Fly Fishing Adventures
in the Southern Appalachians

Tic and Client HiwasseeIt’s that time again !  Time to dust off the long rods and think about
getting out on the water for a little rod bending.  We are starting to see
some good insect activity which means the dry fly bite is probably on by
the time you read this and can get your schedule together for a fishing
trip. For the next 45 days or so we will wading the upper Hiwassee and
Tellico rivers and its tribs, and drift fishing the lower Hiwassee, Toccoa,
and Holston river below Cherokee.  We could also see some windows on the
Clinch river before long.  For tasty morsels, we have a smorgasbord on the
way.  The small stones are finishing up with small blue wings possible at
any time. The new fare consists of black caddis, and the beginning of the
Hendrickson hatch. The fish are definitely starting to look up.

The fishing forecast for east Tennessee couldn’t be better. We have enjoyed several years now of adequate moisture in the region. Although a pain for us to endure, the late cold weather in the area this year has helped to provide
us with good cold water for the spring and summer. All of the tailwaters are holding quality fish.  Here are a few of our latest pics from recent trips.  Call or email today and we can get you on the books.
