Chattooga River, South Carolina Fly Fishing Reports & Conditions
My tips of the week
Stocking report indicates fresh fish delivered on the 12th. Will be sunny this week and cold but good. Bring gloves and warm hat. Have some weights and get down deep with eggs and worms. Try worms, eggs, mops, stones with rubber legs, and small natural trailers. Small wooly bugger always can be fun if they are not behaving. Hiking away from the parking areas will gain access to less pressured fish. Dropping a simple pheasant tail or prince nymph is a good go-to for mid afternoon water. How about learning something new?

Techniques & Tips

Nymph fishing will continue to be great, especially when the water is still high from rain. Get those flies in the deep holes early with extra split shot. As the day warms up find those riffles and fish smaller flies.

7-Day Forecast

Colder this week. Rubber legs, eggs, and worms for the stockers. Flashy and natural for double nymph rigs and smaller wooly buggers for the fish that are being difficult.
