Post Clinch Report: May 05-07

Well, I fished the lower-end of the Clinch-Trout Bed Monday (61 Bridge Upward). The water was a bit stained from the rain. However, the temperature was optimal for Sulphur hatch and trout activity.


I caught more baby trout than I wanted, but at least they were hitting well. Basically, it was a fish on every other cast. One thing I noticed is they stayed away from all the traditional grey and blue winged flies most people have been boasting about. After examining some of the hatch in the water; I noticed the under body to have an slight orange appearance in the water. So, I went with my favorite color for flies and wore them out on the orange patterns.

I got tired of catching the little ones and I wanted to provoke some of the bigger fish in the deep pools. So, I tied a my weapon for the size fish (Mickey Finn and Dace). I actually lost one of the Mickey Finns due to the fish breaking the tippet. That was a good sized fish...

Well, the river is super muddy now and really moving. I suspect it to be up for a few days.

Date
Time (Eastern) Generators
5/7/2009
9am - midnight 2 or more
5/8/2009
midnight - 1am 2 or more

Not sure how this will affect the sulfur hatch.

Just wanted to share an update fellas since the fishing has been slow due to the excessive rain...

Here are some of the flies I was using that I could find a picture of....

Thanks for the report. At least somebody is out fishing.

I guess it is a good time for me to be unable to fish with the high water. Hopefully by the time I get back in town next week, they will have slowed down the generation schedule. I am off next Tues , Thurs & Fri, maybe one of those days will be fishable.

Expected releases on Saturday are down to 4,900 CFS from ~9,000 CFS.

Planning on hitting the Holston tomorrow afternoon. It appears to be the only fishable tailwater tomorrow. Even South Holston is running 1 generator for 24 hours tomorrow.
