South Holston Lake

We tried some fishing on South Holston Lake on last Tuesday.  Here are some pictures that show the beauty of the lake with the mountains in the background. One thing that makes this lake special is the lack of residential and commercial development around the lake. It’s a good lake for trout, smallmouth bass, and walleye pike.

We caught 9 lake trout but no rainbow trout. Here some pictures of the fishing tackle we used, and the fish.

8’ and 10’ rods with line counter reels on each side of the boat.

30 pound test braided line . If you get hung you may save the Deeper Diver but loose the spoon.

with a variety of colors.


We use 14 pound mono line for the leaders of 4-5 feet.  We use swivels to prevent line twist.

Deeper Divers. Leader to the spoons goes off to the right.

Line to the reel goes to the left

When you get a strike the latch lever is released so you can bring in the fish more easily.

The Results – Some nice Lake Trout

Joke of the Day

One summer, a drought threatened the crop in a small town. On a hot and dry Sunday, the village parson told his congregation, "There isn't anything that will save us except to pray for rain. Go home, pray, believe, and come back next Sunday ready to thank God for sending rain."

The people did as they were told and returned to church the following Sunday. But as soon as the parson saw them, he was furious.

"We can't worship today. You do not yet believe," he said.

"But," they protested, "we prayed, and we do believe."

"Believe?" he responded. "Then where are your umbrellas?"
