In Middle Tennessee the lake fly fishing is for panfish, bass, or stripers. Wooly Buggers are good for all; Stripers go for large streamers like Clouser Minnows.

In tailwaters, most common combination is a scud, copper john, or pheasant tail under an Elk Hair Caddis as an indicator. Big browns in the tailwaters go for streamers like WB or other good monnow imitations.

Thumbs up Re: Most Productive Flies

Lakes - Streamers,Buggers and Clousers
Streams - Buggers and Clousers
BH Patterns and Streamers
Dry Fly - Adams Parachute or Elk Hair Caddis
Caddis - BH Caddis Larva or Elk Hair
Hoppers - Para Hopper
Nymph - Pheasant Tail or Hares Ear (BH)

My all around favorite pattern I like is one I tie myself.
It's called a killer caddis. I use a Daiichi 1250 BL hook,
caddis beads(small), and haretron. Used as a dropper it's
dynamite in spring creeks and tailwaters. Pattern is as follows:

Hook - D1250BL #14 - #16
Tag - Caddis Green Dubbing
Body - 4 to 5 Caddis Green Beads
Head - Black Haretron (Dubbing Loop)

You can tie variations galor with the availability of
beads and dubbing. I just prefer caddis green because
of where I use it.

My two best can be fished dry, wet as a nymph, and as streamers or swimming wet... Kennebago Muddler (dry makes a great Drake cripple) and the Picket Pin. They also work everywhere, and don't let anyone tell ya different!
