Upper West Fork and Middle Prong of the Pigeon with Hookers Fly Shop guides Jason and Clint

Beautiful Brookie on the Upper West Fork of the Pigeon

Yesterday, Hookers Fly Shop guide Clint Holcomb and I  fished the Upper West Fork and the Middle Prong of the Pigeon.  We came in on the Blue Ridge Parkway down to 215 and began on the Upper West Fork.  On a side note, the color along the parkway is really beginning to show and should be peaking in the next week or two.  We fished about half a mile of stream with only a few brookies brought to the net.  The water levels were good and crystal clear, so 6x and 7x leader and tippet was a must.  I had one nice brookie come up to a #12 Tan Caddis and another  smaller brookie on a #14 Red Lucent Lightning Bug.  We decided to drive on down to fish the lower section of the Middle Prong just off of 215.  There we brought close to a dozen fish to the net, including the nice brown pictured below.  Most fish were taken on #12 Tan Caddis or #12 Yellow PMX.  Another fine day on the water with Hookers Fly Shop.
