Watatuga River Stream Report

Spent Friday April 3 on the Trophy section of the Watauga River.  It was a damp and cool day, the perfect spring fly fishing day.  The morning bite was slower, but still productive.  Early afternoon into evening was lights out.  The baetis, little tan caddis, and a few hendrickson start moving and get the fish going.  The quality of fish seems to get better everyday.  Still catching lots of solid rainbows with a few solid browns thrown in.  Still no Mother's day Caddis. I've opened a few cases along the river to check their status. They still look to be at least a few days to a week off, but we'll see.
