you having to throw heavy streamers for this type of action? I have never seen the S. Holston on a heavy generation. I bet it brings the big boys up for some feeding.

    Share some pics if you get a chance..(?) I wish I lived closer so that I could hit it right now.

    The clinch fished great today. With so much flow, I opted for spinning gear and jerkbaits and the browns were willing to play

    I bet that was a quick drift.

    I bet that was a challenging chore with such a current. I am glad you had fun and made the best of it. Also; glad you did not fall in and get swept away. I like your style. Mine is very similar. Go with the conditions you are dealt and make the best of it.

    Shawn, yes it wasn't easy dealing with that current but sure beats sitting at the house!
    Randy, good looking brown.
