Fly Fishing the Tuckasegee River

Posted by on February 23, 2012

This morning I had a few hours to hit the river before opening the fly shop.  Both the East and West for were off so the water was fairly low and clear.  As soon as I got in I noticed several fish rising on what looked like small BWO.  I started off with a dry fly dropper rig consisting of a #14 Parachute Blue Wing Olive with a #16 Frenchie dropper and a #18 Tungsten Just Add Water (Pheasant Tail Variation) dropper.  The majority of the fish came on the Just Add Water fly with a few fish taken on the Para BWO and one nice brookie taken on the Frenchie.  I ended up netting close to 20 fish in just under two hours.
