Nice shots.
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.



I was up there Thursday afternoon. They were burping one hour for every six hours. I put in at Betty's and motored up almost to Happy and floated back down. I didn't even fish out of the boat, just got out and waded when it looked good. I had to drag once and banged the prop a couple of other times, but no problems otherwise. I would imagine a jon boat might be a little heavier, ride deeper, and hit bottom more often.

Fishing was average. I caught maybe 30 with most being stockers with a few decent browns in there. The big brookie was my highlight. I struggled for a while until I found something they would eat. PM me and I'll tell you.

Good luck!

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






So says the guy who doesn't know yet what marriage and kids do to a man's finances.

I'm writing checks this month for an architect, a wedding, and a honeymoon. It is more than I make in a year. And that's before I even start on the addition to my house. I'm starting to get an inkling...

Hey, I haven't seen you on the carp thread. Have you manned up yet, or is the shoulder too much to even try it.?

I don't even have a number yet. I'm making slow progress in physical therapy. I am hoping maybe by the end of the month I'll be able to sign up and squeeze in one day, just so I can put a fish on the board and not miss out entirely. At least that way I could make the banquet.
