Down South

Friday while brookie fishing, Chris and I discussed heading down to the other end of the state for a chance to find some Blue Wing Olives, Browns, and Bows. We did exactly that. We arrived in McDowell county promptly at 10am and found the water to be less than perfect than what we wanted. We decided to head upstream into the headwaters and fish the small water and look for whatever would bite. We both started the day off with Olive Bead Head Wooly Buggers and fishing was a little slow. We both picked up a few fish by high sticking pot holes and current breaks. After a couple of hours, we decided to make way for a little out of the way spot we call the meadows. We figured that the slow water would be the place to look for the BWO hatch and we hit the nail on the head. We both began picking up fish on Parachute BWO patterns fishing them to sporadically rising fish, and just like that the fishing was on. Chris caught 5 and I brought 8 to hand. Not a perfect weahter and water day for fishing, but you know what, it sure beat being at work.
