1.) It is going to be a chilly one here in the Piedmont of NC. 47 looks like a low for tonight, and 44 tomorrow night. I know the people out west are rolling their eyes at us... "(44? That's a normal high this time of year here in Colorado.)" I guess after a long, dry, hot Summer, the thought of 44 replacing 95 takes some time to get use to. Speaking of the cold, I have reviewed many sources on the climate outlook for the US. Most forecasters are saying we may have a good year for snow and cold here in the western Carolinas. Even though it's just an outlook based on previous years, it still usually turns out to be surprisingly correct. It's amazing what meteorologists can predict.

2.) Still, there is not really a change in trout fishing right, other than a loss of a few cubic feet of water in most rivers here in the state from yesterday's flows. We are currently in dire need of rain here in NC. The rivers are dropping like a rock, and the fish are just building up their skittish nature, one cubic foot at a time. Fishing the faster pocket water, and riffles will most likely bring some fish to your net. All you need to do is stay low wear drab colored clothing, and use extreme caution when walking in and along the river. Mend your line, and use the smallest strike indicator your fly will will allow. Check out the list of recommended flies for October, over in the right hand column, for fly selection. Most streams will be free of a crowd of anglers, (especially on the weekdays) although, the "D" may have a few fisherman. This will change in approximately 2 weeks when everybody flocks to the streams due to the Fall colors. Anywho, more tomorrow.....Stay warm these next couple of nights.
