Low water fishing is excellent here on the South Holston. TVA has been and looks like it will continue to not generate here. So wade fishing is all day.

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.

There are some BWO’s. And low water wade fishing has been good.
The South Holston River fished good this last weekend. TVA has been generating so the fishing has been from drift boats.

There were BWO’s on the water Saturday with some fish sipping them.

The nymph fishing has been good on the South Holston River the last few days. TVA is giving good wade schedules now and looks to the rest of the week. Always check to make sure. But the releases have been late afternoon for awhile now. So it looks good for you wading guys.
There have been some hatches of BWO’s. And plenty of midge sipping. So the fishing is pretty good.
Come on, you will enjoy it.
TVA is giving good wading schedules on the South Holston River right now. Generation has begun 2:00 or 3:00 pm as of late. That gives you til 7:00 wade fishing if you jump down stream ahead of the water.

Excellent BWO nymph, sulphur dry and nymphs and midge pupae are the ticket.
We have openings if you want a guide trip. Give us a call at 423-878-2822.
TVA gave good wading schedules Monday and Tuesday here on the South Holston River. There were good hatches of Sulphurs both days.
Elsewhere on the river, midge pupae and BWO nymphs did the trick. I fished a size 18 BWO nymph with an oversized bead ad caught fish well.
On generating water, there were Sulphurs. I fished it 3 days last week and the hatch lasted two hours each day. The sulphurs are smaller now, so be prepared that way. I am still a cripple fan, but Josh caught fish good on a CDC comparadun.
It was good to see BWO’s Tuesday. There was quite a large number of many different duns and nymphs floating on the water. It was littered with olive duns and cripples, olive nymphs, midges, and some sulphurs where I was. It is the South Holston River where bug life is abundant.
Come join us.
I had the privilege of fishing 3 days last week here on the South Holston River.
The Sulphur Hatches each day were terrific. Plenty, plenty of bugs…
Fish were tough like they should be. But you work them, put a good bug on them with a good drift, you could catch them.
What I liked about it, was the Brown trout were lifting their heads to eat dries. That is what it is all about.
We had some of the most interesting clients last week. They were plain enjoyable to be around.
Everyone caught fish and seemed to enjoy themselves.
Give us a call if you want to give it a whirl- 423-878-2822.
Sulphurs have been coming off on low water as well as high water, here on the South Holston River. And should continue to for a couple of month to come.
Low water fishing has been good for Beetles and midges on down the river. And always midges and black fly larvae up high, before the Sulphurs.
