Went to the Holston again yesterday putting in at JBD. Following rhotenj's advice I headed upstream to the dam area, trolling jerkbaits as I went. Caught 10-12 on the jerks, all longer than 14". They didn't seem any smaller up by the dam than down by Eastman. The largest of the day, 19", was within sight of the dam. I tried casting a spinner and drop-shotting nightcrawler pieces near the dam hoping for some dinks but got no bites on either. Any suggestions for smaller fish in that area? I was thinking of trying smaller jerkbaits as well as using a flyrod to toss some really light spinners and soft baits.
