The plans for the Jackson River Tent Revival had to be postponed due to all of the rain and the dam being opened up to 1010 CFS! I still had to drop my son and three of his friends off on the Appalachian Trail. That left me an hour and a half from the South Holston so I headed on down I-81. I pulled in to one of my favorite spots at 11:30 and was surprised to find the river void of fishermen.

I rigged up with a BWO and Jujubee and began working the riffles and runs. Soon enough the bamboo was bent and the reel was singing. I felt some time pressure as the 11 o'clock dam release would blow me off the river all too soon.
Just after I poured myself a Smoked Porter, the alarm on the dam went off.
Whoop, Whoop, Whoop. Fishermen can off the river after about five minutes the flood gates opened! Damn glad I got out from down below!
great quality pics-you suck
what type of bwo were you using-dry or emergeri just tied up some jujus and trying to figure out the best strategy-behind emerger bwos or drys?
Very nice. Those rivers sure do produce some good looking fish.
