Yeah I would agree, the Hiwassee should be fine right now, a little cold for the trout's liking, but the Hiwassee is a tailwater, and it stays a little warmer than surrounding streams. It's also pretty high so you may get away with 4x or 3x tippet....maybe....I would still stick with 5x and 6x to be safe. Try Black stonefly nymphs in sizes of 8-12. Streamers (Sculpins, Zonkers, Clousers, bucktails, Kelly Galloup's Zoo Cougar, e.t.c) should work for those big 'Wassee browns. Hope you catch a bunch and tell us how ya did.
