October 1st marks the beginning of fall trout fishing in the Southeast....and we are dead on target ! The increased levels of fisheries management we are experiencing on the Hiwassee river coupled with a mild and wet year have put us in an exceptional position for this year's catch and release season. Current trips are producing healthy fish numbers with nice holdover browns and rainbows. As October rolls in and fall continues...it will only get better.
We have seen excellent hatches throughout the year and can't wait to start seeing the bugs of fall. October caddis, blue winged olives, and then the stoneflies will be prolific. We will have a great combination of nymph, streamer, and even dry fly fishing opportunities almost daily. We still have a great attractor bite on top now.
Fall and winter fishing on the Hiwassee river has become very special to us with dependable flows, mild weather, hot shore lunches, and an opportunity for the larger fish that tend to show themselves in the cooler weather.
With the holidays fast approaching, it is a great time to schedule fall fishing trips with friends and family and take advantage of some time off from work and school and spend a day on the river with us.
