Decided to head up to the Tellico and North Rivers on Sunday. I find that I really enjoy fishing them in the winter time, I seem to have the entire river to myself as opposed to fighting for a spot during the stocking period. The water is flowing better than I have ever seen it. I was hoping to get into some wild fish, maybe even a rare Tellico brown, but it wasn't meant to be I suppose. I caught only stockers like this one below, but they were fun to catch. It was a very nice day. I have decided lately that I will spend most of my fishing time this winter and early spring exploring the Tellico-Bald & North Rivers. I can't wait!
