Asheville Fly Fishing Report March 24 and March 25

The fishing is good now in the Mountains. The flood waters have resided and Spring fishing in the mountains is in full swing.

Shelton Laurel Creek
The Laurel Delayed Harvest section fished pretty well Thursday. The fish have been spread out by the big rains and you can find one in pretty much every hole that should have fish in it. They will still eat some of the normal delayed harvest flies like sj worms and stonefly nymphs, but there are lots of caddis and little quills hatching. Don't hesitate to tie on your favorite soft hackle and little mayfly nymphs. We didn't fish any dries, but did cast our nymphs to rising fish and they ate them. We left with a big fish story. One of the bigger fish I have hooked in that river this year broke us off at the net.

The Tuckaseegee fished really well yesterday. We floated on low water in the morning and did well in a few spots, but once the water hit us it was on. Duke Energy was supposed to run both of the power house, but only gave us one which was perfect. It was one of those days you dream about. I thought we might see some fish rising, but it was not the case. The Tuck is still pretty cold, but we should see some limited dry fly fishing opportunities before too long.

Call me to book a trip or for more information.
