Default White bass are starting

Camped on corp land this weekend along a feeder stream that flows into lake allatoona with a friend of mine. The white bass are just starting. They were fairly plentiful in the lower part of the river, but non existant further upstream. They loved white clousers. Thats pretty much all I threw at them. I would say that they have to be one of the easiest fish to fly fish before. I let my friend try our my flyrod for a little and he landed two pretty quick. I landed probably an honest 30-40 over the weekend. Sorry, but no pics. Forgot my camera. I'll take some next time i go. Should be good for the next couple of weeks.

I love to fish for them too! The Stripers are starting their runs here also, there have been a few caught above Buggs Island lake in the last 2-3 weeks. I really need to get on the water, I haven't even been yet!

I've seen folks catching white bass on Fort Loudon in downtown Knoxville this week. Carp also seem to be on the move in that area as well. Start tying those cornbread flies!

I haven't seen any carp in the river yet, but they are everywhere around where the river runs into the lake.
Went back out today and it was even better. Some friends and I caught a bunch of fish.

I've never caught a bass on a fly rod. Hoping to change that this spring. Any pointers? Any advice on where to go locally? I live in Knoxville...

MUNDELE, If you want to catch a bass on a flyrod in Knoxville, fish all up and down Northshore in Farragut. Places include: Carl Cowen Park, and the Frisbee golf park.

Big Max-
Flies or hardware? bank or boat?
I used to chase them below cheatham dam on the cumberland. Fast action, hard fighting- what more could you want from a fish?

No kidding about catching not fishing! I haven't been able to get after them this week due to the rain. Oh well. I am a kid (15) myself and have gotten 3 friends so far to catch their first fly rod fish in the last few weeks. They eat anything that moves! I tied a fly that was a #8 hook with just a white marabou feather tied onto the shank. They killed it!

I work really close to there. What kind of lures do you recommend? Are you fishing near the banks or ?? Is there a time of day that works better than others?
