We are approaching the third week of Weir repair on the South Holston River. Despite the watercolor and lower flows (no pulses) the fishing has been good. Big midge hatches on upper section are producing good numbers for advanced anglers. Morgans midge and Black fly variations #22-24 are key. Nymph fishing is good on upper and middle. Non weighted flies PT, Brassie and Medallion midge are working.
Our guides are still fishing the Watauga River. The consistent schedule and light traffic have kept the bite steady. BWO and midges are coming off on middle and upper. Non bead Split case, English PT, and Baetis patterns are a must. Red and Brown Midges #20 are working on upper section.
Streamer Fishermen willing to fish the afternoon high-water schedule are moving and catching some big fish.
