I have been fishing several times since arriving to Blowing Rock, NC for the Winter, but it hasn’t really felt like Winter until today. Finally, we got some snow. The ski hills around here are in need of this snow fall and colder temps. Two days ago, in a rainstorm that lasted most of the day, I fished the Watauga upstream of Appalachian Angler. We tossed streamers most of the time as the river had come up with the rain, but we managed to catch a few good trout and had a ton of follows. I love the look of the Watauga River…..the large boulders and tight casting remind me of the Gallatin River. I am going to float the Watauga in TN next week somtime and will report on that soon after.
