I use a 7 weight fly rod, fast sink tip line, White and Chartreuse Clouser minnow.

Best action I've had while able to keep track is 7 straight casts with a landed fish. Usually a break off ends the string.

The size of the jig head depends on the wind and current. I will use anything from 1/32 to 1/8 with a 1 to 2 inch white grub on 4lb test on a 5 foot ultra light rod. A 12 inch skipjack can be allot of fun.

I'm glad they still don't allow bank fishing. Imagine 5 boats and 50 or more people lining the banks.


So you are saying if you don't have a boat, you shouldn't deserve to fish? Is this the attitude I sense?

The real reason they closed the steam plant to bank fishing was because of all of the trash that was being left. TVA used 9/11 as the scapegoat.

Have you been to the steam plant? Are you one of the former bank fishermen? Nobody said they don't deserve to fish. I was saying that the fishing is better without all the bank fishermen.

Its a very simple equation that most fishermen know about.

Less pressure = better fishing

Makes sense seeing as you can still hunt the steam plant. The number of people fishing the bank got out of hand. It was always a mess. No one hauled out their garbage.
