I recently bought an Old Town canoe with a 3 hp moter and am planning to float the Clinch this spring. I have fished the Clinch for years but feel like I missing possibly the best part of the river since I mostly fish upstream of Millers Island. I hope to get past the Saturday crowds by floating into some good shoals and fish until the water rises and float to Clinton.
Does anyone have any recommendations regarding floating the Clinch in a canoe. Where is the best place to launch Millers Island or Peach Grove?
I will try to make this float during a pulsing schedule so I will be able to wade during minimal flows if the current is not to strong. Any advice would be apprecated.
