Eastatoee River, South Carolina Fly Fishing Reports & Conditions
My tips of the week
Clear and mild, not much rain in the forecast. Sunny afternoons may produce some top water eats. Try a dry and dropper. Delayed Harvest season is approaching so get out now and scout some water to be prepared. Mid day may find some frisky fish on the stretch below Dug Mountain bridge near lake. Poppers, frogs, mice and streamers for warmwater species. The tug is the drug! Keeping of fish is allowed now. fish populations have certainly been impacted. Keep that in mind. Terrestrials and attractor patterns like stimulators in orange, chubbies, ants, cicadas, hoppers, and rubber legged dry flies. Get out and fish! Toss dry flies and try attaching a dropper nymph. Hike downstream and fish your way back up to the car. Pack some food and water and enjoy a great day in some of the most beautiful water that South Carolina offers!

Techniques & Tips

Small and large flashy nymphs combined or a flashy and natural nymph all fished along the bottom with an indicator. Use a heavy fly as your bottom fly and try lighter weighted or unweighted flies above. Connection can be made by leaving a tag end longer at your leader to tippet connection. Make your tag ends no longer than 2-3 inches to avoid tangles.
