Well, not exactly Spring-like temperatures, but the mid 50's today, mid 50's tomorrow and upper 50's to low 60's Sunday isn't bad at all! Unlike the past few weekends, snow is not forecasted. In Asheville, the last time 50 degrees was hit was on January 27th. Quill Gordons will sometimes hatch in late February when temperatures warm suddenly. I don't know if that will happen this year. The water is still going to be cold, despite warmer air temperatures. I've heard that water temperatures need to be at 50 degrees or higher for 3 consecutive days to start seeing quill Gordons. Still, Spring is just around the corner. Stock your boxes now with spring time flies. Quill Gordons, Blue Quills and Black Caddis are primarily the hatches to watch for as we head into March and April. Once May rolls around, the hatches are endless. Here in NC, May brings with it Light Cahills, March Browns, Sulphurs, Green Drakes, Caddis, Giant Stones (Pteronarcys), Midges, etc. Eventually terrestrial insects such as grasshoppers, ants, crickets, beetles, and inchworms, are sought after by trout. We still have to get through the rest of February and probably into mid March though. Snow and cold is still looming in the long range forecasts, so don't hang up your coats just yet.
