Default October Caddis

Anyone know of streams that have these big bugs? I've had October Caddis on the brain since seeing the nice serendipity pattern in the latest FFR mag. I know they're in the Hiwasssee but what about any of the smaller streams?

Default October Caddis

Steve,
You'll find them on Little River, particularly around Elkmont. They are on the Oconaluftee, Deep Creek, and several others. Good luck.
Hugh

I saw 2 of them on the little river above Elkmont yesterday. They were big....size 8 or 10. Never seems to be a very prolific hatch in the smokies.

I have seen some decent hatches of October caddis on the Tellico. I did OK with a #10 pale orange EHC.
