Orvis Sevierville's Tip of the Week
Fall is on the door step...cooling temps, football saturdays, and hunting season means less traffic on tailwaters. May find some fish more willing to play since less traffic. Look for midging pods...Double midge rig - small zebras and zebra with light tippets. Do some "hunting" of your own and seek out prespawn browns too.

Techniques & Tips as of 10/2/23
Nymphing will produce the most fish day in and day out. Long, light leaders with olive midge in size 18 and black midge #22 range, try a red midge as well...Also #16 scuds, #18 PT's and a wool indicator will be the rig of choice through the winter.
