    That is interesting when I was there a week and a half ago we had 68 on the surface mid fifties was like 35 down. If the Calderwood was generating that means wAter is coming from 180+ feet from the bottom which is ice water. When I was at Calderwood talking to some anglers camping they were complaining the water being to cold with all the generation going in. That is what they were claiming. We put our feet inthe water at Calderwood and it was numbing. Did you shoot the temp with your fishhawk?

    Chillhowee is cold and gin clear right with all the water they are running getting Fontana lowered. I didnt fish Calderwood today due to the weather and major front wind and rain we’re wicked in the mnts. Are eyes are set on Nantahala when this weather settles out

    Chillhowee reservoir continues to be the place to be . 12 for 15, 7 bows, 4 Smalljaws and a perch. Ran 3 rigger pattern,cause that’s all we needed. 18-32ft down was the zone. Nantahala nailers NH1’s and NH2’s were the main coarse. Fish were coming two on a rod, literally!!! Click the link below scroll down to see the pics. Staying in the Mnts. Calderwood in the morning weather permitting https://m.facebook.com/nantahalanailer/

    Right now it would be hard to drive past Chilhowee. Buddy of mine has been punishing the bows pulling NH1’s and NH2’s 12-25 down on the riggers. I want to fish Santeelah but know several that fish it often and there wanting to make the run to Watauga/Dale Hollow/Chilhowee. Nantahala has been giving up some impressive bows and a few nice browns as well. The herring are growing the trout just as anticipated. Nantahala is going to be hot in the next few years. Watauga is still fishing well but you will kill a lot of fish bringing them up through all that warm water. I hate wasting the fish like that. Last October we were taking fish with 145ft of cable out. 55degress was 100 down on my Moore sub troll. A lot of stress on those fish.

    I have not fished santeetlah, it’s on my bucket list. It’s hard for me to drive by Nantahala. The state just finished sonar/netting work. They didn’t net one salmon. That doesn’t mean anything but no one has heard of any Kokanee caught this year. They netted rainbows, walleyes, perch and a bunch of blueback herring. A huge opportunity exist for a trophy brown trout fishery. Nantahala has better habitat and water temps than Appalachia. Plus lack of predators to eat the stocked fish. There is just not huge numbers of anything in that Lake. I hate the salmon look to be gone but the trout potential is there.

    As long as we are on the topic of spoons I hope you all take some time to check out my Facebook page, scroll down and enjoy. Would really enjoy sending local folks some of my patterns that I, and many others have fished for 20+ years. I don’t believe you will be disappointed with durability, components, and color selection. https://m.facebook.com/nantahalanailer/?ref=page_internal&mt_nav=0
