I fished the Holston about 5 miles below Cherokee dam on Friday May 25th from 12-3 pm. I saw a few caddis hatching but not the level of bug activity that I am used to seeing this time of year. However, trout were rising somewhat frequently to eat something (caddis emergers or midges?). I fished a double nymph rig with a heavy nymph fished about a foot above an olive zebra midge and ended up doing really well. Caught about 10 trout with 5 pushing the 15" mark and all were Holston-fat. There was a mix of rainbows and browns (first browns I have caught on the river). Below is a shot of my best fish of the day. It was awesome.
