I like the clinch and fish it often, but its been below par last few years...it tough to beat the South Holston on any given day and worth the drive....the Holston below Cherokee has the potential to take the title if it only had the decent temps year round...

Coming from Kentucky I have to go with the Cumberland. However, its big water and better suited to floating rather than wading.

I'll take the Caney Fork. It's really pretty in some areas and has a lot of fishable areas a good distance from the dam. The generation schedule is tough sometimes though.

You East TN boys (was raised one myself) need to give it a shot sometime.

Take care.
