“It’s all good”. Our southern Appalachian streams and tailwaters are happening now. The bugs are on and the trout are rising.
Hiwassee River - Drift the lower or wade the upper. It doesn’t matter, fish are everywhere. Hendricksons, Blue Wings, Caddis and more.
Toccoa River – good flows came a little late this year, but we can drift it all now. Good hatches. Big nymphs for bigger fish.
Tellico River – Perfect levels for wading. Bows, Browns and Brookies. Quills, Little stoneflies, Caddis and it is time for Drakes.
We are barely into our early spring season and already things are starting out big. Our twenty-inch club has two new members, Jim and Richard with a brown and a rainbow trout from our local tailwaters. 2010 is going to be a great year on our east Tennessee rivers and mountain streams. The weather has been right and the adequate rains have our reservoirs in great shape for the season. We have good fish numbers and size with plenty of bugs for this year.
