Eastatoee River, South Carolina Fly Fishing Reports & Conditions
My tips of the week
SCDNR stocked the Big E, Little E, and Big E (Delayed Harvest) sections. Spring weather is upon us so make sure that you are on the ready for dry fly action. Sometimes a shiny dry fly gets those stocked fish coming to the surface. 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

Don't be afraid to swing wooly buggers on a downstream drift. 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.

7-Day Forecast

Water is still nice and cold and flow is perfect this week. Sneak out when you can as the days continue to warm up with the rising sun.
