Went To Calderwood last week, and fished for some trout. Caught a few, but nothing to brag about. caught fish on little cleos (gold) and a panther martin (gold with fire tail) The scenery was awesome, and I plan on going back to try it some more, and maybe I can figure out how to catch some trout. here are some pics

here is Cheoah dam



some of the lake

hey i fished up there growing up. We used to stay in the campground on the right off of 129 way back about 15 years ago. Fishing is really good. We would go up for a weekend and lunch and dinner would be trout. all we did back then was use redworms, night crawlers or corn and never went hungry. I love the lake and area and need to get back up there now that I am older and have a boat of my own.

Calderwood sure is peaceful and it never gets to bad hot up there either. Below cheoah Dam we usually throw small rapalas and do pretty well. The browns will smack the fire out of em' and rainbows will even grab em' sometimes. At night we usually go to the dam and tie up on the bank and use nightcrawlers and corn. Last time we went we came home with 24 trout between the 4 of us. It was a lot of fun and some good eatin too! Hope this helps! Good !

The Cheoah powerhouse was like outdoor air-conditioning when I was there last week. I was hot as hades after my Suburban over-heated up on the mountain. I sat up there for a few hours watching moving violations. My arrival was refreshing. Unlike the pic' posted above, if I'd taken that pic', you wouldn't have seen the powerhouse for all the fog being generated along with the electricity. The whole canyon was filled with fog for about 3 miles down the lake at 7 p.m. That fog helps the fishing up at the top-end IMO. Calderwood is generating at noon onward lately.



I caught 4 small 'Bows on my trip. I saw some larger fish. I bet I limit next time...? The fish are there. I missed getting to troll down near the dam because of my little automobile problemo. I have some deep-diving plugs and spoons I'd like to show those deep water fishes. I'm anxious to try Calderwood or Chilowee again soon.....I hope!
