The waterfalls are flowing, the birds are singing, the daffodils are sprouting, the trees are budding and the Ramps (Wild Onions) will be ready for pickin’ come mid-April. Yes indeed, spring has come back to the mountains of Asheville, North Carolina!
The wild trout waters in the Pisgah National Forest and the Great Smoky Mountains and the premier waters of the Davidson River, the South Holston River and Cherokee Trophy water are all fishing great. The catch and release waters of North Carolina’s Delayed Harvest Program have been stocked with great numbers of highly cooperative, hungry trout as well.
Late winter hatches of Little Black Winter Stone Flies, Gray Winter Caddis, Blue Winged Olives, Blue Quills and Quill Gordons are all still in play and the additional hatches of the Hendrickson, March Brown, Tan Caddis and Olive Stoneflies are providing quite a buffet for the Brook, Brown and Rainbow trout. The average daytime air temp is rising to the mid-60’s and with that the average water temp is climbing into the 46-50 degree range making the trout hungrier and more active. We would love to help you cure your spring fever by getting you on the water with a guided fly fishing trip, whether it be a wade trip, float trip or backcountry experience.
