Hello and hope things are well. Trout fishing on the South Holston and Watauga Rivers in East Tennessee has been great throughout the winter. We had some great luck fishing a little bit of everything. Nymph rigs, dry dropper rigs and blue winged olive dry flies did the trick during
the cool winter days. The action will increase as the warmer temperatures arrive with Spring. Spring is a great time to book a trip with plenty of action. The bigger bugs start coming off and the trout are looking up.
We are very fortunate here in East Tennessee with two great tailwater fisheries. Even after heavy rainfall we have options to still fish and have great success. The key is fishing closer to the dams. Closer to the dam equals less tributaries and runoff. So don't let rainfall be a concern when booking a trip. We always have options to make the day a great day of fishing.
Still have dates open for Spring trips so give me a call or email if you had a day in mind. Be sure to check out the new pictures for this past fall and winter at http://www.highcountryangler.com/gallery. Thanks for reading my update and look forward to fishing with you.
