What a spectacular day to be on the water here in Western North Carolina. The weather is absolutely breathtaking, the fish are biting, bugs are hatching and we are beginning to see various blooms and leaves on the trees. Spring is definitely here.
Today, I guided Sarah and Diedre on a 3/4 day wade trip on the Tuckasegee Delayed Harvest and Sarah’s father John tagged along as well. The young ladies are in from Oklahoma and enjoying their spring break vacation here in the mountains. We started out on South River Rd. and found success almost as soon as we stepped into the water. Both Sarah and Diedre landed several nice brook trout and rainbows, while John picked a few bows and a brown. Sarah was rigged up with a #8 Olive/Brown Hot Head Marvin with a #16 Just Add Water dropper and she fished the a deeper runs while Diedre was working the shallow riffles with a dry dropper, #14 Para Adams with a #16 Just Add Water. Diedre picked up four or five nice rainbows on the Just Add Water in a span of 9-10 minutes.
For the afternoon we decided to move down to North River Rd. just above Carol’s Cabins. Sarah picked up several more rainbows on the #16 Just Add Water and one or two on the Marvin while Diedre picked up one or two more brook trout. John even picked up one or two on a dry fly. Another perfect day on the water with beautiful weather and great company. This is why we love doing what we do.
