The Thaw Begins

Here’s a quick streamside report. High Hooch tribs are open, but cold with some shelf ice along the banks. Spoilcane was 39F an hour ago.

I’m here on Smith DH now (Monday at 4PM), which is open and 42F. Folks are having good luck with Xmas stockers on buggers and eggs. Here’s a pic of Matthew from Marietta with a fat brookie he landed while I watched.

The Hooch in town is open. You can get the latest river water temps off its USGS gauge in Helen.


For warmly dressed folks, the fishing has been decent. It will only get better as we warm up through the week. Follow the sun and hope for water temps above 40.  Enjoy your holiday week.

Unicoi Outfitters: Friendly. Local. Experts.
