Re: Asheville nc area people wanted
It was a great weekend. Brian landed at least 5 fish with two in the 14 - 16 inch range. Dan, a friend of mine landed about the same with and even larger brown trout in the mix. I caught a couple bows and my son landed a brown. the weather was nice.
My son and I went last weekend. There were 15 or so other fly fisherman there and other than one guy who said he landed a couple small bows before 9, everyone was getting skunked. The leaves were heavy throughout the water column, it was the first clear day after 4 days of drizzle though the water was crystal clear. Biggest element was I only spotted three trout where I usually see MANY more. I threw everything at them and snagged rocks enough to know I was on the bottom. The Chattooga was just stocked a week ago. It was puzzling.
I'll probably wait till the heavy leaf fall is over before going again. probably after the restricted harvest (single hook, imitation only, catch n release) kicks in above highway 28.
