It's going to remain rainy and dreary through Christmas Day across the south. A conveyor belt of storm systems will make for a soggy couple of days. Get ready for rising rivers if you plan on heading out for a day of fishing. The majority of the streams and rivers in WNC are at normal levels, but that will likely change as rain filters into the region over the next few days. Watch out for BWOs, as the dreariness sometimes brings them out. I'd use your typical nymphs until the rivers start to rise. Pheasant Tails, Princes, Hare's Ears, Lightning Bugs, Micro Mays, and Zug Bugs (amongst other choices) should work. Try your favorite streamer when the water rises. Zonkers, Woolly Buggers, Clousers, and Matukas being examples. Cast to the opposite bank and slowly strip your streamer of choice back. Get a rythym going. You know, strip, strip, strip, stop, strip, strip, etc. Dead drifting your streamer can be deadly as well.

Good luck, and send in those fish pics for the THFF Fish Wall!
