Watauga River 5/3/10

I fished the Watauga River Monday, and it fished well. We were going to fish the trophy section of the Watauga, but with all of the rain that came through the night before, the river was running muddy down low – so we took off upstream. The rain had not muddied up the river above the Doe River, so we put in and headed down the river.  We started out and we caught a couple of fish right off the bat.  Then we moved down some, and really got into the rest of the day.  The fishing was really good.  We didn’t catch any big fish, but a lot of 10-12″ fish.   All in all it was really a good day on the water.  The rain ended before we got going, and it only got hot one time during the day –  then the cloud cover came in.

If you would like a Guided Trip give us a call at 423-878-2822.

Good Fishing,
