1.) It has been a great day across the Carolinas, with widespread 70's and no rain (although rain would be fine with me). Tomorrow will be another repeat, so a good end to the work week.

2.) Speaking of rain, we are really in need of it. Up in the mountains, it is getting harder and harder to fly fish, as the streams are getting lower with every USGS water data report. Right now, the Davidson River over in the town of Brevard, is flowing pretty steadily at 26 cfs, with the average for today being around 103 cfs. The Tuckasegee River is at 264, and it should be around 361. Water temps are on the cool side, so the trout are happy with this. If you do venture out in the coming days, I would still wear waders, even though the air temp is in the 70's, the water is still very cold. Most anglers have had luck with droppers (Stimulators, Wulffs, etc), along with any small beadhead nymph. Since the water is low and clear, use 6x, and stick to those riffles and runs. This time of year, the trout are congregated in this area, looking for anything that looks like a bug. Seams, which is where the fast current meets the slower current, is also a great option right now. Make sure the trout don't see you, and the fish should pounce on any fly, as long as it is presented well.
