muskies and stripers are the main draw this time of year on that part of the river.

the muskies are generally concentrated around the steam plant and bull run creek. i guess that's a bit downriver. i don't know exactly where rarity ridge is.

so it's downriver from melton hill? if so, disregard the muskies.

there are fish advisories on almost every body of water in the state.

God news is the fish should all be very heavy. In one year. 1956, There were 34 metric tons of mercury dumped a couple of miles UPSTREAM from where your grandparents bought. They took down all the signs that said "No Fishing, No water contact" that were in view of the subdivision, but Poplar Creek is one of the most heavily contaminated stream in Tennessee. If I am not mistaken, that subdivision also got a permit to dredge for a marina. that should really stir up the mercury bound in the sediments. I almost forgot, there are PCBs in there as well.

Having done research on that particular stretch of river, I won't even put my boat in it.

I bet that wasn't on the Rarity brochure!!!!!

Just like Rarity left out of their brochures around Tellico Lake that the land around the lake was stolen from the farmers for $265/acre by TVA in the 70's and 80", and then recently resold to build luxury homesites by the Rarity folks.

I keep dreaming that one day in the far off future, maybe our grandkids will blow up Tellico Dam and bring the Little Tennessee back.

All the discussion here about the Caney is absolute proof that a world-famous trout river like the Little T would be worth a thousand times as much to our state than the land development scheme on the banks of Tellico Lake.

that has always been a dream of mine too except I am the one lighting the fuse.

i was a very vocal opponent of the dam project in the 70's.
i still miss the 3 day float trips from Chilhowee Dam to Thurman's boat dock below Ft. Loudon Dam.

Thank you Jimmy Carter. One president I have NO respect for at all. Overturned the Wild and Scenic River Act along with Howard (Sell my people for a nickel) Baker.

What really stinks is that ol carp lips Carter tauts his "Habitat for Humanity" projects in the intercity (trying to get more Democrats to vote for the Democratic party{remember, 98% of these folks vote DEMOCRATIC}), and never helped build one home in the really poor areas around Tellico, that he stole from those folks. And the jerk has the gall to write about his fishing in Argentina for big browns.

i just wanna see tellico lake drained.


anyway, there is some great striper fishing on the clinch river from one end to the other. the best bait is live shad if you can get them. be prepared, there are some VERY big fish.

It always amazes me how many people I meet who would love to see the end of Tellico Lake. It would be BIG money for the State too - the return of the Little T would be a tourism draw like TWRA has never seen before.

One thing is for sure - if someone tried to build that godawful dam today, it would never get done.

I wonder if it's too much to dream of one day talking the state into taking it down? I doubt it could happen in our lifetimes but it's never too early to start asking.

Rem270,
Sorry about the diversion. There are many hard feelings over TVA and their sell off of stolen property to Rarity. You just pushed the wrong button mentioning that name to a bunch of outdoorsmen.

If you are in the area the Clinch River from Norris Dam all the way to the Clinton bridge holds a ton of trout. You don't have to be an expert to catch them. Lite line, salmon eggs, and a small split shot will do the trick. I almost always get my limit. Watch for rising water. Generally early in the morning before they start generating is when I go. You can access right at the [censored]. Oh yea, you will need some waders too.
