1.) Man, was it cold last night, especially in the pre dawn hours. We did in fact break the old record set Wednesday of 18. Salisbury made it down to 16 degrees, and a few rural areas saw temps lower than that. Some parts of the area made it down to 13 last night!! This is all in Fahrenheit. Charlotte Douglas International read 16 last night, so more 16's than 15's, but it doesn't matter, it was still FRIGID. Boone dipped down to 18, and Grandfather Mountain saw Not as bad tonight as temps will drop to 21. Something's up, if we're seeing mid teens in November. This year will be exciting, as the cold air and precip looks plentiful.

2.) Fishing is not exactly at it's best, especially in the morning. Fish more so around noon, and you may do a little better. Also, the tailwaters are fishing very well right now. Take a trip out to the Watauga River, or even the Clinch, Hiwassee or Holston for better luck. Stick with nymphs (PT's, Lightning bugs, Copper Johns, Hare's Ears e.t.c), until you see any bugs coming off the water. The most active bugs will be the midges, although, if we warm up just a little, and overcast skies dominate the weather, BWO's may work, but don't count on it. As we press into Winter, fly fisherman hang up their gear and trade their fly rods for their fly tying vises. Fishing can still be as good as a mid fall day, if you time it right.

3.) Everyone have a good evening, and more tomorrow. (Panthers play tomorrow against the Atlanta Falcons,so more on that tomorrow as well.)
