This is a true story to lift anyone's spirit. About five or six years ago, a friend of mine and I went up to the mouth of Buck Fork to fish. We were the only ones on the stream. For all of you who know how rough that terrain is, you will enjoy this. After fishing at the mouth and for a short stretch down we decided to hike back down to the turnaround. About halfway down we ran in to this guy. He had an old nice Shakespeare Wonderrod and to top it off an artificial leg of some sort. I still can't believe he had made it up this far. There's no real trail and most people walk the creek bed. You all know how hard it is with two good legs to hike the streambead, let alone with one fake leg. Anyway, I will never forget that day as it taught me that if there's a will there's a way kind of thing.

I pasted a link to the TWRA map of Holston Tailwater. The Holston fishes well in winter, midges will be the major hatches until April-May when the caddis start coming off. You need to access Nances Ferry from the Blaine area. A delorme atlas is the best way to navigate around the backcoutry roads. Never tried mapquest, but if you have a delorme you shouldn't have any trouble getting around.
