Title: Kayaking the Ocoee river, Tn.
Post by: Spyder1958 on July 12, 2014, 10:38:59 AM
Came down off the mountain Jul 5th to Kayak the Ocoee river with my daughter Beth, SIL, and a couple of friends and do a little fishing along the way. We had a great day and ended our trip where the Ocoee meets the Hiwassee River
From around 0830 till noon the fishing was nonstop, almost ever cast produced a fish. Then you couldn't buy a bite.
Hope you enjoy the photo's.

I never have had the opportunity to paddle the Ocoee, but it's one that has always been on my bucket list.  Looks like you guys had a great time! :thumbsup:

Looks like a great day to be out on the water, and it looked pretty smooth too.  Nice fishing like that makes it even more fun.  I'd like to try a kayak some day- they always look to be a lot of fun....it's on the bucket list!

Great pics too, thanks for sharing!!
