    I have known guys who fish for them from boats, didn't know you could wade over there. If that is possible and you are looking for someone to go let me know. Let us know how it works out if you go.

    Oh, have to jab a little. I knew there were stripers there, thought the strippers were at the Mouse's ear or the Katch!

    Calling them strippers sure got my attention!!! I have no idea about stripers, but you can see all the strippers you want at Last Chance (30 beautiful ladies, 1 ugly one). It's on Alcoa Hwy, between Knoxville and Alcoa, won't need a boat to get there.

    Personally, that's the only reason I fish.....the strippers.

    Wow! Yes it could be fun in febuary! However I think this sport is enjoyed year round. A few tips for catching these species are as follows; Take lots of cash, preferably $1 dollar bills, and leave your atm card at home so you don't do anything stupid while your searching. I also have to second the wade opinion in regards to it would be along wade! You have certainly brought new meaning to wet a line and tight lines!

    Spell check is our friend! And I must add I'm speechless!

    On a more serious note, I have heard good things about fishing there and just down the road for skipjack herring! They are a fight on spin gear and I can't imagine catching one on a fly....Another great suggestion to make for skipjack is Melton Hill dam when the water warms up.....Go during generation and be prepared to do a lot of roll casting and mending!!! U might get lucky and land a trophy Striper ..

    Yea kinda like those ads that start off in big bold text that say SEX, just to get your attention- it worked
    Anyway yea I have fished over at the steam plant for Stipers (not with a fly rod though). There is an area that you can wade out to the left of the plant(facing it). Have had some luck in the past but it has been several year since I have done it. One word of advice, don't wear felt soled boots because the bottom is very muddy & you WILL fall in if have felt on!
