Spring has sprung and April showers will bring May flowers this year as we have seen some rain over the last week and it is coming our way as the week progresses. This is great news! A little extra water is never a bad thing as we head toward our epic Caddis Hatch on the Watauga.
We have had some great fishing over the last couple of weeks and get ready it’s about to be red hot. Both the South Holston and Watauga have had a relatively consistent bite with Mayflies being the main course under the indicator. Drys? Yep we got em, in the afternoons for about 2-3 hours of rising trout. In the next few weeks the waterline on the Watauga Tailwater will be crawling with Caddis, This will bring out the Alpha’s giving anglers a shot at a great brown on the dry fly. This hatch is short and sweet but truly a phenomenon that should not be missed. If the thrill of the hunt is up your alley than this hatch can quench that thirst.
