    Post Clinch Report [October 2012]

    The Clinch has been fishing its typical Fall pattern. The water has started to change color and temperature. The bug* activity has narrowed to midges, craneflies, scuds, & an occasional sulphur. *(Not Exclusive)

    Upper Tailwater:
    Surface Water Temperature: 52-56 by 2 PM
    (Latest Measurement)
    Color: Slate-Grey

    • One of the best patterns I have fished is a #20 olive midge, black thorax, brown-olive beads.
    • The most effective patterns seem to have a trigger effect or something in them to help them stand out in the water color.

    Lower Tailwater:
    Surface Water Temperature: 55-62 by 3 PM
    (Latest Measurement)

    Color: Slate-Grey


    • Fishing has been slow for me on the lower end. I am just averaging a handful of fish each trip. Also; the quality of fish is down and mostly rainbow.
    • Most fish were taken on soft hackles.
    • Midge emergers and comparaduns have produced at pool-tail-outs in certain areas.

    I hope others can post to share their reports and information in hope that we can help each other have a better experience.

    *Safety Note: Be extra careful wading on rocks. Some of the vegetation has started to die and the surfaces are becoming super slick.
