WHITE RIVER Brown trout are biting sculpins and slicker minnows. Rainbow trout are biting 3/16-ounce Blue Fox inline spinnerbaits and orange egg-patterns.

NORFORK TAILWATER The most productive flies have been small midge patterns such as ruby, root beer and zebra midges. Black or red with silver wire and silver bead are best. Soft hackles like the green butt are working well, too. Egg patterns also have been productive. Double-fly nymph rigs have been very effective. Try a small Y2K suspended 18 inches below a brightly colored San Juan worm. Best colors are hot fluorescent pink or cerise. The fishing is better in the morning.

LAKE HAMILTON TAILWATER White bass and hybrids are biting crankbaits, jerkbaits, spinnerbaits and jigs below Carpenter Dam. Stripers are feeding below the bridge in the late evening. Balloon rigs with gizzard shad give anglers a good chance to hook a big striper, but artificial lures such as Super Spooks and Alabama rigs should not be overlooked.
