Our signature hatch is On ! The Hiwassee is known for its great drift boat dry fly fishing. Hendricksons, Blue wings, sulfurs, caddis, stoneflies, and terrestrials. But it is the Isonychias in the summer that really get the blood pumping. Also called slate drakes, these are our largest mayfly species. They hatch sporadically during the summer and keep the fish looking up. They have just begun. As with the rest of our hatches this year, we are seeing above average numbers of these big bugs. We fish the big dark colored parachute style dry flies in our guides favorite patterns. This is what we wait all year for. The next 45 days will be the most awesome dry fly fishing of the season. Give us a call and lets have some fun!
