Landing Trout From The Driftboat

This past Friday my son-in-law B.T. and I got to fish the Caney Fork river in the eastern part of Tennessee. David our guide had been trying to work a day around the generation schedule that would enable us to land numerous trout during an afternoon outing. We were not disappointed, B.T. and I stayed busy all evening landing some colorful rainbow, browns and some beautiful brook trout just getting their fall colors.

I seldom get to fish with B.T. anymore because of his heavy work schedule; so getting to fish with him again on the Caney brought back some fond memories. This is the river that actually got me into trout fishing with B.T. right after he and Jenny got married. It only took landing one trout that first outing to get me hooked, and I have been obsessed ever since.

The only disappointment of the trip for me was my camera, which didn’t have my 512 Sandisk in when I started to shoot pictures. I wish I could share the beauty of the float, but leaving the sandisk at home eliminated all the images.

To complete the post with all the images and fishing from the drift boat, which is awesome to fish from check out David’s excellent account of the outing?

Look like you and your son in law truly had a wonderful outing.
I do enjoy seeing those brook trout.

Well Bill, one positive to not having the Sandisk was that it allowed you to concentrate on the fishing. Looks like it was a nice evening on the water.

Some nice fish from the Caney. Seems a lot of people like that river. Hear a lot about it.

Looks like you guys killed it on the drift boat! Excellent looking fish.

Nice going Bill. I agree with Lester. Sometimes I get too involved in getting photos for the blog.

The brook trout I landed was really colorful and had white tips on the end of its fins. They are really special as you know. Thanks for the comment

What makes it so special beside the trout is the scenery, extremely high rock walls with lot of vegetation growing out from the rocks. Thanks for the comment
