Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
We still think the best strategy is to fish a tandem Midge rig under a small strike
indicator with the midge lava as the bottom fly and the midge pupa as the top fly. Fish
the adult midge only when you observe trout feeding on the surface.
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 or the Articulated streamers anytime.
Aquatic worms are working good.
Green Sedge caddis are hatching.
True Sulphurs are hatching.
Cinnamon Sedge Caddis are hatching.
Little Yellow stoneflies are hatchiing.
Terrestrials, carpenter ants, japanese beetles and hoppers are working.
