Default FB: Clinch River-Information Page

I created a Clinch River Information Page for those that are interested in checking it out. Also; there is a link to the Clinch River Lost and Found Page in the notes section. Please feel free to post your pictures, information, etc. that you would like to share and help others in regards to the Clinch River. I am not trying to post any honey hole information. Just basic information to help others enjoy and to illustrate how vital the Clinch is/can be economically....etc...

Nah; I just wanted to create a general information page about the Clinch Tailwater. My intent was to share facility information and safety tips. Also; I wanted to share and allow others to share their pictures. My hope is that it builds a substantial "Like" and Friend Base over time. That way; it could be used as a supportive credit in illustrating the Clinch's Recreational Resources for future issues that may detract from them.

Went up to the Clinch about an hour before sunset yesterday. Hooked up with 2 fish but lost them both...so I only shared sunset pics.

On a side note, I was using a sulphur and there were rises everywhere, but not too many takes. Is it too late in the season for sulphurs? What is another good dry fly?

Nice pictures William! Thanks for sharing them. I am a big dry fly fan as well. It is super challenging to fish them on the Clinch. However; I the sulphurs are still coming off sporadically at times. I especially love to throw dries at Sunset to Dusk.

Some tips:
  1. use Gink Wet to coat your tippet about 10" to your fly. Do not get on the fly. I just take the cap off and slide the tip around the pointed tip to coat it.
  2. Then; apply Gink Dry-Gel to your dry fly.
  3. Apply a desiccant powder after that to keep it floating once it starts to lose its buoyancy. Or you can just squeeze it in your dry fly patch.
Fish it with short reach casts to a rise and twitch it to induce strikes.

I have seen Shawn do "the twitch thing" that defies all conventional wisdom & personal experience in terms of fishing mayfly dries... and he induces crazy strikes regularly.

On the Clinch he is the TROUT COMMANDER.

Thanks for the praise Corbo. I have my off days as well on the Clinch.

Some friends and I have doing quite well on sulphur-comparaduns fished to a rise. Size 14, wet tippet and dry fly fished with slight twitch or bump. The most effective areas have been at the bottom of pools in the tailout sections.

Also; I added tons of new pictures to the Clinch-Facebook Page.
