    The more stained the water at Watagua the higher the bait fish like to suspend and thus so are the active fish. In stained water, start shallow and then go deeper if needed. My fishing program does not seem affected by the generation times, but there are some spots there that have more current. Might try Sat. Fish Spring Monster Trout tourney is sat i think but weigh in is after 6 pm and its not as good as it used to be when they engraved your name on the plaque for biggest trout. Now its a certificte.

    How long do Ohrid Trout live I wonder! Maybe the did reproduce in the big W up the Watugua river since its not a tail race, but a pretty clean stream. Not many though.

    Hit the big "W" memorial day. fished 8 to 1 pm and pulled in one guy who flipped his kayak and got too tired to swim with it backed to shore with it. pulled him and his kayak on board all while keeping half our lines out.. Rainbows were on fire and we landed a dozens or more of some fantastic leapers, with some browns and a couple of chunk lakers mixed in. Lots of rainbows and few lakers which was great. Usually a lake trout fest. Landed the prettiest rainbow i ever saw, and looked unreal. lit up in orange fins, blue and reds in the super stained water still. All fished were released except 3 medium sizer rainbows and a big laker that were hooked too deep. Had plenty trout from sat still.

    Great little trout and perch lake. We fished all surface lines 7-14 ft deep on 6# and 8# mono and hooked atlesat 25 trout 2 yellow perch and a walleye. ran 2 light lead core set ups that were ticking bottom in 15-20 ft that did the best mid day. Only fished 6 lines since that's all we could keep week free.

    Great Feedback on trout genius. I am going to grill the goofy brown or brown hybrid tonight. The brown trout in Watagua and TVA resivoirs seem to likely my super stealthy ultralight divers rigs. Occasionally get one on a down rigger or mag size diver set up, but when I fished northern lake michigan in the summer on the wisconsin where they stock alot of browns you had to run the lead from the cannonball back well over 100' to get a big one. Magnum hookster spoon in white and green (Producers Co.) was deadly on shallow point and reefs 25-40 feet. Brown stay shallower in warm water. more at dawn and dusk too. Caught many over 10lbs back in the late 80's and 90's.

    I caught a weird trout or salmon sat eve on Watugua. WHAT KINDA OF TROUT OR SALMON IS THIS? 3RD trout from the bottom in the pic with laker, brown and rainbow as a referenceSquare flat tail, not a laker. Greenish and mottled markings on it's back, not a rainbow. Could be a brown or hybrid of a brown with a brook trout, but don't know if that's possible. Great fighter! The flesh was bright orange. 2nd is a pic of the fillet. Froze the head to maybe get it identified

    Thanks for posting the Chilhowee events. too sick to even go outside saturday for more than 10 mins. I'm not sure where i'm going to be end of May or June. South Holston has good access fishes well in June-July and August. Loaded with rainbows, some lakers and brown. Favorite trout lake next to Watugua and only about 40 mins further East.

    That's Scott (30 lbs in the box) for organizing the first event on Watagua. One though i had to spice up the weigh-in would be the weigh 3 trout combined but you could add a 4th and 5th trout to your combined weight if the were different species. For example. If you weighed in 3 lakers, and had a rainbow, then the rainbow could be the 4th. or Three lakers a brown trout could be the fourth. Or 3 lakers, a rainbow and brown trout then you could total five. Just some xrta bonus points for multiple trout species.
