Watauga River

Techniques 

Double Nymph Rigs, Dry and Dropper, Dry, Streamer

Seven-day forecast 

There is a little rain in th forecast. Highs in the 60s and 70s. Typical spring weather in the Southern Appalachians. The TVA is running a morning water release schedule right now. It is not convenient for wade fishermen, but they can fish low early and go back to the upper river in the afternoon. Float fishermen are in better shape as they have the flexibility to fish high water. Caddis are coming soon. Fish are already eating the pupate. I expect they will be out by mid next week if not earlier.
