Davidson River in the rain

With all the recent rain, I am left with few fishing options. So I decided to hit the Davidson for some high water action. I managed several fish, but the biggest of the day(a 20 plus inch Rainbow) was a bit camera shy.   All this rain should replenish the ground water supply, which will benefit the streams and rivers over the coming months. If you are looking to target big trout, bad weather is your friend. The big boys tend to let their guard down and feed when the water comes. Big streamers and heavy nymph rigs will get the job done.

The Watauga and South Holston Rivers should be shaping in a few days, reports to come. Wilson Creek and other Delayed Harvest streams were stocked last week and spring is around the corner. If you are interested in a wade or float trip, now is the time to book!

    I was looking through old blog posts while the wife was shopping today and ran across the report from my first trip on the D. That rain was crazy but so was the fishing during it.
