    getthenet~I was fishing below Old Hickory Dam today and the skips were quite thick and active. So I would assume that the skips at Cumberland City would be active as well, but I could be wrong as I've never been there myself.

    Catfishnewbie08...Are you fishing up near the dam or down by the boat ramp? In a boat?

    skips were in the steam plant good today! I think tomorrow will be the best day for them and the weather is supposed to hold.

    Cattracker~ I am fishing from the bank on the Rockland Recreation area side, directly across from the boating ramp. When you go down the steps from the parking lot to the bank, you see a feeder creek on your right. If you're looking for white bass, I've been catching some at the mouth of that creek on white jigs, especially after a good rainfall. From the creek to about 50-60 yards to the left of the creek, I've been catching skips anywhere between those two points on chartruese twistertail jigs. Shoot, they were so aggressive yesterday, I think they'd bite just about anything!

    I haven't tried close to the dam since there is a sign posted on the walkway towards the dam that says that the fishing platform was closed due to falling rocks. So I don't want to take a chance and risk getting a ticket or something.
