Appalachian Angler: DH

Welcome back DH!

Ncwrc stocked all of our local streams yesterday - including the Delayed Harvest sections right behind the shop.  Of course lots of numbers were pumped in - around 1800 for the month, but the real treat were the big brooks that were put in!  As always there were lots of anglers catching the hatchery hatch, but with the high water levels it was relatively easy to find your own little spot to enjoy some fishing.  Wooly buggers, prince nymphs, SJW, all of your stocker flies will work well until they get tired of the pressure.  Remember that ALL HATCHERY SUPPORTED are closed for the month of March - so stay out and let those fish thrive this wonderful month.  

We just got our Simms gear in stock at the shop so come by and visit us when we are open.  Give us a call at 828-963-5050, as the month progresses we will be around a lot more.  Our Caddis hatch dates are starting to fill up so make sure to get in touch with us as soon as you can.  Don't forget that March can be a fantastic time to be out on the tailwaters with great nymphing while those Caddis are starting to crawl around, and typically much less crowded!

  1. Thanks for this, went by there today and caught about 8 in 2hrs. Not amazing but I was fishing lazy too. Caught a really nice brook on a pink wooly bugger. The rest were caught on a combo of a eggi juan knobi and a bead head hairs ear size 14.
