Nothing but good things to report here lately. The water level on our streams are great, and should provide us with excellent fishing for months to come. The nice weather has woken up all of the bugs as well, which has made for some fabulous dry fly fishing here recently. Quill Gordons, Early Dark Stones, BWO’s, and Dark Caddis have been pouring off on those warm days we have been having. With the stiff flow of water, look for those slower back eddies, and seams to find the rising fish. If you get into a caddis hatch, and your dry fly doesn’t seem to be the answer, try swinging a soft hackle down and across stream to imitate the pupae. A lot of the time this technique can make the day.
I don’t want to jinx anything but it looks like we have been blessed with an early spring. The weather has been great, and the fishing has gotten incredible here in the last few days. We have had several guide trips lately, and all of them have gone really well. Bugs are hatching and fish are eating!
The East Fork of the French Broad is getting stocked on Thursday which means the Tuck should get fish either Friday or Monday. Both rivers have been fishing well without the extra fish, so next week they should really be on fire!
With the early arrival of spring, our guides are booking up fast…..
