If you are throwing stripe plugs you may just get hooked up with a bruiser trout. Stripes below CH are not really a winter thing from my experiences- hope this helps and welcome to tndeer!

The stripers usually arrive in early summer, say June. They are seeking out the cooler waters of the Caney Fork River.

I did some research and found out that rockfish don't go all the way to the dam. They stay down the caney fork river, do you know any spots for trying for rockfish down river, an common spot that rockfish are caught. Thanks!!

They absolutely do go all the way to the dam but only in the summer months. I have yet to catch one there but striper fishing is something I'm just getting into so I'm not good yet. I know several guys who have caught some very large rockfish below that dam.

What he said:)

y=we went camping down there this weekend and one guy caught a 14 lbs rockfish but it was the only one i saw. i have fished that dam for years and you can get lucky and get one or so in the winter time but its hard. but they are definitly a few up there this time of year but not many.
