This is going to be a boating trip based out of Helms Landing at Riverside Retreat. Lodging is $60 per person for the weekend. You must pay a $30 deposit to the trip coordinator 30 days prior to the trip.
This trip will be modified consistent with river conditions as we approach the trip. Potential low generation/river flow should mean excellent wading. However, if the water is high we will use boats, canoes, pontoons as appropriate. Wading areas will be accessible by boat with some "walk-in" opportunities.
Please consider the information below. The Cumberland River can change it's flow and elevation in a matter of hours, thus the fishing has to be adapted to the conditions at hand. The best case scenario is that we don't have much rain (to raise the lake and increase river flow) prior to this outing. If the water is high we will have to fish from water craft, and if it's too high the trip is off. If we have to fish from water craft you will need to be a rather accomplished fly fisherman. On the subject of water craft, it will be your responsibility to secure a craft and/or a buddy. You can follow other experienced members up the river but you have to know how to operate an outboard powered boat.
