South Holston River

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Many approaches can be applied on the SoHo. However a long leader, 6X tippet, and small flies will be the best practice. The river is packed with fish, but they are smart and selective. Most nymphs will start at a size 16 and go smaller from there. Sulphers will be 14-16 and BWO's will be 16-20. Streamer fishing is usually reserved for float trips during high water.

Always remember, generation flows change daily. Check the flows before you enter the water:

Seven-day forecast 

Wade fishing in the morning and float fishing in the afternoon with generation. Most days there is a window in the evening to wade fish after generation on the upper end of the river.

**Not sure what to expect from TVA. Sluicing is in the future, but has been delayed multiple times.**
