Chestatee Tribs

Our ol' pal Landon Williams should have been studying for tests on Sunday, but instead did what any self-respecting fly-fishing student would do: went fishing! Here's a brief report:

I fished some Chestatee tributaries on Sunday just for a quick fix before I went back to studying for the day. Air temps and water temps were just about ideal with water temperatures ranging from 49-53 all day depending on the tributary and shade. Bug were hatching from about 10 am on and were thick all day. There were not real large numbers of any particular kind but mayflies seen included size 14 March Browns, 14-16 Hendricksons, and grey and black caddis around a size 14-16. I dredged really early before the sun came up real well on a certain trophy regulations stream with good results but caaught a lot on a 14 yellow stimulator and 14 Parachute Adams but caught just as many on a 16 tungsten bead hares ear 2 ft on a dropper rig once I hit tributaries for wild fish. Enjoy the pics.

Test cramming cretin.

The creeks will be a little high with all the rain we've had the past couple days, but the above-average temps should really have the fish active - should be a great weekend on the water!
