Toccoa River Delayed Harvest Report

This in courtesy of Vance Hendon:

Al, Ronnie and I fished the Toccoa DH this past Saturday. It was a GOOD day on the water. Although bit cold to start; water temp at 8:15 AM was 37 degrees. Air temp had to be below 32 because our guides iced up with in minutes of starting. We caught fish right off the bat, we started at the right at the " stocking hole" above the two lower islands, got a couple there but not a lot of action so we went on down to fish around Piney and Maple Island. We had a good catch rate all day. All three of us landed at least one 16" + fish, with Al getting one that measured out at 17 inches. All fat Bows. As the day wore on the fish seemed to congregate in some of the warmer places and got a little spooky, but they still hit. Caught most on dark Hares Ear flashback, some on Olive Woolly Bugger, and most of the afternoon fish came on a Bettis type fly, dark bead head with dark body and a little green flash in it. Between the 3 of us, we landed some where in the neighborhood of 25-30 fish. As I said it was a GOOD day on the water.
