    Today we hit up a super secret tailwater in Clinton. Used a super secret access near a worship and detention center. Caught two rainbows between the two of us, lost a couple more. Super secret flies called zebra midge and pheasant tail caught the trout

    Looks like an eater to me. Baked, fried, or grilled?

    Did you get a water temp at that super secret location by chance? 🤔

    I set him free, even got some underwater release video with the new otter box. My filming skills could use a little work though. Didn't proper measure the water temp but it felt almost warm enough to swim in

    Yeah that's how it feels up high as well. 62 by my fishpond gage one evening last week.

    Dang. I guess Norris lake is currently the same temp on the surface as it is on the bottom. I did see a huge amount of Buffalo, I hate those things

    Yeah man, those things are pretty nasty. I accidentally caught one in my solo canoe a few years ago and it slimed up half the floor... and stunk for ages no matter what I cleaned it with.

    The lake has not turned over yet. I thought it had; but, my co-worker dived the lake a week ago and noted there are still active thermoclines. He is diving it again next weekend and going to give me some readings at different branches/depths of the lake.

    Now that's some "in depth" research. See what I did there?

    The surface will have to get quite a bit colder for that to happen correct? It'll take more than just nights in the 40's to get that job done. Last couple years I can remember having water temps around 60ish plus on thanksgiving.
