So I've decided to try fishing the closest body of water lately. For me, that's the Hiwassee. I put in right before Bowater and go upstream. I don't go very far. The water/shore looks so promising, I don't see a need to keep driving. But the only thing I'm catching are branches and an occasional (very small) bluegill. I know there are other fish out there. Either I need to keep driving or use something different. I usually fish with Bobby Garland, as they seem to attract everything out there. Not on the Hiwassee.

All that to say, anybody out there fish that part of the Hiwassee? Do I need to move farther up the river? Use some different bait?

I enjoy catching good-sized bluegill and crappie.

Thanks for humoring the fishing moron.

Fished Candies Creek, Rogers creek two weeks ago, slow. Spots and largemouth were shallow, usually near laydowns.

Thanks! So in your opinion, is the fishing better in the creeks or is there fishing to be done in the main river?

Fishing lower end of Chick in the last week or so, found fish on the river, back in slough's. Didn't find enough numbers when I fished the Hiwassee to say one was better than the other. The noticeable difference was the water was 5-8 degrees lower than this end.

> usually near laydowns.

OK, I'll show my inner noob. What, exactly, does this mean?

Didn't think about the temperature change. Makes me think they are perhaps in the creeks, where it will be a tiny bit warmer. Hmmmm...

and laydowns are trees that have fallen in the water.

Note to all: Anything I write can be corrected. Again, I am something of a fishing moron.

Thanks again!
