I actually bought mine as a refurb. 2 years ago about this time to take to Idaho on a fishing trip. $175 off eBay. Knock on wood, no problems.

It is great having a digital camera around. Back in the late 80's and early 90's when the Clinch was producing 18-22" fish about every 10-15 you caught, I waded with an old SLR, a Pentax ME Super.

Best of luck with your upcoming hanging...uh, I mean wedding.

Great pictures from both of you!

I'm old-fashioned and hate the screens on the digitals. I'm looking for a fairly reasonably priced point and shoot digital with an optic viewfinder. So far the only ones I have found are Canon Powershots. Are there any more options out there?

SCN,

Go ahead and get the Canon EOS. You can work it in automatic and it does everything for you like a point and shoot. You can then buy additional lenses for those far away shots. i love mine.

I think that may be more than I want to put in one. And, I suspect if I got it my daughter would "appropriate" it very quickly. She has been wanting one for a while. I'll see what sort of deals ebay might have.

Look for me too. I need a great deal on an SLR and a couple nice lenses. I'll probably be able to afford it in 2020. \:D

It seemed a little murky, and the pictures showed that. It was really nice, though.
If I submit to the TARP program, it will be for redhorses and suckers and other trash fish. \:D


i kinda meant when u can see the river bottom goin up river at shallow spots its clearer \:D . that false turnover the centerhill had goin when they were dumpin all that water for so long has messed things up. about a month ago i read the temp below the dam at 61,spewing out tarnished water at all ends.
i kinda like merky rustic green water, cause the fish cant see you.
what do you think about them waterproof camera shells, the ones that cover your existing dry camera?
i wonder why twra has no tarp program for trash fish and bait \:D

Is the generation schedule back to where wade fishing is safe?

Have you got your bags packed? If memory serves you have about a week left before the big day.


Yeah, I wet waded all day, and it was nice. It was even tough to motor upstream because it was so shallow.

Yup, my funeral (uh, nuptials) is in 8 days.


Gil, when were you there and how late after generation were you?

I'm having a "forced vacation" day on Monday, so I thought I'd take the jon boat up there and see how it works. If I end up spending the day dragging it over the shallow spots, so be it.

I stopped there Tuesday afternoon on my way to Greeneville on business. Fished Happy Hollow. It was about 1 pm and had basic 1 generator level. Didn't do anything on nymphs, so I switched to a sink tip line and a large white WB. Caught a rainbow and a brookie about like yours (rod butt to front end of handle) in the first 5 minutes. Then I had about 6 trout, some bigger, chase the streamer for several yards but not actually hit it. Fun watching them chase it, though.

Thunderstorms on Wed and Thursday on Paint Creek and the Nolichucky spoiled that fishing.
