Post Caney Fork

I was thinking about heading to the Caney on Saturday and was wondering how it is fishing and what is working. So if you think you may be able to help I would greatly appreciate it.

I fished the Caney last Friday for a few hours and had a great time. When I arrived, the fog was thick, it was still dark, and the bait-chunkers hadn't shown up yet. I started with a #12 Olive Wolly Bugger and caught a nice 'bow on the first cast. As the sun started coming up I switched to a black midge and picked up a few more. They were pulsing the river every 4 hours or so, which made the fishing even better (I think). Good luck! Augie

Does the Caney fish better by the dam, Happy Hollow or the I40 rest area? I've stopped at the rest area a couple of time and been shut out. I saw about 20-30 fish actively feeding below the surface when I arrived and pitched all manner of nymphs and midges including a #16 BH black/copper zebra midge (is a #16 too large?). I fished while the water was low and while it was rising, but could not tell much of a difference.

I know I wasn't scaring them off, because I watched them feeding even after throwing the wrong things right by them. I was using 6x tippet and doing a pretty good job of line mgmt, but no takes...any ideas? I have fairly decent success in the Mtns and on the Hiwassee, but no luck on the Caney.

Grumpy,
Is that a nymph or a dry?
Thanks,

Default Floating the Caney

Hi All,
Planning on hitting the Caney for the first time Saturday. Any advice about take the canoe down? Good takeouts points, shuttles? Planning on paddling to the riffles and tailouts and wade fishing them. May take the streamer rod as well.
Thanks,
John

It is a larvae, a small nymph will be close.
