1.) Cold temperatures this morning greeted all of us here in the Piedmont. The official temperature for Charlotte early this morning was 42. It looks as if we may hit at least 45 tonight, if not lower than that (42-44). It is time to take out those jackets, and dust off those waders, because temps are changing rapidly. The mountains are expected to make it to the lower 30's tonight. Frost, I know, frost-(the first of the season, by the way) is supposed to settle into the mountains tonight. The worst frost will of course hit the highest of elevations, so not everyone will have to defrost their windows. This will definately wipe out the grasshoppers, and terrestrials up in the high country, so it is about time to put those terrestrial patterns up until next Summer. Below is a weather message from the NWS in Greenville-Spartanburg.

2.) The trout are loving this cold weather, but they aren't to pleased with the low water flows, which are still WAY down. WE NEED RAIN!!! Maybe we need to try a different rain dance, because this one doesn't seem to be doing anything. Anyway, like I said above in section 1, the frost up in the mountains will probably kill most of the grasshoppers, so really us fly fisherman will have to stick with small nymphs and maybe, a BWO hatch on a cloudy dreary day, (which judging by the 10 day forecast, this doesn't seem logical.) When fishing, think PT nymphs and BWO nymphs, and you should get into some fair fishing.

3.) More later.
