where should i go to fly fish in august?
 
hello everyone,
i am new to this forum. been fly fishing for a few years now and this august i have a week vacation that i would like to go fly fishing on.

i live in north east ohio, im not afraid to travel and was looking at tennessee or virginia, or west virginia.

i know in august heading south isnt always smart, BUT i was hoping for advice on where would be best.

i dont have a problem with small streams catching 10 inch rainbows and browns, so it doesnt have to be trophy size fish.

where ever i go i dont mind camping or a small motel since i plan to spend most of the time in the water.

if anyone has advice on where i should head its greatly appreciated :D

thanks everyone

First off welcome to the forum!
Your a long ways away, but the Rockies have had a tremendous winter snow pack, we are in full spring runoff right now and once it subsides the fishing is going to be awesome in July and August! I'd suggest anywhere in CO, WY, MT or ID.
If your looking for something a little closer, you might think about the Driftless area of WI.

Man if your going to TN the South Holston river is right here in Bristol and you have the Watauga right up the road the SOHO is one of the best brown trout fisheries in the east with 20 pounders being caught every year and 8 to 12 pounders being caught fairly regularly. the good thing about the SOHO is you can wade around 80% of the river.
