Default Clinch

Anyone been on the Clinch in the last couple days? What's working there right now? Any ideas or an outlook for this upcoming weekend (3/4 & 3/5)? Any info is appreciated. Thanks.

AG

Haven't been lately because of work related issues : just too much of it.
But as we're getting on the verge of some warmer weather and spring like temps Sulphurs are on the minds of most Clinch regulars - though I'll be some time before any real hatch to fish dry - the nymphs will becoming of size and so #16/18 phesant tails is a good place to start along with some scuds and olive midge patterns. Kinda the staple for the Clinch...and a good place to start. Zebra midge patterns and small pheasant tail midges are great droppers to throw into the mix.

I live in the mountains of Northern California, but often head out to TN for a week in the spring. Years ago I hit a couple of great Sulphur hatches on the Clinch, but recent hatches have been disappointing, so last year I didn't even bother.

Are the Sulphurs coming back on the Clinch? It's not as if I don't have other tailwaters and the Park to beat up on, but I was wondering how many quill body parachutes I should be tying for the upcoming trip...

Thanks! I'll be out in early May, and I'll definitely check in before then to see what's happening. It's OK if it bites tho -- it's not as if fishing the Park is a hardship, though I could do without all the traffic... 8-)

Not many sulfurs on lower end the past two-three years.

I fished the Clinch last week.... I was using a midge and caught one "very small", I had fish popping all around my line but only about 8-10 bites. It was very slow for all the other fishermen as well, I fished from 12:30-5:00 and they started hitting more around 5:00pm. Well hope that helps, I'm sure fishing will be a lot better now that it has warmed up a little. I heard it's fixing to get cold again, but should be relatively warm from here on out ! Have fun fishing, Spring is here !
God's Love and blessings to you, PHIL

Fished the Clinch Sunday afternoon and was presently surprised to see risers and to be able to fish drys again. There was a strong mig hatch all day. Hookups on the dry were spuratic but the nymph was consistantly catching fish. Also had alot of fun poppin fish with a new streamer, about an inch long rainbow trout with a silver conehead. I believe if this weather stays this warm the hatches/fishing on the clinch will start picking up.
