Spent sometime on the trout rivers this past week. Started out on the South Holston River just across the state line in TN. The SoHo fished well as usual nymphing during the generation. I did lose the biggest brown trout I believe I have had on the line. The fish ate a San Juan worm, I could not turn him on my 4 wt very easily when I finally did turn the brown trout he made another run towards some rocks and line was broke. Also got out to the Jackson River twice this week once with a friend and today I had clients on the water. Jackson river fished decent with nymphs both days. Water temps are 62 degrees and water flow is 203 cfs coming out of the dam. Water is low and there are a ton of leaves floating down the river. Almost every cast you will hook a leaf, I guess a small price to pay when fishing this time of year with the beautiful Fall color. Most of our trout were caught on a red San Juan worm and Pyscho Prince in purple. A few October caddis are hatching along with a few blue wing olives. Get out and enjoy the fall color, the river is my favorite place, just be prepared to hook a few leaves.
