    RIP John

    Sad to say that John Thurman passed away this morning.
    I know he helped make a lot of our lives better and did a lot for the clinch river and its anglers.
    Will be missed.

    If its just a big brown you're after, i think you'd do just as well on the little river.
    If you just wanna try deep creek, like old tom said, you need to hike for a while.

    it gets a lot of silty run-off from gravel roads. Turns a deep blue-green color pretty often.
    Also gets quite low in the dry months.
    Doubt there's many fish, if any, you'd want to bother with.

    I probably would have looked at it and decided it was just a wet weather drainage.

    You'll be walking distance form the fly shop.
    They can sell you the right license & stamp. Buy some flies or something and they'll likely give you a pointer or 2 on where to go.

    Well, sort of.
    I don't think they've had stock on volumes 1 to 16 in several years.
    My wife usually gets me one every year for Christmas and they never have those.

    Guessing if we don't get significant rain very soon, we'll start hearing drought talk.

    I understand not allowing people on the lake during the work phases and draw downs, but the quote I posted states that "Brookfield has bought the lake". Not even sure how this is possible.
