Default Caney Fork, March 12, 2006

I was able to get a couple more hours of fishing in today before it is back to college. There was finally a good time to wade the Caney Fork as they have been generating a lot lately. My dad decided to come along with me to take some pictures. Anytime he was nearby, the fishing was awful slow, I think it was the camera maybe . Anyway, I had a decent couple of hours. The fishing was a little slow but not bad. I had maybe 10 to 15 fish to hand with three being "good" fish as far as the Caney is concerned. The good ones were maybe 14 or 15 inches and very fat and healthy and had apparently been in the river awhile. The others were recent stockers for the most part. I was fishing my standard rig for the Caney which is a parachute adams for an indicator with a midge dropped behind. Strangely, 2 of the 3 good fish rose to the #14 parachute Adams. Now for some pictures. Me fishing a nice run
Here is another fisher out on the river 8-)

Finally, here is one of the better fish I caught today

It was good to be able to get out one last time before I had to hit the books again. I hope everyone else had a good weekend and was able to fish a little!

Can you tell me what the Caney Fork will be like in mid-May? *Is it better to drift-fish it? *Are there any local guide services available there?

Fishing on the Caney really depends on the generation schedule. You can wade just fine as long as they aren't generating. If they are, then the only way you can fish really is from a boat. I haven't really fished it on high water much. I'm guessing that throwing some streamers might entice some of the larger browns in the river if you float on high water. If the generators are not running, you will most likely find good fishing. About guides, I'm pretty sure that there are some guys that guide on that river but I'm not sure of names, maybe someone else can help there?

[i](he ain't that dadburn grumpy either)[i]

Mid may fishing in the caney is really good...I would suggest further down river than right at the dam unless you just want a lot of company. Give Grumpy a call and he can give you all the help and direction that you will need...
