Believe it or not everyone doesn't come to the Caney Fork for the fishing. Anyone who has fished the Caney on a hot weekend knows the canoe hatch can be mindboggling. It is a slow moving river when the generation is off, which is perfect for drifting nymphs and very good for canoes.
We have spent many a days on the river waiting for canoes to pass or speeding up to beat them to the next hole, just in time to catch a fish or two, then rowing like crazy to the next hole. The Caney is public water, so after a while canoe hatches become part of the challenge.
