Good Nymph Fishing, Waters Still High and Dirty in NW NC…
Fri. May 25, 2012….Had a great morning and early afternoon of nymph fishing with two fly rigs, a dead squirrel with a Bead Head Batman nymph dropper. Guided Mike Riddick to a 25 fish day today using them.
We went to fish two other Ashe County waters but they were high and dirty….like so much so it was not safe to wade. Both forks of the New are messed up and it will be a while before any fishing like smallmouth will be productive.
The weather was very hot but water temps were cool, low 50s early on and high 50s to around 60F when we called it a day. Saw a few large sulphurs hatching and also some little yellow sallies.
Guiding Dr Jim Kramer and his friend Brett tomorrow on the South Holston. Hoping for a great day. Have a great weekend!
