08/15/16 River Report
River Flow 272 CFS - Visibility Clear - AM Water Temp 74'F. - Today is the PERFECT day to come up and go fishing!!! Water levels have come up nicely (more rain expected this week), Lower Humidity out there today and the ISO's are once again littering the surface of the river!!! Take a ride and fish for the monster smallies with your favorite poppers and streamers. Then grab a nice meal or nap and fish the ISO hatch in the evening. The smallies are looking up for these big bugs too! - Also the pike and carp fishing is hot up behind the dam.
Look for Bass behind exposed boulders in the deeper runs & pools. - Carp are very active in the TMA. - Try dragging some Woolly Buggers, crawfish or Big Stone Fly Nymphs by them. - Fish the side channels of the power house in Falls Village for Bass or Carp. Lot's of exposed river structure to target at the power house -- Nymphing & Streamer fishing is the way to go during daylight hours.
