Default Re: Tellico Area Fishing?

I'm with buzzsaw, i love the Tellico area, mainly because it dosen't have the crowds.
I leave it along during the hunts, those guys spend more time listening to their radars & will run ya off the road if you're not careful. When there isn't any hunting going on, you think you're the only one there at times.
Oh yeh, use caution in setting up your camp, it's a pain, we usually break down every morning & load it up, i've talked to quite a few that came back to nothing.
If you do backcountry camping, the problem isn't quite as bad.

I arrived in Tellico Plains aroung 10 this morning. I stopped and fished the Tellico for about an hour before heading up to the Bald. As I was fishing, I heard something behind me rummaging around in the leaves. I turned around trying to catch a glimpse of whatever it was, and out of the bushes came a boar. It briskly walked right past me and alongside the river for about 50 yds, then turned up the slope and went back into the woods. A pack of dogs followed after about 15 minutes. Anyway, I didnt as well as I was hoping on the Tellico. I only caught one bow that was about 11". After that, I went up to the falls and hiked for about 35 minutes then began fishing. The water was much colder than I had expected it to be. I guess that was one of the reasons the fish seemed to be so inactive. None of the fish were rising. There were also several leaves in the stream. Fishing was pretty difficult, especially for a novice like myself.

Final Score: Bald River 1, Doghaircaddis 0

Everything's copacetic though. I was surrounded by some incredible scenery. Plus I got to see a splendid pig. What a day!

Darn fine report there DHC, it's not all about the fishing, sounds like a fine day in the outdoors to me.

That area is really beautiful. I always enjoy fishing there even when the catching is off. Thanks for the report!

I went grouse hunting WAY above Bald River on Saturday. I saw a hog with 1 dog chasing it. The actual hog hunt was on the other side of the area, about 20 miles away. Those dogs sure can run a hog can't they.
