Asheville area rivers and streams are all producing. Smallmouth rivers are up right now, but slowly dropping to an ideal level. Tva has been changing up the flows on the Watauga and South Holston Rivers. Definitely give TVA a call before you haul! BWO’s are hatching all afternoon on both rivers, making for some great early season dry fly fishing. Smallmouth are transitioning from their pre-spawn mode and should be moving into the shallows anytime now. The fish are spread out, so try and cover as much water as you can, but still concentrate on the slack eddies with some depth. Large baitfish patterns are the best thing going for enticing the bronzebacks right now. #smallmouthbass #riversmallmouth #ashevillefishing #ashevilledrifters #ashevilleflyfishing #frenchbroadriver #boulderboats #springfishing #bluebirdday
