Description

Added by Jake Sells

Fish under the shade of Clover Hollow Queens Truss Bridge in Sinking Creek, for a picture perfect summer day.

Park alongside of the road at the bridge where 2-3 cars can fit. From here you can fish in Sinking Creek with a great view of this historic landmark. The majority of fish are native brook's and can be caught on a smaller 4-5 wt rod using dry flies.

The covered bridge was built in 1916 and spans 70 feet across Sinking Creek. It is one of three remaining historic bridge's in Giles county, but the only one open to the public. This is also a great stop if you want a quick snap of the bridge!

Reviews

I'm not used to finding covered bridges this far south (usually a Northeast thing), but it was a welcome sight! The fishing was solid, caught a few brookies that responded well to dry flies (parachute Adams).
