  • Does rain stop you from a blue line trip?

    It rained overnight. Have plans to take a buddy up to dicks creek/water creek area and see if we can fish for the stockers there.
    Anyone know if it will be too high or too brown/muddy to fish? I checked the gauges for Chattahoochee near helen and notely river and chestatee, and they all show a little up tick, but not sure what that will look like in real life you know?

    I'm thinking if we get there and it's too high, we could start hiking and maybe the further up we go the clearer /more receded it will get. I saw someone else's small stream report recently where they said "didn't rain last night, and didn't rain this morning, so I knew I'd be good." That's not the case for me this time and I'm wondering if we shouldn't drive the hour and a half before be figuring it out.

    Thanks for any thoughts. (Real time stream info would be AWESOME if you live more in North georgia )

    Edit to add: Dicks and waters are not blue lines obviously..I was more referring to if we get there and it's muddy, should we decide to start hiking and find some bluelines/ feeder creeks because they'd be more likely to be clear?

      Here is a pic of Dicks on Thursday of this week. Although you can't tell it from the pics, water seemed a little low. A fellow fisherman on the stream said the same thing. But it did not seem low going over the falls. Water was clear, and you could see fish in the water, but they were not biting. Dicks was stocked yesterday, so maybe the bite is on now. Good luck!

          When I get to a stream up north and find it too stained for my liking, thatís when I break out the 2wt and hit some blue lines! Almost always have a good bit of luck, better than I would have on stained water anyway.

            This spring and summer I have fished so much during or after the rain that I've got to where I can hardly stand fishing bluebird skies. The bite is just so, so much better when the water is a little high and stained.
