    I swear I saw a huge striper? roll just below the output at the powerhouse. Wooly buggers are the way to go this time of year for trout. I did well last weekend on buggers and dries.

    What's the best way to fish the Hiwassee? Park by the road? Raft? I don't have a drift boat or even a canoe! lol. I would have to rent any boating devices.

    You don't need a boat or float, depending on the water generation schedule. The Hiwassee is the easiest, most accessible trout water around. I personally have and seen reports of other people catching nice trout an virtually any color bugger, white, black, and brown are common. Someone caught a 13 pound brown 2 weekends ago....he looked like a "chucker" but I'm not sure how he was fishing.
