    Sycamore is a decent wild rainbow fishery in the lower reaches. There is much better trout water in that area, but Sycamore is a nice scenic little stream. The brookie water requires a pretty good...

    On the tribs, pretty much any dry fly will catch those wild trout. I like Wulff patterns, #12-14, because they're easy to see. Main thing is stealth. Fish from your knees, hide behind rocks, wade...

    Not saying that there aren't any stockers in the Tellico right now. There definitely are. There just aren't nearly as many fish in the river as in previous DH seasons. At least in the stretches of...

    The DH can be hit and miss, and I wonder if the river has even been stocked yet for the DH. I was up there on Saturday as well and saw few or no fish in the usual stocking spots. Last year the DH on...

    Andrew,

    Stealth is likely going to be more important than fly selection up there, especially on the North and the Bald. Any of the dry/dropper combos mentioned by the other posters should produce...

    The North is actually fishing pretty well. I was up there Saturday and the trout readily took dry flies all day long. Water levels are low as mentioned in the other posts, but the water temp is down...

    The North has fished very well this year. Dry fly fishing has been good pretty much all day and excellent as you get into the evening hours. You'll find mainly wild rainbows with an occasional...

    Re: tremont

    There will always be folks that trash these streams. Hard to imagine that mindset, but it seems to be common unfortunately. I try to pick up trash when I see it, but I'm not as diligent about this as...

    Re: Bald River Falls

    Hey Rocky, you old dog! Good to hear from you. I think my days of wet wading in January are about over. My feet start aching just thinking about it! Hope you are doing well. I'm guessing you're...

    Re: Bald River Falls

    I have fished the North a dozen or so times this year and have generally found the fish not to be overly picky. They'll hit just about any dry fly as long as you get a decent deaddrift. I use...

    Re: general flyfishing question...

    Minnow,

    Generally you are going to let your fly drift with the current. That's what natural insects do and that's what the fish will be looking for. Look for the seams where fast water meets slow...
