    Default October Caddis

    Anyone know of streams that have these big bugs? I've had October Caddis on the brain since seeing the nice serendipity pattern in the latest FFR mag. I know they're in the Hiwasssee but what about any of the smaller streams?

    Steve,
    You'll find them on Little River, particularly around Elkmont. They are on the Oconaluftee, Deep Creek, and several others. Good luck.

    I saw 2 of them on the little river above Elkmont yesterday. They were big....size 8 or 10. Never seems to be a very prolific hatch in the smokies.

    Check your camp lanterns around Elkmont in the evenings....those big bugs are everywhere

    I have seen some decent hatches of October caddis on the Tellico. I did OK with a #10 pale orange EHC.
