I was born and raised in bristol, virginia, bristol, tenn respectively. I grew up on steele creek which later became a tenn state park with the creek, the lake, and they added a golf course then. I did most of my fishing on both sides of south holston dam. The south fork holston river wasn't a famous tail water like it is today. I attended plenty of church picnics there and we fished there all the time. I caught a lot of stocked trout there as a kid.

I had a johnson 9.5hp outboard motor for the reservoir. We never brought a boat. It was easier to just bring the motor to any of the boat docks and they would put it on a boat for you and take it off at the end of the day. My mom liked that. Some of them boat docks were pretty scary to get to. We caught bass, crappie, cats, gills, carp, turtles, you name it. South holston will always have a very special place in my heart.

After I moved to arizona the first place I ever went fishing was the black river pumping station on the san carlos apache rez. I spent the first ten years fishing the lower stretch of the black river accessing it from a stairway the geological service built down the rugged cliffs and also the military crossing. It was tough, hard, small mouth fishing I found to my liking. I also fished the tamer side of the black east and west forks accessed from the wht mtn apache rez for trout.

After over forty years I've been everywhere on the black so it's my home water now even though it's 230 miles away. It was devastated from the 2011 wallow fire and I haven't been there since to see it. 97% of the black river watershed was impacted by the fire with 233 miles of the stream system in the watershed impacted with 7 miles not impacted (west fork).

I decided to get this going again. I hope to hear from more of you concerning your current and past "Home" waters. As for me, living in southeast Idaho gives me quite a selection of beautiful places to fish. Here are a few more:

Harriman State Park/Railroad Ranch on the Henry's Fork, ID:

"No-Tellum" Spring Creek, ID - my favorite getaway:

Well, there are a few more to contemplate. We just received a dusting of snow this morning, so winter is still very close. We will probably shift from winter right into summer as we normally do. I can't wait to get back on some of my favorite home waters.

Best Fishes,

Kelly.
