The only zone currently with clarity is above the Teanaway confluence where it has been a little crowded lately with anglers
Fishing is good. Water temps are 38-40 degrees with the flows ranging between 40-60K and 8 feet of visibiity. Nymphing and swinging/retrieving have been the game.
Utilizing a variety of sink heads based on depth and flow is important with any fishing and that is key here as well.
Receiving much needed rain in the last 24 hours – Although we could use a lot more. Fishing remains steady for some opportunity and some big fish around.
Sink tip rates used lately with success include:
->5 inches per second poly leader on a mid belly
->10 feet of T-14 on a standard floating Skagit
->10 feet of T-8 on a Rio Game Changer
Flies that have met with success include:
->Trey’s Bunny Leech
->Dark Mole Leech
SAGE X REVIEW
Two words come to mind with the 8130 Sage X – Lifting Power – remarkable lifting power.
Great fishing…. See last reports for specifics. Not much dry fly action yet but should happen any day soon. Weather looks favorable. It appears that the warmer weather forecasted wont blow the river out as the highs will be mid 50s with night time lows near 30. — We would call that perfect.
