WNC Smallmouth and North GA Trout Report

I spent the past several days fishing for smallmouth in WNC. Aside from the storms, the bite is picking up. Most fish are being caught on streamers using various techniques, however the topwater bite is picking up. Its just a matter of time before all the fish are looking up. We are putting good numbers in the boat every trip, so if you haven’t tried smallmouth on the fly, I highly recommend it. Especially if you like fishing dry flies! Once the topwater bite takes off, we fish poppers like dries and the fish are all over them.

Here are some pictures from recent trips.

This is what a musky can do to a smallmouth!

On another note,I had the pleasure of guiding the Weitz family from Atlanta. Kent Klewein and myself floated them down the Toccoa River in Blue Ridge, GA this past Sunday. Fishing was great, we hooked up on some nice fish right out of the gate. Kent was able to put Brad Weitz on a 25 inch male rainbow. For those who aren’t familiar with the Toccoa, there was a major fish kill last year as a result of dam repairs. Well it is rebounding nicely, and hopefully it will surpass the way it use to be. But for now she is fishing pretty damn good.

One happy client! Toccoa River Rainbow
