Trout Fishing at J Percy Priest Dam – Winter Trout Fishing Part 2

Once again I am doing some winter Trout fishing at J Percy Priest Dam. Last time I was here I got skunked so I am hoping today will be different. I start out fishing with a Gulp Minnow and a bobber. I eventually remove the float and try to swim it above the rocks without getting snagged. After moving around a bit and switching to Powerbait Trout Dough, I finally catch one! It took three days to catch this one trout. Perhaps as time goes by the bite will turn on even more. I went through a lot to catch this one, but it’s my first trout of the year. If you want a challenge, try winter trout fishing at J Percy Priest Dam near Nashville TN.
