Fly Fishing on the Tuckasegee DH in November

Posted by on November 18, 2011

Monster Rainbow caught and released on the Tuck DH

The Tuckasegee has been fishing extremely well this Fall.  The crowds have died down, which has given these fish a break from the pounding they received in October and early November.  Myself and  Hookers Fly Shop guide Clint Holcomb have been on the river almost everyday for the past few weeks guiding or just fishing.  We have seen plenty of impressive fish including a monster brown pushing 30″ that Clint hooked into several days ago.  Unfortunately, after the 10 minute fight the fish spit the fly and won the battle.  We have also landed several rainbows and browns in the 18-23″ range and a few big brookies in the 16-18″ range.

The fish are eating a variety of flies including:  most junk food patterns (i.e. San Juans, Eggs, Y2K, etc.), Large Stoneflies (Double Bead Stone, Lowe’s V-Rib Stone, Brown Marvins), Midges (Black, Red, Olive and Purple Zebra Midges, Griffiths Gnats, WD Flash Wing in Red, Black or Olive, Brassie in Red, Copper or Green, Dries (BWO, Para BWO, Adams, Para Adams, Tan Caddis).
