UPDATED EVERY FRIDAY: July 13, 2012
Water conditions are going to be less than ideal for fishing this week. Water is currently 2-4 ft. above normal and muddy. Visibility is little to none. Water temperature varying in the 70′s.
Looking at the French Broad this fine Friday morning was like looking into a tall glass of chocolate milk.
Its a great week to tie some flies while the water clears up. If you are looking for pointers, check out our classes for fly tying here.
The French Broad and Nolichucky rivers will take about a week to clear up after the rain stops. The Pigeon river should clear up a little faster. Temperatures are expected to be in the mid 80′s with scattered thunderstorms, lows in the mid 60’s.
