The South Holston has had a great schedule for float trips. The nice weather and steady flows have created really good fishing! Upper section is fishing great with nymphs. Eggs, worms, scuds, Hot spot #18 and midges are working. Small BWO hatch near Beidleman Creek at 2:00 but fish are very selective. Middle section is producing fish on streamers and sculpin patterns. Original Sculpzilla #4 and Black #8 are top picks this week.
Wade fisherman are having sucess on Soho when the schedule permits. Flashtail minis #14-16, Tan and Wine San Juan worm, Scooter midge and Sweet Thing are catching fish. *Several storms approaching area so check TVA for updates and schedule changes.
Half of our guides are still fishing the Watauga River. Good flows and low pressure are bringing big numbers to the net. Upper and middle sections are nymphing the best. Eggs, Jig Frenchie & Empty Pockets #16, split case #20 and midges are a must. All sections are streamer fishing good on High Water. Galloup,s Black and Brown/Tan Peanut Envy #2 on sinking line are moving big fish. Classic Patterns are working: Black Flash-A-Bugger and BH Olive Wolley Bugger #8. Stop by the shop for updates!
