Slucing is over as of Friday

It looks like Friday is the last day of sluicing on South Holston River. The prediction is for three  one hour pulses a day. So low water fishing will be on. Please check schedule always to make  sure that is what is happening. – ALWAYS Check schedule.  That should mean Sulphurs are not far away.

This week, I have fished every afternoon but Monday.

Midge pupae and black fly larva has been the key for me. Fish have been really eating them. They are full of both. They are in their mouths – their mouths are running over.

And as usual, black fly adults and spinners galore late evening.  I have seen a lot of BWO’s on the water. But fish don’t seem to be eating them. I have followed them out of sight many times this week- no fish ate them.

Come on, the water should be friendly to waders.

Tight lines,

Rod  Champion
