Trip report - 7/12 Tennessee River at the 'Coon

Managed to talk Rob Prytula into doing a float on the Tennessee River for a few bass and bluegill. Well, I didn't have to exactly twist his arm or anything - the guy is a fly fishing fanatic. SE FFF Flytying chair, fly fishing guide, past president of the local TU chapter, etc. You could say he has an interest.

So we met up early Sunday morning, shuttled the cars, and put the drifter in at the Raccoon Mountain ramp around 6:30 am. It was overcast when we put in and stayed that way pretty much the whole day. Even got a bit of rain at one point. This kept the topwater bite in play well into the afternoon and we nailed fish on popping bugs all the way up to our take-out around 2pm. Caught plenty of fish on streamers, but most came on the poppers. Bass and bluegills, mostly.

So we caught some fish, which was good. More importantly though, we familiarized ourselves with this stretch of water and pinpointed a few areas that will get most of our attention on our next float here. Sometimes scouting for future trips is the most important part of the day. But yeah, catching a lot of fish is good too.

Rob is a hardcore warmwater angler and says he could care less if he ever catches another trout as long as he lives. Don't know if I would go that far, but it sure is hard to imagine a better way to spend a day.
