Thought I would share some quick pics from the latest trips out on the water. Rainbows continue to be the dominate species of catch, but we are seeing more and more browns take action as of late. I am planning on heading out to some new waters this weekend so stay tuned for a new report. In the meantime enjoy the pics from the last trip!
The fishing is on FIRE!! Don't sit at home and let it pass by! We have made it out numerous times over the past couple weeks to hit some of our favorite spots. We have had very good results! Fish have been cooperating and we continue to find some larger fish. We have been getting in touch with some better browns and the hefty rainbows have not let up. So we got to keep the flies ordered and ready! Enjoy the pics!
til next time

Hello world it has been too long. This is David speaking and
I haven’t wrote a blog post in way too long. Luckily for you, Phil has really been keeping you informed. Unfortunately for me last year was
full of CPA and not nearly enough Dreamcatching. But this year has started with
much more promise. I have been able to make it up to the Hiwassee a couple of
times now and to the North and Tellico once. Although I can’t quite keep up
with my DreamCatcher partner and fish master, Phil, it sure is nice to get out
on the water and enjoy the beautiful creation that God has given us. I am
reminded every time I am out there of the incredible beauty that surrounds us
and how I am but a speck in all of it.
It really has been nice to dust the fly pole off, shake the
rust and enjoy the greatest activity there is, some FLY FISHING! I have had
some great luck this year on the Hiwassee already. The river is amazing as
always and the fishing is better than ever. It is crazy to think leaving the
Hiwassee after 10 fish is a slow day but
that is what it has been like. I have caught a number of larger rainbows than
usual and probably my largest rainbow earlier this year. I have a picture of it
down below. I also caught a nice brown as well. It really has been crazy good
fishing. Today, I went for 5 hours and caught around 30-40 fish. I stopped
counting after 6 in the first 20 minutes. There were numerous times were I
caught 4-5 fish in the same amount of consecutive casts. It was incredible.
Mostly I have been catching rainbows but was able to catch 3 browns today.
Anyways I hope to get out on the river more. I have started
doing morning half day trips and really have done well. I am proud to be back
doing some DreamCatching again. I hope you enjoy my pictures below. Til next
I had a chance to get into some new territory this past weekend; although it was quite hard to leave the Hiwassee when it has been fishing so well! White capped mountains greeted our early morning arrival to the North Georgia Mountains. It was my first experience of trout fishing in Georgia and it did not disappoint. Fishing left some to be desired early as the temps were frigid and the trout were staying pinned down. But as the afternoon came along fish starting getting real active. I managed a number of rainbow trout throughout the afternoon, mostly small but still fun. As the day progressed toward evening the dry fly fishing the opened up. Trout would attack in every suspecting fishhole with wreckless abanodon. It made for a fun day of fishing. I hope to make it back there soon. Check out the pics.
The weather has been playing games with us lately in East TN. It will warm up for a couple days of the week only to drop again and remind us of the chills of winter. All things considered, Spring is officially here! Water temps have risen, insect activity has picked up, and the trout are active! Been out and about at least twice a week for the past couple weeks. Managed to land a hefty rainbow in the rain which highlighted the week. Big fish have been ready to feed and I have been more than willing to test the elements for the chance. I recently picked up a new Winston Rod and teamed it with the Lamson Guru fly reel. I have been really pleased with the results. The rod cast fluently and effortlessly and it is incredible accurate. Look forward to getting my hands on more of these rods in the future. Here are some pics from the last couple weeks...
