    Default westward ho!!

    Seeing s my son and I are six hours away from the smokies, does anyone have any info on trout waters that are a little closer to the middle of tennessee? We have some put and take trout waters in far western tn, but would like to find new waters somewhere closer to home! Thanks for the input!! Flyguys

    The Caney Fork River, which is the tailwater below Center Hill Dam in the Cookeville area and the Elk River, which is the tailwater below Tims Ford Dam in the Winchester area are viable options. Also, the Obey River below Dale Hollow Lake and the Duck River are other possibilities.

    Cumberland tailwater in Kentucky might be a good choice. If you are in far far western Tennessee, the Spring River in Arkansas is close and one of my favorites.

    Speaking of the Cumberland --- Anyone fished it lately? I don't hear much about it anymore.
