John Slagle at Lake View Dock in Bristol reports that everybody is having a blast catching trout on South Holston Lake. “That’s the hottest thing, whether you’re night fishing with a multitude of baits or trolling during the day,” Slagle said. Night anglers are fishing 20 to 25 feet under the lights. Trolling anglers are picking up rainbows in the 25- to 30-foot range. Lakers are deeper: 40 to 50 feet. If you have a favorite trolling spoon, use it. A variety of things are working.
