The DH has been awesome. I've been having a lot of success with a wooly bugger (black) or pats Rubber legs with something flashy below that like a 16 or 18 rainbow warrior. Use weight, fish deep. Try the deep runs at the water guage on dial Rd.

Headed to the Toccoa DH tomorrow with a couple of friends. Has anyone fished it recently and can provide an update of how it's fishing? Any dry fly action?

Been catching them on black caddis flies. On warmer days there's usually some good bug action around noon and then again at dusk. If they're rising but not taking your dries throw a caddis pupa at them or swing a soft hackle. The fishing has been great though. Have fun! If you see a tall bearded guy, come say hi.

Fished for three hours on Saturday in the cold rain and managed to catch five. Three came on a #14 tungsten beadhead wooly bugger, olive in color. One came on a pink egg pattern and one on a Red @$$ wet fly. Good luck and enjoy.

I fished it for about an hour this weekend. Saw a lot of fish, but they weren't active. I received some solace from speaking with other folks, a few of whom shared the odor of skunk with me.

I fished Sunday morning from 7:45 to 11:00 and caught exactly zero. Fished from upriver of the water gauge to past the canoe launch. Saw five fish. first time in many moons that I couldn't get a hit on something.

Fished the DH on Sunday afternoon. Hit a small pool where they were rising. Caught 5 on a small black caddis.

The 3 of us hit it hard today from about 9am until 3pm. Fishing was relatively slow but we managed about 25 fish, mostly on small black nymphs. Nothing hatching and no rises. Wind started blowing and stopped anything happening on the surface. The fish we did catch were healthy with gorgeous colors and ran about 9-12 inches. Water is very low and clear.
