Hello all! We hope that all of you are making the most out of these cold winter months and like us, are preparing for another great fly fishing season in the High Country of North Carolina.
With our current weather conditions, there is not really a ton of fly fishing to be had. However, with that being said, there has been a fairly solid wild trout bite on some of the smaller streams surround the Boone and Blowing Rock area on warmer days. If you are willing to brave the bone chilling cold of February, there is undoubtedly some fishing to be had if you play your cards right.
I have included below a few pictures as an end of our 2014 season recap. This fall was stellar to say the least. We saw a great number of montster fish caught locally, as well as on the South Holston and Watauga Rivers in East Tennessee. One of the better fish that we saw this fall was a 27inch wild brown that was caught in East Tennessee (pictured below).
If you're anything like we are here at Due South Outfitters, I'm sure that you are greatly anticipating getting back on the water. No worries... spring is near! Starting the first week in March, the North Carolina Wildlife Resources commission will begin restocking Delayed Harvest Streams in North Carolina. These streams will be loaded with huge amounts of very eager fish. A few delayed harvest streams that are in a close proximity to the Boone, Blowing Rock and Banner Elk region include the Watauga River, in Valle Crucis, Wilson Creek and also the New River section of DH which is located in Todd.
