Watauga River Fly Fishing Report

Watauga River Fly Fishing Report March 29 2011
I fished the Watauga River Tuesday from the Watauga River Lodge down to the bridges takeout. Fishing was good until the water hit us around noon. We did not see any blue winged olives, but that was the nymph they were eating. We did see my first Mothers Day Caddis of the season just above the ledges. We fished the dries there for a while, but only managed a few. There were bugs, birds eating the bugs, but only about 10 fish rising. I would expect any day now the fish will really key in on the new food source.

If you want to get in on some of this great April fishing give me a call. When you plan a trip based in Asheville, NC the opportunities are so numerous that there will be some river close that is fishing great.
