1.) If there are any visitors from the Tennessee, N. Alabama, North Carolina region, storms are really cranking right now. There is currently a massive outbreak of tornadoes in middle and eastern TN. 30 people are injured and 2 are now dead from a large tornado that plowed through the town. If you're residing in western NC like I am, the storms and possible twisters are slowly progressing across the mountains. We've had numerous severe storms roll through the So. Piedmont over the last few hours, basically all taking the usual I-85 route. A decent size stoem just exited our county, and is now producing golf ball size hail...The storms will likely continue on through 2 am or so, and eventually stable air will start pouring into the region. If you have a NOAA weather radio, it's always a good idea to keep it on..Especially when storms are imminent at night.
2.) After all of this rain, stream levels will rise across the south. Water temps will also rise due to the warm rain. If you plan on wetting a line over the next few days, take some Quill Gordons, Blue Quills, Black Caddis, and small BWO's. If all is calm and the bugs aren't hatching, tie on a Royal Wulff, Trude, or any other attractor dry. Nymphs will likely out fish dries, so make sure you have March Brown Nymphs, small Caddis larvae patterns, PT nymph, Prince Nymphs, Copper Johns and attractor nymph patterns such as a Lightning Bugs, Bloody Marys and San Juan Worms. With the stream levels rising and becoming stained, try a Woolly Bugger, Zonker, Slumpbuster, or your favrite sculpin pattern.
