      Check out Apalachai Lake James Clayton. It is a part of the Hiawassee River system, and is a great winter fishery.

      Nice catch Kyle !
      Hey Kyle, did you know that over in central Tennessee, well outside of the mountains, fish and game officials maintain winter trout fisheries ...more in several of that areas waterways ? If central Tennessee creeks and rivers are cool enough to support winter trout stocking,then surely the entire Little Tennessee River from the Georgia state line all the way to lake Fontana, could sustain trout fishing from mid September, right on through about mid April, if not even later. Kyle will you help me encourage NC fish and game officials establish a winter trout fishery in the main stem of the Little Tenn.river ? Lets do this Kyle ! Thanks dude !

      Ugh, jerkbaits are my kryptonite! Don't have any idea how to fish them. Also have zero confidence in them, which does make a difference.

    11. Christian Holyoak 0
      Ooh that sounds like an amazing lake. Sounds to me like there would be so many big fish in there because of how hard to access it is
    12. Jeremy Payne 0
      @LivewellHero I have fished there all my life we normally fish it in the summer and fall But recently have found that it is awesome in the winter
    13. Jeremy Payne 0
      It has a small ramp and very very very hard to get in and out due to turbulence from the hiwassee dam. You really have to know what you are doing or you will really ...more get hurt
    14. Jeremy Payne 0
      This doesn't even start to prove it. It's a small lake on six or seven miles long. Smallies have been caught there recently over 7 lbs. and largemouth ...more over 12 lbs
