Default Chattooga DH

I was able to fish the Chattooga DH with Hillis today. It was an absolutely beautiful day and we had a great time. The river was loaded with Fly fisherman in almost every hole but we still got into some. Hillis caught a pig brookie and I caught two of the better browns that I have caught on the tooga.

Thanks for the company Hillis.

Here is a video from today

Kevin, absolutely great day on the Chatooga yesterday! I enjoyed fishing with you. Great video. Congrats on the fish you caught, including a couple of beautiful large Browns. The Chatooga was absolutely beautiful. The water was crystal clear, and the weather was perfect. Prowler's candy corn fly, black micro wooly bugger, black leach, and soft hackle worked for us.

Default Great Perspective!

Chatooga is lookin a lil low but the fish don't seem to mind. Looks like it was a really good day on the water. What were the air/ water temps, or what did it feel like to you?

The temp was a little over 60 I think. Not sure what the temp of the water was but it was COLD. Hillis can probably answer that better than me since he went for a late morning swim.

I almost went for a swim. I stepped off a rock into deeper water, but fortunately the water did not go above the top of my waders. However, I had to reach arms length into the water a couple of times to retrieve my fly from the bottom and yes the water was cold.

Glad you only went wading for a bit; not like the AMI eh?

I'm heading up there for the first time to camp and fish Friday and Saturday. That video isn't helping my impatience to hurry up and get there.
