    Default Itís hot!

    The weather, not the fishing. Tried it this evening and found water temps of 85-88. We caught a few, including another T.A.R.P. The few we caught were in 20+ FOW. I did snap a picture of what I call willow flies. Maybe thatís what they really are, and not something that I made up? The wind was from the east, and Iíve always heard thatís less than ideal. Anyway, it always beats working!Name:  IMG_1014.jpg

    That TARP needs to eat some of those "willow flies", he looks long and skinny! That dock will be a fish bonanza at night when things cool and calm down as most of those flies will die in the next day or so then drop into the water to become fish food (attractants). I saw where you are headed up towards Yankee land for a week, hopefully it will be cooler than it is here. Good luck and safe travels!

    It was every dock, and the bream were slurping em pretty good. Are they called willow flies or did I make that up? Based on weather.com it ainít much cooler, but Iíll be trying for some trout and smallmouth. Iíd love to catch a walleye, but it would be a dumb one! Kinda like Bill Engvallís dorkfish!

    Willow flies are a colloquial name for Mayflies. They can have large hatches that usually last only a few days, with some species actually living for 1 day as an adult. They make excellent panfish bait, and both the nymph and adult phase are commonly copied by fly fishing enthusiasts. The lake you fish (TN River) is full of nice walleye, I think the majority of them just live in the headwaters. I have put a boat in above Neyland Stadium and caught the toothy critters up near the Island Home airport and the Forks of the Rivers. Good luck up North!
