Default Holston Fishing

I noticed that the water will be off for a few hours on the Holston today, anyone been over there, if so how are the fish acting?? Also, they are turning on the water for an hour at 4 or 5 i can't remember, but if I fish at Nances Ferry will that affect me??

Hydropsyche. They are running 2 generators starting at 10:00AM. That will put high water down at Nances Ferry at about 2;00-2:30PM. You'll need to fish there before that time, or go up to the area below the dam after about 1:00pm. Be careful and goodluck.

Caddis larvae. Probably incased in a tiny pebble hut?

The Holston is full of them. Warmer water, and chocked full of nutrients. The Holston is a great place for LaFontaine emergers, and Deer or Elk hair caddis dries. The one thing is that the nymphs are chartuese to dark green, but the adult bodies are tan to gray.

Tight lines and screaming reels,

or Hydropsychid to be more correct, Hydropsychidae is a large family of caddis that spin webs in crevices and on rocks and catch food floating on the current in them. Those green ones are usually of the genus Cheumatopsyche if i am not mistaking. They can be pretty prolific. Thanks for the replies guys, i'll have to get up there and fish some ehc's to those fish.

cheers
