Default Brown Trout Day!!!

32 degrees this morning, water at 46 and upon arriving I must admit- I was having second thoughts about fishing today.

Met Frank at Hiwassee Anglers and after checking in with Dean at 7:30 this morning, decided to load the drift boat up and commit to a 4 hr. float.

Snow was everywhere!!

Threw streamers, nymphs, dry and then had to break out the secret weapon which thankfully for Frank...I had an extra.

The action was non-stop. 15 to the hand at least and all were excellent in health and size.

Today was my first day at the oars and must say I have a new respect for any guide out there with sticks in his hands making a living!!

Caught both Browns and rainbows and must say it was an excellent day fishing with a good friend.

Surprised to see all that were fishing today 15 -20 on the bank, in stealth mode all had fish in hand as we floated.

Observed one young otter and a Giant Red Headed Woodpecker.

Thank You,
