TVA is giving a good schedule for both waders and floaters on the South Holston River.
The Sulphurs are hatching strong. And nice fish are being caught and missed. And plenty of rejections
are happening. It is a sight to behold- high water and thousands of sulphurs.
Tva is giving good wade schedules for the weekend..at least projecting so.
Here is a video on our facebook page that should help you out when dry fly fishing.
Stop by the shop, we have all you need to fish the SoHo.
Mr. Kenneth Bernier, age 72, has decided he wants to fly fish and catch some trout on those yellow bugs. So Robert fixed him up with a new Fenwick Eagle combo.
You would be shocked how nice that $99 rod cast. Come try one out.
You will be shocked how this $99 cast and fishes. Thank you Mr. Bernier for your business- have fun.
TVA is giving good wade schedules + good afternoon floating for sulphurs.
To quote South Holston River Fly Shop guide Josh McFadden:
“What a day out on the water with JP and Brian . These fish are really digging the noon schedule. We did a half and half program today. I stayed so busy i didnt even take pics. They flat on crushed fish this morning on low water. Took out for lunch and caught quite a few on high water fishing dries. If you can get a drift in them they will eat it. Soho trout just doing what they do…. Several fish we caught had just gorged themselves on bugs to the tune of being obese… (Like me on wing nite) back at it tomorrow guys you need to book while it’s still easy fishing on the dries”
Come fish these yellow bugs on the South Holston River. It is an event.
Nice brown that ate the dry this afternoon sulphur fishing on high water. Book now you all ask all year when will they cut the water on. Well they did and fish are eating
If you want to fish this Sulphur Hatch on high water with Josh, call the shop and ask for him to guide you.
We had the honor of guiding some of the ladies from the Georgia Fly Fishing Club this past weekend.
It seems as if the ladies had fun. I know our guys enjoyed them very much.
Thank you ladies,
South Holston River Fly Shop
Since it is pure wading on the South Holston River. The guides are going to the Watuaga River to float.
It is fishing pretty good.
TVA told me they will begin generation on the South Holston River June 1. That should kick the Sulphurs in good.
Until then. come and enjoy the good wading.
This is just a few fish from South Holston River Fly Shop guide trips the last couple of days.
There are sulphurs but fish are chasing streamers pretty well also. Of course nymph fishing is good.
Give us a buzz at 423-878-2822 if you want to try it.
TVA continues to give good wade schedules for all day fishing.
This month has always been good nymph fishing here on the South Holston River. And this year is no different.
There are Sulphur hatches and spinner falls to be had if you know where to look.
Since TVA is giving good wading schedules[like all day] now is the time for you to come and fish.
We have all you need at the shop. Come on by.
And it will be for another month. After the caddis’ have finished, the Sulphurs will begin. Then it will be on to the South Holston River for the daily Sulphur hatch everyday till November.
Below are a couple of the dry fly brown trout landed by clients this weekend. Come join the action.

Quote from Matt about yesterday’s guide trip” Man the Watauga was great today. Landed two in the 20″ range and a ton of 12-14″ Browns and rainbows. There were Caddis everywhere. If you would like to float the watauga give us a call.”
Caddis’ Hatches are cranking up on the Watuaga River. And Sulphur Hatches are starting here on South Holston River.
You really don’t want to miss the caddis’ hatches on the Watuaga. Give us a call at 423-878-2822 to book your trip.
The below pictures are from yesterday , caught by Mike Severide, and old faithful.
If you like to wade fish now is the time. TVA is giving great schedules for wading.
Always check the morning of to be sure…but it is projected excellent.
The guides tell me they are into Sulphurs some. And as usual this time of year, nymph fishing is on!.
Here is a low water rainbow caught by Scooter’s client the other day. The South Holston River is known for browns, but there are plenty of nice rainbow trout also.

Matt has been fishing the Watauga tailrace some lately. Good numbers of fish are being caught with some real nice fish. The mammoth caddis hatch will begin very soon. You do not want to miss that event. For it truly is an event which brings the big fish up. It will begin within two weeks, usually. Our guides will be floating it daily.
Sulphur and Sulphur spinner falls will soon follow that. Sometimes on the same day.
If you want to be a part of that, give us a call at 423-878-2822.
On the South Holston, it is Wade Fishing. There are some BWO hatches, but it is primarily a nymph game at the moment. Sulphur nymphs will be moving around very soon. Then it is on.
