May 19 South Holston River Report

The South Holston continues to fish well as sulphurs dominate the menu.  The Sulphur hatch has been sporadiac but productive. The low water has made for tougher than normal conditions, but persistance can pay off.  The best feeding has been later in the day, especially on bright days.  For those anglers that are on the water early it pays to fish the midge, but I wouldn't wait long to tie a sulphur nymph on.  16 and 18 in brown and olive are getting it done.  Dries have been prroductive as well, especially in the late afternoon and evening.  The hatch has been slowly working it's way up river.  Miiddle and upper river seem to have the most consistent bugs.  Be courteous and have fun.
