    Does anyone know if the skippies are at the steamplant or not. Looking to do some fishing tomorrow and need some bait.

    Gotta to know which one your talking about. I am pretty sure you can find em anywhere around a dam or a steam plant right now it has warmed up enough. I get em anytime I have tried in the last month.

    We have been getting skips and small shad at the Clarksville end of Lock C with a cast net. Good luck and don't catch'em all and if you do let us know so we can help you eat'em

    First post here, I'm from Clarksville. Latest info on the skipjack is Cheatam Dam. They have ZERO generators running, been like that for awhile, but there are a FEW skipjack that are being caught. I would recommend early morning or at dusk using sibiki rigs or 1" white curly tail grubs.

    Only thing I've been hearing is at Cheatam Dam, the water is around 90 degrees at the steamplant. If you fish at cheatam dam you will need a boat to catch them, thats what I've been told by a couple of fisherman passing thru the shop.
