    Holston water temps

    Halloween day at lowest trout access point the water temp was 63 at mid day. Air temp was 60. I'm sure the water temp has gone back up to unacceptable levels since the weather turned warm after that...

    Fishing in the park with my best tailwater rod would make me nervous. If I break a tip I'm out of commission until I can get it fixed. Any expensive rod for that matter, although they all have...

    The downside to this years generation schedules on the Clinch ( for me as a wading only fisherman) have been access to only the Farthest downstream access point. Only on Sat and Sun, and only from...

    You are right about the Holston temps and trout. I think Buzz was suggesting poppers and streamers for smallmouth bass at the lower access areas that once held trout. When I tried the streamers and...

    Thanks for the insight. I was wondering about paddling upsteam to a spot than floating back to same access. Also I'm 6'2" and 250lbs so a stable platform is definitely needed.

    It would be nice if they changed the recreation schedule to allow for Wade fishermen one day and boaters the other day of the weekend. Maybe keep water off until 3:00 at least one day. Turning it...

    I spent all spring and summer (until about 3-4 weeks ago) wading the Holston way down river and had a lot of luck. Now the water temps are over 70 down there and the trout moved upstream. The main...

    Down to the Hwy 61 bridge. I'm sure trout go farther down but it's deep and different. Anyway TWRA requires a trout supplemental to the fishing liscences anywhere between the bridge and the dam.
