Watauga River

Tip of the week 

Double nymph set ups and dry/dropper rigs are working well in the Delayed Harvest Sections/Hatchery Supported Sections. The fish are getting smarter each day since they have been stocked. Try mixing up your flies with smaller nymphs and possibly midges under a bigger nymph. Some dry fly action is picking up with small caddis, adams, and bwo's. Wild Fish are scattered throughout the river.

Seven-day forecast 

Weather: mid 70's, humid with isolated T storms
