Hello Southeastern Fly Fishers ! Just a note to confirm our excellent spring / summer drift fishing conditions on the Hiwassee River. Our lake is now slightly above summer pool and TVA is currently running our preferred flow schedule. 24 hour generation during the week with some low water mornings on the weekends. Our water temps are also exceptionally cool throughout the river due to the long, cold spring. We are set up for some great fishing throughout the summer. The river currently has the largest fish population that we have seen in over 10 years.
The bugs are loving it too! We are having excellent hatches with blue wings, sulfurs, cahills, and more caddis of every kind than we have seen in years. The June and July Isonychia hatch should be epic this year.
This is one season on the Hiwassee that you will not want to miss. Call now for good dates throughout the summer.
