I had the pleasure of taking Tim and Nancy fishing today. We started their trip below Douglas Dam. TVA was generating at an average of 18,000 cfs. The water had a slight stain and for the most part was unusually clear for the dam. The water temperature was 78 degrees. Skipjacks were loaded below the dam and they were catching them on every drift. They had several doubles and probably could have caught them on every drift for the entirety of their six hour trip. I know they wanted to catch some smallies so I suggested we leave the Skipjacks in the rear-view mirror and head further downstream. The smallies were tough to find in that heavy flow. However, they did manage to catch eight smallies. Three of those were between seventeen and eighteen inches. Nancy also caught a nice kicker walleye that was just shy of eighteen inches. A picture of Tim and Nancy with a nice eighteen inch smallie is included in this report. They were a really nice couple and a pleasure to guide.
