Default Can I fish tomorrow in the snow and catch anything?

I'm flying over to TN right now for a quick trip; will be staying in Cosby and I have maybe 3-4 hours of daylight tomorrow to fish, but it's supposed to snow. I was thinking about just hiking up Cosby Creek!

Can you still catch fish in the snow? If so, what should I use?

I'm sure it's possible. Don't expect too much in terms of numbers. I'd use a lot of patience... Deep nymphs? and be careful!

At least you'll have your choice of fishing locations.

Have fun.

Snow should not be a problem. However; the wind and leaves in the water will give you fits. I hope you get to fish and make it out safely.

I have fished in the snow several times and have always caught fish. I would use a small black stone fly. Also some ph and grhe. They seem to work well.
