Good Day Float on the SoHo…..
Fri. Jan. 10, 2014… It was great to get on the water again after the past week of single digit temps and frozen water. Most of our small waters were either frozen or choked with ice.
I guided Brad Ball and Stephen Starnes today on a full day South Holston float. We floated the middle section of river and did well.
We were into a bunch of rainbows right after we put in. Y2ks with a Choco Midge dropper was the rig of the day as we nailed about 8 or 10 rainbows right off the start. We continued downriver and caught a few more rainbows and one brown before anchoring up a dredging a mid river ledge that holds some large fish. Brad landed one nice 20.5" brown from that spot.
The rest of the trip we caught about 8 or 10 more rainbows before floating through a closed spawning area to our takeout.
A great day, great guys. Fishing was good…..2014 is off to a good start. Have a couple float trips next week and a small stream trip or two as well.
Have a great weekend….
