NC DH streams are stocked and ready to go! The state doesn't stock all waters on opening day (last Saturday), but they finished stocking over the course of this week. If you're heading out to a DH stream this weekend, the fish are ready to be caught. Don't be surprised if you see (or better yet, catch) a pig. The state has done an outstanding job of stocking larger fish over the past few years. For the most part, these fish are not educated enough to be overly tough to catch. Generic patterns such as Prince Nymphs, Pheasant Tails, Hares Ears, Zug Bugs, Red Fox Squirrel Nymphs (just to name a few) will work wonders. #14 Stimulators, #14-16 Adams, #14 Royal Wulffs, #14 Elk Hair Caddis are great as far as dries go. If you really want to put a beating on the fish, check out Dave Hise's signature Orvis flies. His Squirmy Wormy, Hise's Hetero-Genius, Medusa, and Eggi Juan Kenobi will drive the fish mad. I've found them to be unbelievably effective on stockers (wild fish fight over them too). Check out the rest of Dave's selection here.
