2014 has been a great year on our private water in northwest Ashe county. Despite Old Man Winter’s kung fu grip, we have been catching fish. The biggest factor for success is fishing the conditions, because the conditions have been less than ideal. We have dealt with ice, snow, rain, and wind. When the water temps drop, we look for fish in deep slow pools, and we concentrate on perfect drag free drifts. The fish will not move far to eat, so its crucial to make multiple drifts to ensure you hit the strike zone. Dustin and I have ran several trips with great success. Our clients are getting chances to sight fish some of our large rainbows, not to mention they are catching some really nice wild fish to boot. Fish are being caught on double nymph rigs and streamers.
If you have a case of cabin fever and don’t mind the cold give us a call and lets go fishing!
