It's been good. Most important thing is to get your flies down. Long leaders. Small naturals were best.

If there is any question, get them deeper...

Was there twice last weekend. They must've stocked recently. I caught 17 on Friday morning and 6 Saturday afternoon. Mostly on "junk" flies... y2k, san juan and yellow prince.

I posted pics on the "north georgia rivers" sections under Ami Hwy 53.

Like the Athos said, need to fish it deep. My indicator was probably at least.4 feet above my first fly.

If I feel like I'm not getting my fly deep enough, but I already have a lot of leader below my indicator (usually a thingamabobber) would you add more weight or add more leader? I've struggled to find the right balance... I'm talking about fishing in water that's +4 feet deep, or water that's quite fast and also several feet deep.

If you are pretty sure you're fishing deep enough, I would try to add some weight first.

It has been said that the difference between a good fly fisher and a great one is one more split shot.

Default getting deep

I read an article for fast or deep water add a split shot about a foot below your indicator also use fluorocarbon tippet
