Foscoe Fishing Company’s Fly Fishing Blog
The Foscoe Fishing Company Blog is the perfect place for us to share our adventures with you. Our guides take great joy in their job (if you were an avid fisherman wouldn’t you like to get paid to do it on a frequent basis?) and recounting adventures of the day is one way to share the joy.
We would also love to hear from you! Feel free to contact us and tell us your story. Send in your pictures, too, we’ll be happy to add them to the blog.
Fishing has picked up and is in full swing. Tennessee is fishing great as we are making many trips to the South Holston and Watauga River. Sulphur hatches are coming off on the holston and the Watauga is producing well also. The small streams in our beautiful mountains are fishing well. The recent rain has left the streams at a perfect level. A dry/dropper rig is the best fit for the small streams. Picking up many fish on either the dry or the nymph is common. The Delayed Harvest Water are fishing well. Be sure to head out there and fish before the Delayed Harvest Regulations will end the first Saturday in June. Follow all regulations and promote catch and release!
Great day on the Watauga with Micky Swaim and John Pense! Had some nice fish come to the boat and even some dry fly activity later in the day. Hope to do it again!
Fishing started out pretty hot for the first part of day on the Watauga then tapered off a bit towards the afternoon but all of the fish caught were nice healthy fish! There were a few caddis moving around and hopefully it wont be too long before the big hatch! The usual midge and beatis bight was the ticket for the day.
Spring is just around the corner in the High Country and if you haven’t had the opportunity to fish the mild winter we’ve had then its time to break out the gear! We are very excited about the upcoming season and we have stocked the shop with the latest and greatest gear of 2012 so be sure and come by to stock up! Fishing has been great due to the warmer weather. Locally the delayed harvest sections of the Watauga river have been fishing well and nice hatches of blue winged olives and midges have kept the fish and fisherman happy! The tailwaters have also been fishing well and some nice fish have been caught on blue wings and caddis using dry and dropper rigs and the usual nymph rigs. Come on up and take advantage of the great fishing the High Country has to offer and check out our facebook page for some great giveaways!
Fishing has been excellent in TN recently. Significant hatches throughout the day of crane-flies and mayflies have made sight fishing with the dry-fly exciting. Nymphing fast water has also been fun producing good size fish. This is always my favorite time of the year to fish, its like the calm before a storm, as soon as October comes so will the other fisherman! Have fun out there and come by and see us at the fly-shop or on the river.
