I've fished the Conasauga a few times in late summer when the water is low and crystal clear. With these conditions, you'll probably see plenty of fish but they'll be really spooky which requires sneaking up on them and making good presentations. I've had some luck with black ants at this time of year. With my eyesight, I can't see the ant on the water and usually fish it as a dropper off a more-visible dry fly like an elk hair caddis. You should expect a lot of back packers and day hikers in the area but there plenty of river so you should find a stretch to have to yourself even if there are a few other fishermen. Good luck!
