Okay so I have a questioned because most of you all have way more experience than me. I was on Douglas last May and fished where the 2 rivers meet and slayed them! Then went back a few more times through august and had the same outcome! Then I heard from a buddy that there is your main lake fish and then your river fish that will stay there year round. Is this true for Boone, Cherokee, P Henry etc? Ooo and I loved finding the bulrushes, standing timber and pads on Douglas! The flip and frog bite was incredible!

I would say yes, you'll be able to find fish all year in various parts of the lake and river. Some times of the year the river will be better, other times the lake portion will be better. Lots of factors go into that though and it varies from lake to lake.

True, I have been up Boone’s Watauga side quite aways but the water temp is a dramatic change. Does anyone else know of lakes around here that have the grass and such in rivers?

Cherokee does up way up lake around Rogersville. Ft Pat has quite a bit of grass too. That’s the only two I know of.

Hard part about Douglas, is it’s hard to access that river junction in winter. It’s usually too low to go past Leadvale, unless there’s been serious rain. As far as grass- go to Beech Creek (John Sevier dam). That place has more grass than Bob Marley
