The tellico river is extremely low also. Most of the riverbed is exposed on the lower section as you enter the cherohala parkway, don't expect there to be good water levels anywhere in the mtn. streams right now.
You may want to email tellico angler before going over to those streams for info. I was down there 2 weeks ago at Indian boundary and it was almost dry then.
I was referring to a tellico nymph, but thanks for the info anyways, as I've actually been wondering if any of the other mountain watersheds might be fishable. I guess not.
Brett, as Trevor was saying, I need to tie a "few" Tellicos... Seriously, I go through those flies and consequently the turkey very fast. There are some other patterns I've been wanting to tie more often but always hated to use up my turkey.
I won't be fishing much for a week or two since I've gotta get ready for school. I may run over to hit the Caney near the end of the week for a few hours although I'm not sure. If you haven't tried it, you should come try it in the fall. Fishing can be excellent then. Let me know ahead of time and I can probably try and meet up with you...
right ,tellico nymph. I should have read the other post first. I go through alot of turkey tail also tying those big rubberleg tellicos stoneflies and george nymphs. You need to find a "Turkey hunter" and do some trading. Almost accidently got a grey fox this morning on the way to work, he chased a rabbit across the road in front of me.
BTW, How did the foam hoppers work out west?
that hopper pattern was the only one I used the whole time out there, and it did great! for whatever reason, the hopper fishing was not as hot as I hear it should have been this time of year, but either way, I caught fish with it ... especially on the yellowstone.
