I'll admit it, a very busy schedule has left me no time to blog, fish, or ultimately have a life. Now that things are starting to calm down a bit, I'm hoping to post (and fish) more.

Judging by all of the reports I've been seeing on social media and numerous blogs, fishing is red hot right now. There's a whole list of bugs that are hatching, temperatures are perfect, and the fish know it. Get out and enjoy if you can!

Wild streams

If you want to get away from the crowds, try fishing a nearby wild stream. They're fishing well right now and as long as the drought doesn't get too bad, they'll continue to fish well. Take a small box of dries (maybe a Green Weenie or Tellico Nymph on the side) and start counting fish. Try a yellow Stimulator, Yellow Para Adams, Yellow Elk Hair Caddis, PMX, Trude, or a Turk's Tarantula. Yellow seems to be the color of choice right now.

DH waters

The DH waters were recently stocked and should contain plenty of fish. Most generic patterns will serve you well. Try a #12-14 yellow Stimulator, #16 Elk Hair Caddis, #14-16 Yellow Para Adams, #14-18 Copper John, #14-18 Pheasant Tail Nymph, Green Weenie, Squirmie Wormie, etc.

Send in your NC fish pics and I'll slap them on the THFF Fish Wall!

Gald to see back, have you had a chance to fish any of the streams near you?

Haven't fished since February! It's been a long couple of months, but it looks like I'll finally be standing in a river soon. How's the fishing down there in Bama?
