I will be heading up to Cataloochie Thursday the 27th with my buddy coming up from the keys and my daughter. This will be are first trip to this area and I am looking for a little advice information about the area. Don't need any secret spots....just a little general info for this area at this time of year would be helpful.

Lots of water, lots of different types of water, easy access. 2 or 3 of the main tributaries are worth checking into. Caldwell, Palmer, and Rough Fork all usually fish well. No real secret flies this time of year. You may see a few October caddis, and maybe a few BWO but not enough for the fish to become selective on them. Standard attractor patterns like orange stimulators, EHC, and parachute adams will work fine. Droppers can be any of your favorites. I'm going to be over there fishing and scouting that weekend myself. Sometimes big surprises come out from under those rocks.

One other thing I like to tell everyone looking for fishing advice in the park, read Byron and Daniel's daily fishing reports. It doesn't get much better than the information and tips those guys give daily.
