More than one way to skin a cat on South Holston River

These are just a few of last weeks guide trip catches.
First one is on Dry Fly…second on a nymph and third was from SoHo guide
Rutger Wilson–on a streamer.
Give us a buzz at 4234-878-2822 if you want to give it a cast.
eThe first of the week , it looks as if TVA is going to generate in the afternoons. Leaving just about all day wading if you know how to go down stream ahead of water.

Never too late to learn to Fly Fish

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.


Sulphurs on High Water

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.

South Holston and Watuaga Rivers

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.

There are Sulphur hatches and spinner falls to be had if you know where to look.

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.”
