I had some time off this week and spent most of it fishing some different streams in Haywood and Swain counties, plus Cherokee on the way home. Foe several years, I've wanted to fish the Tuckaseege river and explore some of the Pigeon river watershed. I enjoyed the Tuck' with its different water and sections. This river gets pounded though. Licsence plates from a lot of different places. The fish would be looking up around 8:00 till about 10:00 and then nymphs were the best choice.Then about 6:30 till 8:30, it was dry flies again. I believe I caught more brook than anything else. This is, of course, a stocked DH river. Never saw a fish bigger than one pushing about 16" but they were all fun. They need rain over there too. The best day of the week came when I ventured over to look at the Pigeon. It too is a DH stream. Beautiful stream in a out of the way area. I lost count of fish that day.....all dry flies. Some other fisherman were around, but not many. I wanted to go back my last day but I let a 75 mile round trip at $3.15 a gallon stop me and shouldn't have. I'm still amazed at the attitude of some people that don't care about the special regs on our streams. Some of the locals seem uncaring. A great weather week even though we need rain. My campsite wound up being on the Tuckeseege across from where the train wreck scene was filmed in the movie 'The Fugitive' The guy who ran the campground said they used him as a extra in that scene. On the way home I fished the Nantahala in the middle of the day and caught a few. In October I believe I'll make the trip back to Haywood county.
