So far the Catawba Tailrace is still fishing good for late May! Tandem nymph rigs and streamers are our go to rigs for high water. Dry dropper and light nymph rigs are the norm on low water. Duke energy seems to like the 10-3 generation, so it’s giving us high and low water scenarios on our floats. The water surge usually slows the bite, but once the water stabilizes the fishing picks back up. We typically hang up running guide trips on the Catawba Tailrace in June, and we resume around Oct/ Nov. So if you want to fish the Catawba, now is the time. Give us a call 828-446-5552.
Chris with a high water brown!
