Fishing Outlook & Conditions
Mark White's Tip of the Week
Rain has finally arrived! The E. Fork of the Chattooga was stocked on 11/16. Chauga was stocked on 11/14 and 11/16 along with Brasstown. The Hartwell tailwater was stocked on 11/15. Delayed Harvest began Nov 1 and will run through May 14. Eggs and bigger nymphs like a Pat's Rubber Legs are all safe bets right now. Mornings and late evenings are still the best times to look for opportunities for dries. Put in a little hiking to get away from the crowds and find more eager fish.

Water Flow Data
5-Day Outlook as of 11/22/22
Rains have provided more water for the fish to be happier and for you to throw some worms and streamers. Good fishing on the Chattooga this week. Run some nymphs through sunny, fast riffles or rip streamers through deep pools. Get away from the people and easy access points.
Techniques & Tips as of 11/22/22
Double nymph rigs and fat streamers for big browns. Pack a lunch and maybe a supper back at the truck. You'll want to spend the entire day out there!
