fished from bettys to stonewall , saw lots of fish just not hungry ones.boated 2 bows 16" and 1 14" ,lost one brown looked to be around 18".saw more people than ever! counted 40+ cars at bettys and more than 50 at happy hollow.guess the word is truly out! saw a fish not far from stonewall headed upstream at least 48" long. had a long nose like an alligator gar. couple of kayakers said they saw it to and they thought it was a spoonbill catfish. anybody else see it? didnt think spoonbills were in that river.how did you fair shoreman? was that you gil in the riverhawk going upstream with 2 others in the boat? if so did the flies do anybetter than the spinning gear? that was my slowest day in a long time. I credit it to the moon and the 500+ people on the water

Hey, waterman. I was out there in a Riverhawk but with only one other guy and upstream from Bettys. Man, I have turned into a river snob. I'm saying it out loud - "I will never fish the Caney upriver in summer on a weekend again!" I was shocked at how crowded it was, and I really couldn't enjoy myself. It was just so stressful constantly weaving in and out of boats, swimmers, and waders. This is getting out of hand!

We caught a bunch of fish but nothing big at all. My buddy thought we might have caught 100, but that's probably only if you add the fisherman's customary 20% tip. ;\) We caught 4 in the 14-inch range. Most of the rest were around 10 inches. Even though we caught fish, I didn't even enjoy it - just too stressful.

What you saw was likely a paddlefish. We saw one below Happy Hollow yesterday, a very cool sight. I saw what I think was my first 30-inch trout sighting yesterday, too. Bout peed in my pants. I could almost hear him saying, "Fellas, I've seen thousands of baits, and y'all are going to have to do alot better than that crappy fly!" \:D

Next time, if you think it's me, say howdy.

Pics. of my buddy with a small brown and the "canoe hatch."

I'm not going until Fall and/or Winter. Too much madness going on right now.

I got in on this Caney thing at the wrong time. I developed an interest, made a few wading trips, bought a boat, and then BAM...the river's suddenly more famous than usual.

Yep and the more detailed you guys make your caney reports the more people you can expect to see. I find the internet fishing thing humorous. I know guys who wont tell you anything other than if thhey caught fish and get them on a PC and they cant shut the heyal up. Thats one reason I love Michigan-sportsman.com as they delete any fishing report that gives specfic locations out.

With all due respect to you and others with that mentality...
I think you already know this about me, but I couldn't disagree with you more. Michigan Sportsman can kiss my red azz. Sounds like a great soap opera chatroom, but one of the most important virtues of this site is the free exchange of helpful information.

How are these people that haven't done it supposed to learn unless someone helps them. That's why I post flies, recipes, photos, and reports. I feel like it's my job to help folks after all the mentors that had pity on this dumb shmuck.

I will never understand it. If someone tells me a secret fly or place, I will never reveal their secret. If it's my pattern or my honey-hole, it's none of anybody's business who I tell.

Again, Troy, with all due respect, this is the topic that makes me crazy!

By paying the great troy basso, he is the only ethically acceptable means of learning to fish, of course.

I agree with you gil....only hope of getting people to respect a resource also.....

Gil we have known each other a very long time and I respect your views this topic and wont debate them as I know how I feel and you and I will never agree on this topic. I am simply stating when you give away detailed information,VIA THE INTERNET, its not only helping the person your intending but also the other millions who read it as well. Person to person is a horse of a different color I would tell you where,when, and what fly I was using but I would never post all that on the web.
To clarify I was not stating the origional poster nor gil had given out to much info on this thread. I had read 5 threads on three boards tonight about the crowded river conditions. I know its not only the ease of finding information that makes it crowded but it is a big contributor for sure.
Of course I realize the price of fuel, and other economic trends have caused people, non anglers, to seek out things closer to home and that has had a profound effect on the river as well.
I will say the bikini hatches that have become more prolific as of late are not all that bad of a side effect.

It's always nice helping out folks you know.

