View Full Version : nantahala flies

03-08-2006, 05:26 AM
I'm going to the Nantahala next weekend (fishing the delayed harvest section) and I'm looking for suggestions on flies and sizes.
Any help at all would be appreciated since I've never fished there before.
Thanks for reading my post, have a good one.

I've spent alot of time in that river and the fish are amazingly keyed in on copper johns. Make sure to bring plenty. I spent some time fishing there this previous month and in very cold weather, usually snowing or spitting sleet. In these conditions the fish were holding very close to the bottom and were congragated in deep pockets. If its as nice there as its suppose to be here, then the fish should be nice and active. I would suggest going early. That area is gaining in popularity. -good luck
