Fishing Report: 10/4/2022

Trout Fishing Report courtesy of Matt Morrison, Guide at Cohutta Fishing Company Small Streams: Fall fishing is here! Cooler nightly temperatures and during the day have cooled the smaller streams down. The fishing has been great from the stocked streams all the way to wild trout water. Some October caddis are already coming off along with smaller Tan Caddis and Blue Winged Olives (BWO’s). On stocked streams, like Coopers Creek or Rock Creek, Pat’s Rubber Legs, Pheasant Tail variations, and Rainbow Warriors have been the most productive flies. On the wild trout streams, dry flies like a size 12 Elk Hair Caddis or Stimulators in orange have been great. If the fish are a little reluctant

Fishing Report: September 1st, 2022

The Toccoa Tailwater has been fishing well due to the cooler nights and overcast, rainy days that we’ve had on and off for the last two weeks. Water temperatures are good but a bright, sunny day will put us right back in to summer tactics and put the fishing down mid-day. We’re still seeing tan caddis on the river and have been doing well on streamers and stoneflies on those awesome overcast days. While we have been getting rained on a decent amount, water levels are receding quickly. When things get low and clear, downsize your line and lengthen your leader. Be sure to watch the Blue Ridge Lake generation schedule daily - TVA will begin

Notes from the Field

So, I've put on few. Happens to the best of us. My wife wanted to go walking near the house and volun-told me to go with her. The local college near the house has a lake behind it with a two mile walking path, so we headed that way.  After leaving the car we passed a 10 year old boy fishing alongside the lake. I asked how the fishing was and he responded, "Not great. I don't have any bait." I told him he should go dig around by a fence line they had just ripped up because he might find some worms there. We continued our walk, but I couldn't stop thinking about that little

Fishing Report: April 23rd, 2022

The Toccoa Tailwater has been fishing well when the rain doesn't stain the river.  We recieved a good amount of rain in the past couple of weeks.  Usually, it takes a couple of days for the water to clear up to a fishable color.  When it is fishable, we have been catching them on various streamers, nymphs, and even some dries.  Streamer wise, I recommend Sparkle Minnows (size 4-8, Gold/Pearl), Sparkle Yummies (Copper/Yellow or Gold/Copper) and Galloup's Dungeon (size 2, yellow or olive).  Hopper/Dropper rigs with Pat's Rubber Legs (size 6-8 in olive/brown or black) and any hare's ear variations have been producing.  We are still seeing March Browns and Caddis hatching out there as well.
