    Yes the SoHo is the best fishery but also has the most attention especially on weekends. My favorite is the Clinch, I enjoy the streamer fishing when they are generating, but my favorite is when you can get a window with no generation. I love putting in at the Orchard and midge fishing before daylight, how those fish can see a #20 Zebra Midge a hour before breaking baylight I'll never know...Big Time FUN

    Are you saying the Clinch doesn't have crowds , maybe not an hour before daylight, but after day light . That can be a different story.they all have their crowds during good fishing times. But for for all types of flyfishing the South Holston has more bug life. So if you enjoy dry fly fishing from Feb to Nov. the Clinch maybe you might get lucky a sulphur hatch , might happen , Midges on both rivers. And of course nymphs any time. But my preference is on top. So my chances of this happening is the S Holston. And all native Brown Trout.

    Ha ha. Fish a tailwater, the chances for blow outs and skunkers are closer to 0. Your schedule is up to TVA however.

    Where else can you go and see dry fly action on low water all year round every day. Not many places.

    My hot dog stand idea makes a lot of sense though. Have you been to the weir dam lately on a weekend?
