1.) It's hot enough to cook an egg on the road...Downright hot across the southern US. Temps have hit the lower 90's here in Charlotte, and the lower to mid 80's in the high country. At 4:oo, the temperature read 92 degrees. Average this time of year ranges from 74-76. Tomorrow will be another hot day, all thanks to a pre-summer heat wave. The dog days of summer are fast approaching. I am leaving Kannapolis at 5:30 in the morning..(AGGHH) and heading over to Goldsboro, NC; about a 3 1/2 hour trip. There is a huge airshow over there, including the Blue Angels at Seymour AFB. The south winds will be kicking up, allowing the smoke from the Myrtle Beach wildfires to drift over towards Goldsboro. In fact, folks living in Richmond county, over to Fayetville, and on up to the Triangle will likely smell/see smoke. Devastating and MASSIVE wildfires occuring in Horry County, SC.

2.) As of lately, I have seen tons of inchworms, ants, beetles, and a few grasshoppers. It's about safe to say, the fish will be willing to grab a terrestrial fly pattern right now. Warm daytime temps along with cool-warm nights brings out the land bugs. It's still a bit too early for the hoppers, but we are about to undergo the transistion into May, so at least make sure your terrestrial selection is broad and ready to go. The heat makes waders seem impossible to wear, wet wading? Err....maybe, the water has only been exposed to warm temps for a few days. Backcountry "bluelining" for wild Appalachian Brook Trout is going to be SPECTACULAR for the next few days. Most fish up high on the wild streams will nail a small attractor fly, beetle, inchworm pattern, or any other dry.
