Tellico River Report

As many of you are aware, judging by the phone calls, the Tellico River was in flood stage last week due to receiving 8 inches of rain over a 3 day period. I'm happy to report that all is well now and the fishing is back on track.
The delayed harvest section continues to fish well. Water temps have been in the low to mid 40's throughout the day and the fish are back on the feed. I would suggest going in the early afternoon after the sun has had a chance to warm things up. You may even get in some dry fly activity as the baetis and small winter stones have been a favorite food recently. Nothing like rising fish in December!
If you do go, remember to wade carefully and bring some extra clothes just in case. Be careful and enjoy!

Brook Trout in the News



Here are a couple of articles about our only native trout species and some of the hardships they endure. This should drive home the importance of ethical catch and release practices among all fishermen.
