1.) According to the forecasts, rain showers will gradually move into the region, becoming widespread by tomorrow afternoon. The rest of the week consists of highs in the 70's. The month of November looks to be above average for temperatures, then getting colder during the later part of the month into December. If you're like me and you're ready for some cold and snow, you may have to wait just a little while longer. Long range forecasting is nothing more than an educated "guesstimate". You can stab Jell-O to a tree before you can make a 100% accurate long range forecast. If you are anxious to know what may lie ahead during the upcoming Winter here in the state, this is about the best piece of information I know of... http://mattheweast.blogspot.com. Matthew East is one of our meteorologists in Charlotte. The top video is his newly added "2009 Winter Outlook". If you aren't familiar with technical weather maps and charts, don't worry, if you watch the end, he explains each month this winter in detail. (temperatures, snowfall, etc). I had to throw this out there, given that were diving into the colder months (eventually the winter months).

2.) Fishing will be on the good side over the next week or so. Warm temps will keep the fish relatively active (up high, it will be cooler). You can use just about any fly you want right now. For nymphs, Pheasant Tails, Copper Johns, Hare's Ear Nymphs, and most stonefly nymphs will catch fish. For dries, #18-24 BWO's should work, along with #16-18 Elk Hair Caddis, #14 Stimulators, and tiny cream midges. Streamers such as Woolly Buggers, Slumpbusters, Clousers, and sculpin patterns are also working very well, with the large browns lurking in deeper pools. In my opinion, this is the best time of the year to go fly fishing. Cooler temperatures combined with large hungry fish and red fall foliage make for great outings.

3.) I've got a 5 day weekend fast approaching, so I am trying to get out to a stream. May head west and hit the Davidson River, may head north to fish the Stone Mtn DH. It's looking like Monday might be best...
