You know this isn' t a tough man contest. You need waders I am sure some of us have old pairs around to donate.

"Right at 30 fish touched: 1 brown, and the rest bows and brookies. Biggest bow 17", biggest brook right at 13". Most of the bows were in the slot. No hatches early this AM, except there were working fish when we got in at 8A. First cast with a #8 Olive buggerpoon (idea stolen from a tarpon fly, cross between a clauser/bugger/and tarpon fly) got a brookie, and the next 14-15 fish. It slowed down some and then a micro caddis hatch came off around 12-1 and fired them up so that I could get another 14-15 fish on a couple of midge/caddis larvae patterns. Best fish on the buggerpoon(sorry, best name I can think of), and an intermediate sink tip line, 5x flouro, and Lefty's non-slip loop knot."

By brookies do you mean spotted brown trout? I have fished the clinch now for 20 year, and I have never heard of brookies being in it. I am not trying to correct you, I am just curious. I could definitely be wrong about this.

Burton,
Brook trout were stocked last fall in the Clinch. There was no water in the small streams to put the fish raised so they were stocked in the Clinch and Caney.

The above is the picture of a brookie caught on the Caney. They were about 4" on initial stock. Biggest one I have caught was 14". If you haven't been fishing the Clinch lately your missing out. They are brook trout and they are as dumb as all brook trout are and agressive to the dry as brookies are. This fall as last winter they will be in spawning colors and beautiful just as they are in the Smokies and Maine were I have fished for 20 years.

Now to date I haven't seen any Cutthroat or Bull trout, but Brookies yes!

Thank you for your feedback. That is awesome. I fish the clinch several times a week, but I don't pay attention to the updates on what is being stocked. I will have to start looking out for them.
