1.) Man alive am I glad it's Friday. I have 2 weeks off, so I will be out of town to see family in Tennessee. I may squeeze in a little fishing, but can't tell for sure. I should post a few times during next week, but don't know. If you have the chance, go fishing up in the mountains. It hasn't been this warm since what, Halloween? The water temps are PERFECT right now... most streams are in the 60's, with mid 50's in the higher elevations. Water level is at it's best, and most trout streams are at or a little above average. Here's a few of the popular stream's water levels...

  • Davidson River @ Brevard...119..average is 111 cfs
  • Watauga River @ Sugar Grove...125...average is 140 (not bad at all)
  • Tuckasegee River @ Cullowhee...771...average is 441 (mostly because of the generators
  • Jacob Fork @ Ramsey...32 cfs...average is 38 cfs
  • Nantahala @ Rainbow Springs...249...average is 200
  • South Toe River @ Celo...188...average is 114
  • Oconaluftee River @ Birdtown...720...average is 535
  • Cataloochee Creek @Cataloochee NC...173...average is 97

With all of this "higher than normal" water, use large nymphs and streamers, and watch for BWO's. Also don't be surprised if other bugs hatch out that aren't supposed to due to the warm weather. All of the warmth will come to an end starting Monday, as temps will take a dive to into the upper 30's for highs on Monday. Christmas Eve will be cool with a few showers for the fat guy in red, looks like mid 50's, and Christmas will be dry with mid 50's.

2.) Montana and Richmond play this evening in the FCS Championsip game. I hope Montana will take a win back to Missoula, they've done very well this season.

3.) Finally, the Panthers play on Sunday night in the Meadowlands against the 11-3 Giants. I will be glued to the TV.
