Fishing Status: Good (warm temps=fair fishing)

1.) If you have ventured outside today, you probably know full well that it has been WARM. Temps here in Kannapolis have hovered around 73 degrees. This Winter has been unusual in terms of weather. We were down in the upper 20's for highs on Wednesday with 3 inches of snow, and then the southwest winds started cranking and we're up in the 70's. Tomorrow is going to be another great day for fishing.

2.) If your favorite trout river is the Davidson, AKA the "D", all I'm going to say is have at it...conditions are looking good. The water temps are still chilly, but another day or two of mid 60's in the mountains, and the water will warm. Some of the springtime bugs may start hatching. It's happened before, and it'll probably happen again. The Tuckasegee, Watauga, S./N. Mills River, and much of the GSMNP streams will have some of the best fishing seen since November. Most rivers and streams are flowing pretty low, not too bad, but a little low. Like mentioned before, springtime bugs may make an appearance, so have Quill Gordons, Blue Quills, and Early Black Stones at hand. It won't be much longer until the rainbows start spawning, and fish start looking for eggs from March through May, so there's another thing to anticipate. I've got to get out of town and hit the "D" or the Watauga before Old Man Winter returns (It'll be my luck to have an oppurtunity to go, but in 30 degree temps....). I don't know about the rest of you guys, but I'm ready to throw the tent in the truck and take off to the Smokies. I can already hear the wild brookies calling me.

3.) Thank you for taking the time to stop by and read. Everyone have a good one and tight lines.

TH, great blog you have. I will be following you and have added you to my blogroll.
Glad to hear the weather has warmed up there. I too am into the weather, mainly because of cyclones but also fishing.
Tight lines

Yeah, the snow is great especially up in the drought stricken areas of the mountains.
