Question Advice on floating the Clinch

I was wondering if anyone on here would be willing to share some techniques for fly fishing while floating the clinch with a 2 generator flow. Typically I have only thrown rapalas on spin gear while floating but thought I might like to try drifting some nymphs the next time around.

Save your energy when it comes to throwing nymphs. I have tried every way possible and have never had any consistent success. You can pitch streamers and have some success.

Yeah, floating the Clinch on two-generators and fly-fishing for effect is very challenging.

You will need to throw heavy streamers. Some of my friends will fish a twin streamer for better effect since things are moving so fast...

Also look for the inside eddies(sp?) along the bends of the river for hot spots. I usually hug the bank and cast very close to the bank and let the current running it down the shore line. Line mending is not that big of an issue in this technique unless the line starts to curl or bunch.
