A River Runs Through It

In our family, there was no clear line between religion and fly fishing.
--Norman Maclean (1902-1990) author of A River Runs Through It

The tailwaters of the South Holston are a nationally recognized trout fishery and, from what I saw, a very popular place to be early on Saturday mornings. Pictured above is Frank Newcomb, a senior education major at Milligan College. The river is located directly below South Holston Dam which discharges water from the bottom of the lake to generate electricity, resulting in a constant cold temperature all year -- perfect for trout.
