Default Fishing the SOHO 10-11-08

Ben and I went to the South Holston on a warm day last sunday. We fished the weierdam early that morning and caught a few on the brown san juan worm and thread midge, but no good size. After leaving there we stopped by rivers way about 3 miles from webb bridge up stream around 1:30 and I hooked up with my biggest brown on the fly rod, it was 19inches. 3 casts before that fish i had a big brown 20+ hook up and break me off on a strong run down stream. 5 casts after the 19inch brown i caught my new personal best brown at 21inches...i caught all my fish on the san juan and thread midge...what a day! I love pre-spawn fishing on the SOHO!

Nice fish guys, the browns are really starting to show the spawning colors up there. I need to try a San Juan worm some time, never think to tie one on. You mentioned River's Way, last year I was told that it was only open to paying guests. Have they decided to open it to the public now? Nice water and fish in that area.

Thread midge is as simple as it sounds....size 20 hook and thread rapped around it....black for the thread midge and caught them on pink, red, dark brown, and light brown san juan worms.
