Boone area Small Stream report

With lots of rain in Boone of late the rivers have been running high and muddy.  As they begin to drop and clear, the fishing should be very good.  We need the water, as fishing pre rain was tough.  The fish were ultra spooky,  and long casts were required.  The good news is they are very surface minded, so fishing just a dry fly can be very productive.  Expect slower fishing mid day, but morning and evening bites have been good.  Attractor patterns like stimulators and pmx have been effective.  Terrestrials are still a player,  Size 16 black beetles and size 14-16 black ants have been productive.  As we approach fall things only get better.  The recent drop in day time temps has been a big help.
