1.) The rain is starting to taper off as the day carries on. Some places received an inch and a half, some places received only about .15 inches of rain. I know the mountains got enough precipitation to raise some stream levels to average, but about a day or two from now, they will be back to the low water levels they were at prior to the rain. The Davidson River at Brevard is at 38 cfs, so nothing substantial, but it's better than nothing. The Tuckasegee is at 580 cfs, and the average is at 955 cfs. The larger rivers are rumored to be fishing very well right now. Those Rivers include the Tuck, Hiwassee, Holston, Clinch, French Broad, and Watauga. If you get to the stream and the water is high and muddy, put on some heavy tippet, and tie on a big gaudy streamer and hang on. If I were you, I would go and fish the Boone Fork up on the Parkway in Boone, to see some fall foliage. Speaking of Fall foliage, the peak up in the higher elevations (4,500-6,600) should see the peak in the next 3-6 days. After that, the color creeps down the mountain and eventually into the lower elevations. Saturday looks spectacular for a day of angling up in the high country as temps will range from the upper 60's to the low 70's, with sunny skies. Try Copper Johns, green weenies, PT nymphs, and so on. Experiment with your flies to nail that specific one the trout want. Fishing this evening, there may be some BWO activity, with the cloud cover today.

2.) Accuweather's 15 day forecast is calling for low 30's and mid to upper 50's on the 22nd and 23 here in Kannapolis. I'm ready for it.

3.) More later
