Delayed Harvest


 and browns

Dana Graves and I went up to fish the Delayed Harvest section of the Green River Wednesday.  The Tuxedo hydro station is running a different schedule, and there was no generated water on this section of the Green between 11am and 9pm.  It was mostly sunny, and probably in the upper 70's.  There was a bit of action on topwater, but not enought to convince me to fish dries.  We nymphed the whole day.   If we had more boss hog stone flies, we could have caught fish ALL DAY LONG! 
Go see Heath Cartee at the Saluda location of Curtis Wright Fly Shop (or the Curtis Wright locations in Weaverville or Asheville) for some Boss Hog nymphs.  The Saluda location is the first fly shop on the way into the mountains on I-26 from Charlotte or Upstate SC.

We lost all the boss hogs we had.  We caught fish on san juans, bitch creeks, and on other stone flies as well.

Dana with a nice brown trout.

Those Delayed Harvest fish will be gone soon after the first Saturday in June, so get out there and catch them while you can.  The Green has some larger angry ones.
