October Fishing Report

Here is your October Fishing Report – The rivers and streams of North Georgia and North Carolina have gotten some much needed rainfall this month. The wild freestone streams are really firing up with active trout smashing Large Brown Elk Hair Caddis and Stimulators. A dropper added to your high riding dry such as a size 16 Pheasant Tail or Prince nymph will get results from surface shy larger fish this fall. Nymph fishers will find Rubber Legged Stones in Black or Brown to be a staple fly to dredge the bottom of fast runs for chunky fish. Streamer tossing folks will find browns getting frisky chasing baitfish while fattening up for the spawn in November. Big Sculpin Patterns and Rubber Legged Wooly Buggers will pull some beasts from the depths of our local Toccoa Tailwater and the Delayed Harvest section of the Tuckaseegee River on our float trips. The Nantahala River and Fires Creek Delayed Harvest is a great place to get someone hooked on fly fishing with fantastic wade trip opportunities. Fly patterns need not be complicated. Egg patterns and San Juan worms will rock their world on these streams. Get out and enjoy the fall fishing here in the mountains!
