1.) It was cold here in the Charlotte area. We got down to 33 degrees, when I checked the thermometer at 7 AM. We probably made it to the freezing mark last night as well. Boone dropped to 30 last night, while Asheville went down to 35. Tomorrow will be a few degrees warmer (72), but nothing out of the ordinary. The average first frost for Charlotte is early November, but obviously ma nature couldn't wait another week and a half.

2.) Today is a good day, after the Panthers won yesterday. I'm really glad they took the win.

3.) Fishing hasn't been at it's best here in NC, but you should still have some luck out on the trout stream. The trout are hungry, so really, try what fly you think will work...PT nymphs, Hare's ears, Stonefly nymphs, and so on. We are now getting to that time of year, where nymphs are really the best flies to use, given the cold water. That being said, dries are not completely out of the question, if there are cloudy skies and cool temps...BWO's may hatch out...and the usual midge activity. 5-7x tippet is good, and you generally don't have to beat the early bird, and be on the water at 6 AM...8:45-10:00 is a good starting time due to the cold water. Let the sun reach the surface, and warm the water up a little, before you start fishing. Take a thermometer with you, and take temperatures, and find when the most productive part of the day is.
