Default Toccoa / Elk River report

Over the past couple weeks... fished the Toccoa tailwaters in Blue Ridge, GA as well as the Elk near Winchester, this past weekend ... Caddis imitations has been the ticket, especially in the morning hours. We didn't get any "real monsters" at either locale but we did find plenty of eager Browns and Rainbows willing to rise-up and take a # 16 EHC.....always fun casting a "dry" over a hungry fish

....Partridge and Yellow might be another good option.

Rainshaker,
We fished the Toccoa this weekend too. It was my first time.Floated to Curtis Switch from the dam. Long float if no generation. We did pretty good on stimulators and griffith gnat's. Caught two really nice fish and the rest were average. Nice stream though.

It was totally new for us as well. It reminded me alot of the Clinch the way you could wade all the way across. We started at the head waters, but soon abandoned that idea after we saw the water temps tapping 72 degrees .

As I mentioned, we caught several average-sized bows using #16 EHC ...a couple using a dropper. We hope to get back down there soon and explore further. My guess is the headwaters will come back to life in the early spring.

Rainshaker...
We had great trip to the Elk yesterday. The weather was FANTASTIC! It was 59 degrees when we got to the dam and I don't think it made it out of the 80's all day. Fishing was good at the dam. I hooked up with 6 before we left on our float downriver. We had fun day. Sometimes the fish cooperated...sometimes not, but as most people were saying....beats being at work!!
I posted a pic of one of the rainbows in the August fish of the month section.

Used BHPT's and a little grey midge all day long.
