The size matched and the drifts were okay but just no takers. Do you all have any suggestions on flies, places to fish etc....
In the fall and winter I have had more luck on midges then anything else, small bhpts and split case sulpher nymphs work well also. I'm not great up there but I can hold my own. This is the best I know to tell you. If I knew more I would tell you more. One thing I have found is Rod and Matt Champion at South Holston fly shop are good guys and will shoot you right on what they are eating. Most and I say most locals stay tight lipped when it comes to the South Holston. I hope this has help alittle. There's other on here that might be able to help you more then I have.
