Mossy Creek Fly Fishing Forecast 6/21/2022
Brian brings us the forecast for the week ahead. The weather is looking hot again for the next 10 days. Temperatures will be in the 80's and 90's with lows in the mid 60's. The biggest thing to watch out for is afternoon thunderstorms. We anticipate severe weather Wednesday afternoon and evening. There is a small threat of rain and storms over the weekend into early next week as well. Currently our mountain streams are running at average to below average flows for this time of year. The spring creeks are full of water and fishing well. The warm water streams are flowing right around average right now and fishing great. Ants and beetles are becoming more important up in the mountains as our major insect hatches begin to slow down. There are still plenty of little yellow stoneflies available. Trico hatches are thick on the spring creeks in the early morning hours. Tricos in size 18-20 with 6x or 7x tippet are in play for rising fish. Ants and beetles will take fish as well. Fishing a hopper dropper combo in the afternoon hours is the best tactic for clear conditions and blue skies. Streamer fishing has been great on the overcast and rainy periods. The topwater action continues to heat up on the smallmouth rivers. If the fish aren't totally tuned in to surface bugs be sure to try a baitfish, crayfish, or hellgrammite pattern. The Murdich Minnow was one of the more productive flies last week taking big largemouth and smallmouth. Check out the video below for all the details on where to go and what to do this week!
