Fly Fishing Adventures
in the Southern Appalachians
I spent a few hours on the Tellico River today with some good folks from Ohio. With it being a saturday we knew that it probably going to be a little crowded at all the usual spots. Started fishing around 10 am, finished up around 4 pm and we did manage to find a few nice ones. It did take a little extra effort on our part to find some fesh water but that's just how it is some days. Water temp was around 64 degrees where we fished at. Cloudy skies at first, but it cleared off nicely after a bit. The water level on the Tellico is running at 1.12 ft today or around a 130 cfs which is a good level for fishing. The visibility on the water was good but it was still hard to spot any fish unless they were actively feeding. No major bug activity was spotted, so we fished subsurface all day. All the fish we caught were taken on a variety of nymph patterns and with a couple being pulled in on streamers as well. All in all it was a good day on the water.
