    Default Normandy Dam tailrace fishing.

    Got up this morning trying to figure out if I wanted to put the boat in at Nickajack. I decided not to make the drive and headed to the Normandy tailrace hoping for some trout action. Fished for 5 hours and brought around 150 trout to hand....and a couple of nice 14 inch KY bass. Most of the trout were 11-12 inches with some going 13 inches. I used both the twitch method and the float method. My twitching rod was a Major Craft FineTail Banshee Area 6’ 7” UL trout rod with a Daiwa Imprimi 2004H reel spooled with 2# test NanoFil line with an 18 inch section of 2# test Phantom FC leader. The float rod was a Yamaga Blanks Blue Current 8’ 3” TZ UL long cast rod.....reel was a Daiwa Certate 2004CH spooled with SOS 2# test with an 18 inch section of Phantom FC leader. Used a Trout Magnet jig head in two colors....chartreuse and black. Trout Magnet body color was pink for about half the catch and Bison for the other half. The trout were jumping...zigging...zagging.....pulling drag, never giving up. The KY bass were flat “Diggin” and making the drag scream. I love ultra light angling....made for a great day. For those close by the flow at Normandy is good....lots of fish......the water is cold....... but easy kayaking. Life is good!

    WOW! My family and I will be there soon, Randy...all things falling into place, we will be moving to Murfreesboro this spring. I will be there about mid-April to settle in and my family to follow come early June.

    BTW, that last trout on the bottom right has some killer "tiger-bow" spots/pattern.