I guess I don't mind helping out folks I don't know either. For me, it's just an extension of all those people that had never met me but stopped to give me the fly that was working that day or an impromptu casting lesson. I've got some pretty good friends that I met because one of us decided to help the other on the river.

I've also had lots of PMs from tndeerfolks I've never met wanting help or wanting to help me right back.
Life's too short, my friend. You will never post the info., and I always will. Evens out, I guess.
I don't blame you for not debating it. Even a master debater like you would lose this argument. \:D

There is a new canoe rental place that seems to be advertising hardcore as well - http://www.canoethecaney.com. They have billboards up and everything. They seem to be intent on turning the Caney into a high-volume float destination similar to the Ocoee.

There has definitely been a huge increase in "newbie" paddlers thanks to this operation. I have seen three canoes slam anchored boats and one hit a guy wading in a run on Saturday - I am 99% sure all were canoes from this operation because of the numbers on the ends.

I also saw a couple girls in one of the numbered canoes paddle past the Smith Fork on Sunday. I told them I thought they overshot their takeout but they didn't want to listen to me. They said they were on a 9-mile float from the dam, and I told them that sounded like Betty's Island and they'd better turn back. They said "Nope, that's not the name of the takeout he told us," and kept going. I hope they liked Carthage.

If this venture is successful, we're just seeing the tip of the iceberg on the size - and stupidity - of the crowds that we'll be getting on the Caney. I'd suggest that we'd better start thinking about ways to get a grip on this - maybe permitting for canoe rentals and caps on the number of trips they can run per day? Otherwise, this is going to get way out of hand.

Yeah, I saw the big Canoe the Caney bus when I took out at Happy. They had about 50 canoes there. They were parked and blocking the ramp. Admittedly, they nicely scurried to move when I asked. I'm just not sure what can be done. They have as much right to the river as the fishermen. Only thing is, fishermen don't mess up canoeing, but canoers can sure mess up fishing.

Most of the canoers showed some courteous awareness of others, but the oddballs ruined it for everyone. Why do some float right through where you are fishing when they could easily go around? Why do some purposely slam their paddles as hard as they can against the water. Why do some throw rocks near the fishermen? And my favorite...what were the morons doing throwing fireworks in the water? Could have easily killed fish. BTW, this got the attention of enforcement, but they never got caught.

Those canoer girls may well be to the Gulf of Mexico by now!

Brian is right. The new outfit is doing a big group business both in canoes and kayaks. However, weekdays are still not bad. I quit fishing anywhere on weekends a long time ago.

The answer to questions 1, 2, and 3 is, "Because they don't know any better." I'm not sure about the fireworks. I'll chalk that up to "There are a-holes in every crowd."

True dat. I was just trying to help them with my questions about "Where did you put in and where are you supposed to take out," but I think maybe they were reluctant to give too much information to a stranger out in the wilderness. I could have been some pervert. Oh, wait - actually... \:\)

Anyway, Gil, keep in mind that you and I are subsidizing this operation. Our license dollars go to maintain those ramps at Happy Hollow and Betty's Island, which this business is using to drop canoes all day long at $75 a pop. What are they giving back?

Fishing weekdays avoids the crowds, but not all of us have that option.

I posted a rant on this at another forum I frequent. I'm interested to see the responses.

Something that blew my mind a few years ago was a fishing raft trip down the New River in WV. I actually went several times. The river was loaded with party rafts and kayakers. They were jumping in the river, slapping paddles and having a big time.

And we caught smallmouth, big smallmouth out the whazoo. I then into the same thing on the Current River in MO. On that trip, I swear, two women-early 20's came floating by on inner tubes and each had two six packs dragging behind them. Oh, they were also topless. I have never cast so poorly in my life. My first cast actually caught one of the tubes. The second cast caught the other. Man was my aim off. And after all that, it was warm Milwaukee's Best Light.

