Summer is in full force, and it’s hot. Water temperatures are rising, and you all know what that means. Early mornings and late evenings are still fishing great, and with rain in the forecast fishing should stay pretty good. The Toccoa tailwater below Lake Blue Ridge is still cold and having great numbers on full and half day floats. Big fish are still biting decent as well. Try to stay with super light tippet (6x). Small (size 16 & 18) BWO dries and parachute adams in the early morning and late evenings are really putting fish in the boat. Standard dry dropper rig with small (size 16 & 18) BWO nymphs and standard flashback pheasant tails are working great as well. Try to beat the crowd on weekends and fish as early or late as possible. Generation schedules have been allowing fantastic morning and afternoon fishing. See link below to see the latest generation schedule.

The Upper Toccoa is seeing water temperatures in the high 70s which is not great for trout. Unless you’re after bass or chubbs, I wouldn’t recommend fishing the upper until this fall when the delayed harvest starts November 1st. If you’re after a bass, throw bass poppers, clousers, and sparkle minnows.

Our private waters at Noontootla Creek Farms are fishing great. This time of year it offers some of the best terrestrial fishing in the Southeast. Hoppers, beetles, ants, and the good old hopper dropper rig is hard to beat right now. Don’t miss out on the best hopper fishing around. It won’t last long!

Small mountain streams are also about as good as it gets right now. Small (size 14 and 16) chernobyl chubbies are all you need. Small (size 16 & 18) sulfur dries and parachute adams will work great as well, or try the standard dry dropper rig. Don’t miss out on the awesome water levels and even better fishing. Hope to see y’all out there!
