1.) It has been for the most part, a half way decent day weather wise across the Piedmont and mountains, albeit a few low level clouds and extremely short lived showers. The majority of the day has comprised of a mostly cloudy skies. Tomorrow will be cool and partly cloudy; or partly sunny; (Never have figured out the difference between the two.) Despite cooler temps for tomorrow, the weekend is shaping up to be EXCELLENT for a weekend of fishing. Temps will be just where they should be for a trout's liking-(upper 50's at night, lower to mid 70's during the day). Don't be shocked if you come across a Light Cahill, Yellow Sally, or something that is usually hatching in the middle of May. If you are fishing in high elevation backcountry streams, say, higher than approximately 3,500 ft, take the Quill Gordons and Blue Quills, just simply because the higher elevations usually can't support hatching Quills prior to April due to the unpredictable weather in March (sometimes into early April.) If you're a smallie fanatic, the water temps should start to warm and the bronzebacks will start chasing streamers and bass bugs. For now, a crayfish imitaion, a Woolly Bugger, or even a Zonker fished relatively slow should catch them. Smallmouth bass spawn in the Spring when the water temps reaches the 60 degree mark. When the water temp reaches a constant reading of 58-72, the smallies will become increasingly active. To sum it all up, dust your favorite smallie rod off, and tie up a few smallmouth flies...The season is FAST approaching.
