South Holston continues a great wade schedule with afternoon float option. Early morning bite is good with Sulphur nymphs. Copper Head, non-bead Split case and S/H Yellow #16-18 are top picks. The Sulphur hatch is starting at 10:30 on upper river and heavy until 2:00. Puff Daddy #14-16 and Comparadun #16 are catching fish. It continues throughout the day for float fisherman. Hatch is strong from Osceola Island to Beidleman Creek and tapering off around 6. Double dries are having the most success. Comparadun with Puffs and Cripples are a must have.
