Hello Ida

How many of you trout anglers have heard the saying, “foam is home?” Well, we’re not sure that it applies very well to the Hooch today. The Helen gauge showed that 2.5 inches dropped quickly this afternoon, and the radar shows one more thick rain-band heading our way soon. So duck and cover, Nacoochee Bend rainbows!

The good news is that Helen’s long-range weather forecast shows a cooling trend. Lower nighttime air temps should drop water temps a bit and fire up our stream and river residents. So look ahead with a smile as we all weather the last round of Ida tonight.

And we will see y’all after this surge subsides.
