I may be late to the game for your trip. Caney is best but lately the generation schedule has been unfriendly to wading. Caution: when they turn off the generators you still have to give the Caney a lot of timefor water levels to drop.

With only one day I predict the elk will be where you end up. Not a bad river. I agree with the other post about it getting crowded. I hear it has been good fishing lately though, and I believe it was stocked in the last two weeks.

Hope you enjoy Nashville and the fishing. It is a great place to live.

Thanks John!

The generation forecast for both rivers didn't look so good, so I went to the Harpeth, which turned out to be very high and murky due to the rain the night before. So I found a small pond, caught a couple dozen bluegill on dry flies, and called it a day.

The next day I went with a fiend to Percy Priest and rented a boat. Guys there were throwing umbrella rigs and catching striper after striper. After a couple hours of no love on the fly, I picked up my buddy's spinning reel and a rubber worm and quickly landed a couple nice sized largemouth bass.

We had a great visit and really love Nashville!

Andy