I'll help anyone that appears to need it.more than once I've stopped to help someone in need. would split my lunch and give what few pointers I have to friendly face on the river if they needed it. guess in michigan you would hide your fish so no one would no what your catchin huh?

Nope if you would read I said the INTERNET not the river. I have given away more flies to fisherman on the river and gotten people started in this sport. I simply stated that the internet is a medium that gives people a false comfort. Sure I would gladly tell you anything about the river you needed but if I post it there are, and Doublelung can verify, four readers to every registered member. That said I tell you and four people about a pattern thats catching big fish. You probably would be respectful and not share it but what about the other four? If they only tell one person each now there are ten of us. The caney is not the Madison or Yellowstone in that pressure will damage the fisherie. Now if my uptight yankee arse ever meets your friendly hillbilly behind I would share a cold beer and a samich while we talk fishing.
The sharing of information is a funny thing. Its a tradition as old as the sport yet its also the proverbial double edged sword when you do it on a forum.
All that said how many deer and turkey hunters just give away their good spots on the web? Funny how a pocket of land that you know holds a big deer is ok to keep to yourself.

I totally get the point. Internet is different than your friends. Internet is even different than strangers you meet on the water and help out. Posting for the world to see is helping folks that I will never even know about, and they are going to come muck it all up for everybody else.

All I was saying is that I don't care whether anybody reveals anything on-line, and in the same vein, don't judge me for taking that prerogative. Find a place nobody knows about, and keep it to yourself. Go there only by yourself, and enjoy all that fun you're having by yourself.

I invent a fly pattern (or not) and post a photo and tying recipe, then tell the world on this site exactly how to fish it, then tell everyone it works on the Duck River for smallmouth. Next thing I know, people are telling me not to post that information. Like they own the Duck or something.

I'm going to do it without any guilt whatsoever, just as many have done for me on this sight. In fact, I will take great pride and pleasure in it, so those that judge me might as well get used to it. If they don't want to teach or be taught, fine by me.

Has anybody taken the treasure hunting trip with the Canoe the Caney outfit? You actually get to search for buried treasure on Betty's Island. I hope they don't find the moonshine cache. Check out their website.

Way warm and way shallow.

Hate to say it, but most of the time I am on the river I am the guy who might say hello but nothing more. Not that I am an azz or anything (well I am) but I just like to be left alone unless someone is paying for my services.

I have been in and around this areas trout rivers for eons and am very well known so it isn't uncommon for people to want to hammer me as to what I am using and how.

I stick to fishing mostly during the week to avoid this, and never fish at public access areas for the same reason. I am happy to help, but my assistance comes at a price, and although it may sound rude and arrogant, it stems from just wanting to be left the heck alone so I can enjoy a day to myself every now and then on the river.


I couldn`t care less what you or where ya`ll catch them trout,,I just wondered if with all the complaining about the Caney if anybody ever fished up the Cumberland,,I`ve deer hunted all up and down that river from the Wolf Creek Dam to where the river comes under the road back towards Celina and from the looks of some of the stringers them guys had,,there are trout up there..

Lots and lots and lots of trout. It sometimes poses problems for the flyfisherman, though. Because of the river's size, it takes such a long time for the water to dump out to make it wadeable (or at least manageable with a fly from a boat). That's not the case right now, but it is normally the main concern. A boat is almost a necessity usually just to get to where you can wade.

Mr. Big - it's also a phenomenal striper fishery. I haven't targeted them up there, but I know many who do. I have casted at dozens that I just happened to see while fly trouting. I hooked 2 but couldn't turn either one of them - spooled me, I grabbed on to the end of the line to save it, and SNAP!

A whole different subject, but I've deer hunted many times in KY but not near that area. I'd love to do some surf and turf trips up there this year but don't know where to deer hunt. Is there public land near there?

Decent buck??? Geeesh!
I know we're totally hijacking this fishing thread with blood letting. I may just look into public land nearby. Little camping, little trouting, little hunting, awesome!
