Default Sunday fishing in the Cohutta WMA

I'm not sure this quite counts as "small streams", but I drove up to my favorite tributary of the Conasauga again on Sunday (it's my favorite in part because I only know one). I've never had a banner day up there, but Sunday was better than most. I hiked 11 miles and landed five or six 10-ish inch rainbows (and two chubs). Two were on a beadhead stonefly (nymphing with my little tenkara rod), the rest on a tan caddis (on my 2-weight). I had a few other bites, but I don't think any of them were much bigger.
I'm trying to do better about 'keep em wet', which did cost me a couple of photos, but no big deal.

https://photos.app.goo.gl/s2lbNoNpuyzhaU3p1 This was the most frustrating hole: at least four feet deep and 25-30' across, but I couldn't get any interest on the caddis or nymph. I've even tried a streamer there on previous trips, still without any luck.

Awesome, I enjoyed the pictures. I was out there myself this weekend, spent the night Saturday next to the Connie. I did not catch any fish but had fun trying. One of these trips ill figure it out..

Had three big coyotes come full sprint at me before they realized I was a human, they jumped the creek and took off. No coffee needed that morning.

Hope you missed the yellow jackets, they were out this weekend.

Default No coyotes

b5fish, I didn't see any coyotes or yellowjackets (other than myself), but you did remind me of something I meant to include in the post:
I saw a good number of tiny, black stoneflies, less than 1/2" long. Does anyone know what they are?

@MDHerron, how do you drink your whiskey?

Great report. Cohutta has been on my to-do list for 2 years

Really nice report.
Like everyone else that posted the idea of fishing in the "wilderness"/cohutta has been on my radar. Unfortunately, the reports are not that great: a few fish here, a few fish there. I realize that there is more to the wilderness than fishing and it still makes me yearn to get there. Thanks for the reminder. And great photos.

Great pics, man. Pretty fish and pretty fall leaves. Good sized wilds too. Sounds like you had fun. Just getting out this time of year with this weather and the fall leaves is enough for me. The fish are a nice bonus, though.
