    Default shad kill

    I had heard about one happening on Cherokee lake last week. I went down to the holston sun morning to get a couple hours in before the rain arrived. The launch and the banks around it were covered.

    Man that is amazing! If you do not mind me asking which ramp is that. I was at Clift Ln Friday and seen a bunch there as well.

    I was at nances. Wasn't much action, must have been like thanksgiving to them.

    Never been to cliff ramp. What species might one find down that way?

    I do not think that trout go down that far but I know you can catch smallmouth as I have seen people catching them there. I for one have never fished there I just happen to work in that area and sometimes eat my lunch there. There is a small ramp that is in rough shape but looks to be a good area to wade.

    I have caught plenty of trout down around Nance's Ferry in years past. Usually only fish it from December through April for trout though.

    Oh I am sorry I was refering to Clift Ln ramp. The previous post had ask what species do you catch there and that is what I was answering. Sorry for the confusion.

    I knew what was what

    Chem, I keep a similar schedule on the holston. Glad I'm not that crazy then. I am usually paddling so if you see the ugliest canoe in east tennessee (red, painted green, beaten back to red) say hello. I usually give everyone else plenty of room so you may have to shout
