South Holston is constantly changing generation schedule. High water was fishing great with small midge patterns. The predicted schedule is showing less water for the weekend. The wade fisherman are having great success on dry-dropper and 7X. Still see a good Sulphur hatch on upper river when schedule permits.
Watauga River has had a better schedule for guides. The river is busy so picking the right section to fish or float is import. BWO hatch late afternoon in town. Split case and emergers are key on middle section. Upper section still has good midge bite and pre spawn patterns are getting started.
