Newbie here, looking to spend Sunday on the Tellico/North River tomorrow. I has hoping to find someone with a bit of experience on those rivers to give me an idea what I'm missing. After two trips to that area I have yet to catch anything. I thought I would wait until DH until I gave it another shot.

thanks everyone.

Foureyes, be aware that this is hunting season in that area. You don't say if you are camping or not. Camping spots may be hard to come by, so have a plan b. Let us know how you do and good luck. Silvercreek

Last Saturday I fished the DH section only. I had one bite on a prince nymph.
I only fished up to Walnut Grove. I quit when it is lunch time, or my back goes out-which ever comes first. The only hunters and dogs I saw were back
at the last market before you enter Tellico. In the past I have caught fish right at the Walnut Grove picnic tables. Try to fish in places where there are
no footprints.

Be careful, river is rolling at around 600 cfs. I doubt you should be wading.
