South Holston River has started a afternoon generation schedule. Morning bite is good on zebra midges 20-22 and 7X. Fish are still looking up and good amount of surface activity. Small Sparkle Dun, Puff Daddy and Morgans are working.
Afternoon high water is fishing consistent on nymph rigs. UV PT and midges are fishing good. We still have a short Sulphur hatch around three o’clock. Seeing a mix of BWOs late afternoon. Small Puff Daddy in both patterns is a must.
Our guides are primarily fishing the Watauga. The generation has been off during the week and 12-6 on Saturday. Heavy pressure and low water has made the afternoon bite slow. There is still a terrestrial bite and seeing good amounts of BWOs. Egan’s, Jig Nymphs and small midges are producing fish.
