As trout anglers we understand the importance of rainfall and how crucial this can be. Rainfall can dictate the fishing conditions and in most cases help or hurt our catch rate depending on water flow. While most rivers in our area are to high or muddy from recent rains the South Holston is still fishing!!! Yesterday the fishing was tough in the murkey water but today is a different story, we are running strong water but clarity has improved and we are in good shape as we enter the weekend.
Sulphers are popping and the dry fly bite shall only get better as we start heading into June. The Watauga? Well, 2700CFS is alot of water and I will stay away from that flow until TVA dials it back a bit. Mother Nature must have thought our region was parched and decided to quench our thirst.
