Re: South Holston/Tuckasegee Rivers

The South Holston holds 5,000 to 7,000 trout per mile, so great fishing. It's a honey hole in winter when our rivers are frozen over largely. I have three buddies that guide there and they are always trying to get me down there. Thats a hell of a fish count!! 7000 fish per mile would also be 1.3 fi...

Re: Some wild browns

Nice winter colors on those fish! I need to get off my lazy ass and do some fishing! I also enjoy the winter months for trout. Cold yes, but also very peaceful and easier to find water to yourself.

Re: nj brookies... ever again?

If you went to ANY of the meetings offered by the State you would know that 60% of trout fishermen practice e C&R while only 40% actually catch and keep. I think those numbers came out in all the surveys. there must be some bias with those surveys. Maybe the anglers volunteering to do a survey are ...

Re: nj brookies... ever again?

Working for Rutgers/State has shows how slooowww any project can be! The hatchery isnt immune to these issues and while run by competent scientists will still be bogged down by red tape. The state "lowest bidder" system is also terrible and can really hinder a project. Another big point to remember ...

Re: Technical question ? Picture for attention only

My guess is it would legally depend on where you are standing when you land the fish. In the KLG, let it go. General reg water, keep it if you want. Same would apply to walking through the KLG with a fish on a stringer you caught in general water, a CO would still argue that you cannot prove you did...

Smallies are always a nice surprise! Although you usually think you have a trophy trout until you realize its just an 8" smallie, they fight so hard!

I have to try and make it to one of these this year. I just had a couple rods delivered that were ordered over 4 years ago. Dennis Menscer actually has some rods i am interested in as he builds some true medium action rods.
I just put the order in for a nice little 4wt from Ron :D

Looks like a great time-I am hungry and thirsty just looking at the beer and the pig on a spit. Its amazing that brook trout live in that pond-is it deep and spring fed?
Yea, Ronbo built the pond since there was a spring on his property and its 10-12' deep. Stays nice and cold all yea!
