just sitting here taking in all the talk on the sulphur hatch. I put next week on the calendar for vacation last October, so I can't change it. I'm still hopeful that at some point next week, there might be some wadeable water. I'm pulling the camper to North Carolina to start the week, and will keep up with the generation day by day. At least the water in the mountains will be in good shape to start with.

Carolina Boy.
I plan on fishing the Davidson for the most part, with at least a day on the other side of the BR parkway, fishing the west fork of the Pigeon. May try a day on North Mills as well. Never tried on Looking Glass creek, that's been on my mind too. Any suggestions ?

The fish and bugs will be fine, what wiped out the sulfurs was the excessive siltation caused by lack of generating several years ago. Mayflies survive massive runoffs each year out west, and with little light reaching the bottom they will hold off hatching until the water drops out a little.

No one panic.

Thumbs up

Thanks for the insight! I am trying to learn more about entomology and the effects of environmental conditions... Sometimes it is hard to relate my reading to the actual conditions.

The Clinch even at high flows is very placid and the bugs will still hatch during those flows. Heck you can even catch rising fish as well during that time. It will be no different whenever the water drops out, and I look forward to getting on the river soon.

I was hoping to get on the water Wednesday evening around 4:00. However, TVAs predicted releases show 2 or more all day Wednesday. Maybe Thursday will be better. Once Friday gets here you won't see me anywhere near water. I will let the Memorial Day Crazies have it....

Midweek next week will probably be more likely.

Wolf,

Tell them the truth... all bugs will be gone and no one should waste their time getting on the clinch for the next 50 years.
