Default SoHo 3/7/09

Thought I'd share some photos from the South Holston this past weekend. My buddy and I got on the water about 8:30 or so. The fish were nymphing, taking most anything that resembled a midge or a bwo nymph. There were a lot of baetis nymphs in the water, and they were almost black, about size 18-20. A 19 would've been just right... see the fish vomit picture. We saw a few hatching off the top, but not worth tying on a dry. Fish of the day was a 16+ inch brown, caught by Ben in a run I hastily fished over. The weather was perfect, not too much wind. Got my first sunburn of the year and had a goodle time. Well worth the drive and the exhaustion - maybe the broken rod... I should also mention we were checked for licenses. Props to TWRA up there... It was nice to see regs posted and spawning habitat signs. How come I never get checked on the Clinch, though?

Rainbow- definitely not fresh off the truck.

Baetis, 1 scud, 1 midge, and some ?flying ants?

Ben and his stolen brown that taped out to about 16.5"

Hold it out towards the camera - adds 3 inches instantly!!

Really nice looking fish! What a great river that is. I attended several of the TWRA meetings up there when the regulations were being proposed and the people who live around that river really seem to take an active role in how it's managed. Large turnouts at both the meetings I attended. One of the issues that was brought up was lack of enforcement. I was floating it two days later and got checked by two officers in a johnboat. Guess they were listening!
