dang, I should've met you down there this morning. It's been a while since I've caught a 14"er.

Default Frank Fiss confession

This all makes sense from the Clinch River meeting the other night with TWRA. With all these great reports on the Caney, now I know why Frank Fiss (trout fishing biologist for TWRA) confessed to fishing more on "HIS home waters", the Caney. Hmm, maybe this is why the Caney is doing so well now, and others are not.

Regs for the Clinch, as other "heavily fished tailwaters", from Mr. Fiss's report on trout fishing would be appreciated

Plateua angler, do you wade thru the one hour pulse or does the water get too high?

I waded during the pulse but it must be done very carefully. You need to know the area you are wading. The current is very strong and staying upright is not a given if you wade very deep...

Default Caney question??

I have never fished the Caney, only crossed it driving to Nashville. Does this river have shoals and any fast water or is it pretty much flat smooth water. From the reports I've read, it sounds like most of it is smooth and most fish are sighted and then cast too. How does it compare to say the Watauga or S. Holston on low water? Just wondering.

It is flat water although there are some sections that get really shallow on low water. I've had to help my canoe along through a couple of spots before. You can sight fish if that is what you like to do or you can just cover the water. Both are very productive although if you are just covering water, it does help to know where the fish tend to be...

I have fished the Caney for 18 days in a row in rain, sleet, storms, and ferocious wind. Consistently producing hook ups on #8 white wooly buggers with the flash in them behind a 9' leader with 3' of same wt tippet. This setup works very well when the "pulse" arrives and after wards in the falling water. Add some split shot and cast a little upstrem for the bugger to get down and the current to swing it across for browns. Bows on top unweighted. Midge hatch coming off at low "tide" during the day.

I see you are using # 8 hooks. What length hook are you using. Short 3X or larger profile? I was at the Caney about 2 weeks ago and caught several bows on olive w.b. small to med. size. When I returned someone had replied to my blog about what to use at Caney. They said they were tearing up the fish on black w.b. I tried some black leach patterns, but no w. buggers. That was my first trip to Caney. I enjoyed fishing there. I hope to get back down there this spring. When I was at Caney I didn't notice any shad kill, so I didn't even through a white bugger.

I believe the shad kill has been over for awhile now, at least for the most part. The fish seem to still remember though and white is a good color...
