Fly Fishing Adventures
in the Southern Appalachians
July has been a hot one this year, but the water on the Hiwassee is cold and the fishing is great. Appalachia Dam is still operating on the recreational release schedule. Which is one generator stating at 10am and the 2nd generator starting at 11am with both units in operation until 7pm. This schedule allows us to float fish the upper section of river from the powerhouse down to Reliance. So lets talk about the fishing now....
The fishing is good on the 'Wass right now and if things continue on the way it's been all year. It should stay strong well into the fall. The Isonychia fishing was fantastic this year with plenty of nice fish being taken on the dry fly. The Iso hatch has slowed down some, but the fish are still eating. Last week Mark and myself had the pleasure to spend part of a day on the water with a group of guys from Alabama and we had a blast. The top water bite is on, and it's good. Summer terrestrial patterns are performing well, so break out the hopper dropper get ready to stick some fish.
We have the water, We have the fish, all you have to do is come and get'em.
