South Holston River, Tennessee - Fishing Report -
December 07, 2016
The weather will be getting a little cooler the next few days. That will affect the water
temperature very little except in the middle and lower ends of the river. It will be a little
cooler there. There are still Blue-winged olives and lots of midges hatching. The Brown
sculpin streamer should still catch some larger brown trout.
7 Day Weather Forecast: There is a chance of rain today and again Saturday and
Sunday, otherwise clear for the next week. Highs will be 31 to 47 and lows from 17 to 33
Recommended Trout Flies:
Blue-winged Olives: size 20/18 nymph, emergers, duns and spinners
Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin, size 6
Midges: Blood (Red), sizes 20/22, larva, pupa and adults
Midges: Light Green, size 20/22, larva, pupa and adults
Midges: Cream, size 20/22, larva pupa and adults
Winter Stoneflies, size 16 and 18, nymphs and adults
Black Flies, size 18/20, larva, pupa and adults
Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
Be sure to check the TVA release schedule shown above. If no turbines are running,
you can wade the stream. If one is running, you can wade the stream in places but
floating it would be the preferred method.
Hatches of various species of Blue-winged Olives are possible in the afternoons and
more likely and in greater quantities if the skies are cloudy or overcast.
Fish the Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin streamers anytime.
Winter stoneflies will start hatching soon.
Black Flies are hatching.
Midges are hatching and will become more and more important as the water gets colder.
