Hiwassee and Holston River fishing on fire!

The Hiwassee River trout fishing has been on fire lately. Trout are feeding in all levels of the water column and do not seem to be picky about what they will eat. We are catching them on dry flies, streamers, swung soft hackles and nymphs. I don't really know how you could have a fishless day on the Hi right now. TVA is on a pulsing schedule right now and the falling water is triggering some incredible dry fly activity. The sulphurs are popping and the fish are taking notice.
Rocky, our Holston River expert, told me today that the fishing there is incredible. He said that they too are catching fish on just about any type fly that you want to throw. He said the fishing should remain stellar all through the summer months.
As you can see, now is the time to be fishing in East TN! Give us a call soon to book your dates for this season. Once schools let out for the summer we get extremely busy with bookings. That is a huge vacation time and people want to get some fishing in while they can. Don't wait too long to try and book your day!
