It hasn’t been easy to find low water to fish around here lately especially on the tailwaters. If you’ve been checking the generation schedule everyday like we have then you probably have seen an occasional window here and there but not many. We’re seeing more breaks in the schedule with great flows for all day floating/wade fishing. I hate to jump the gun and set somebody up for a disappointment but if you have the option to get out then go because it will be worth the effort.
The Holston has fished pretty dang good on low water and the fish are happy and healthy. Stick with your standard flies like pheasant tails, hares ears and zebra midges because there’s really no need to go crazy with fly experimentation right now. Save those flies for when the fish have seen just about everything and start to get a little picky, sometimes going simple will put fish in the net.

Our fishing season is 12 months long and can be down right fantastic fishing midges for bigger fish in the winter. With Christmas and New Years right around the corner there can be a lot of stress in the air and a day to yourself catching a few fish could be just the medicine you need. Do yourself a favor and get out on the water and experience some great fishing first hand. Heck, if you are new to the area, sport, or just want to see some different techniques, give us a call and we’ll get you out on the water. Don’t forget about our gift certificates for any trip for that outdoorsman in your family that can be hard to shop for. Just CONTACT US and we’ll take care of everything.
We hope that everyone has a very Merry Christmas and that things don’t get too stressful for you. When things get tough just remember what Christmas is all about. Take care and have a great day.
