Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
Be sure to check the TVA release schedule shown above.
Different species of Blue-winged olive nymphs are very plentiful and available for the
trout and various species can hatch on warmer, cloudy days.
Still, a good strategy is fishing 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.
Fish the Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin streamers anytime during low light
conditions or higher water levels.
Midges are hatching. Light greens, creams and reds or blood midges.
Sulphurs are hatching.
Cinnamon Caddis are hatching. Little Sister Caddisflies are hatching.
Terrestrials may be important at times - Carpenter ants, Japanese beetles and hoppers.
