Fishing Report: Cumberland River Week of 09-12-10 through 09-018-10

AVERAGE # OF GENERATORS: Sluices around clock

The rivers been holding around 60degrees all week. I do appologize to my followers for the lack of content on my blog. Do remember that I am learning everyday both on the business aspect and the fishing aspect. I have been out on the boat 1 time in the last week. Fishing was ok from the boat. We dropped anchor at Ray Mann Road, and several other of my "Secret" spots...That day we landed one nice Brown(I was unable to photograph due to butterfingers), and a slew of rainbows. The water was very fishy, its was just hard to make a proper presentation because of the fast water...Good news is the river will be back to low generations soons, with no forcasts of rain in the future...

Brown trout are starting to show up on the shoals! It won't be long, until they start to get very aggresive...I was on the river a total of 5 times in the last week, minus the one boat trip. Jeff Powers CEO of the AB&C program(Always believing in childern), member of the Russell County Chamber of Commerce, and Friends of Fish Hatchery Group, made a connection to me, with a now favorite fishing buddy. We got out alot this past week, and done alot of boat-less fishing. I could not count the number of fish that we landed, but lets just say, that we caught atleast one of everything! We saw a wide spectrum of game fish, Walleye, Both Species of Trout, and even a Lively little striper. We even got in on some of the "Trash" fish of the Cumberland. I preformed a study on the specimens we kept. Of these, the two were Freshwater Drum, and Sucker. Studies concluded the Drum, may provide little if any competition to trout. The like to hug bottom, and eat the crap out of Crawfish. Sucker on the other hand, do not have stomach cavaties, which means Im sure they eat their weight in food each day. They are filter feeders, and apparently do not possess imminent competition to trout.

On the other hand, I got out today and fished below Rock house, at the first big know the one...I landed more fish today, than I could keep track of. I was fishing a 3 nymph rig...Composing of a size 14 Pheasant tail, a size 16 Prince, and a size 20 zebra midge. Equal numbers of fish were taken on each fly...

Water will be back low in the next 2 days. Get out there. Its hot right now...

Nightcrawlers On Bottom

Rebel Crawdad Cranks
Marabou Jigs

If you should need anything, or have any questions concerning the river, lodging, hospitality, or attractions...please contact me...
God Bless
