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.
