  • Giant Toccoa Browns...

    Well I'm off to the Toccoa where my guide has promised huge browns. Well he promised browns, or was it bows and browns, or was it we will be fishing and if you're any good we will probably catch a fish or two?

    Anyway tomorrow promises to be a day of fishing and that means its going to be a great day!

    Should I catch something I will do an update.

    I hope everyone has a great weekend.

        Well it was exactly as promised. We fished starting at 7:15 this morning. Dang it was cold. First fish of the day was a beautiful 16” native brown. Big beautiful fins and color. Day was already a success. We then caught 14 rainbows all between 10”-16”. Then around ��3:30 landed a 21” brown. Beautiful fish and well fought dance before landing. When I get to a computer tomorrow I will upload the photo. Ended the day with two more browns in the 17” range. Just a fabulous day on the water. Got feeling back in fingers about 35 minutes after getting out of water.

                  The best guide I have ever had, Kory Chastain. He guides for me here in GA and Idaho.

                    I've used Kory once - he is the best I've used as well.

                      Great guy also. Generous with his fishing knowledge, even when sharing it with a non-client.

                        Congrats on the fish! Beautiful!

                        I did my first Tocoa tailwater float on Sunday after the release ended around 11. It was cold and overcast, and I didn't do quite as well... I almost exclusively fish with a euro nymphing setup, so the dry dropping we did was not very comfortable for me. Oh well, guess I'll have to practice a bunch before my next trip!

                          We must have just missed each other. I think we got in at the dam around 10:45. We had a dry fly that was really the strike indicator as there was not a take on it the whole day. As for the droppers they were being change frequently. The best were an emerger and anything around a size 12 or 14 with legs.

                          We finished around five at Curtis Switch.
