Mossy Creek Fly Fishing Forecast 7/31/2023
Nick brings us the forecast this week. The weather will be much more comfortable this week. Expect lows in the 50's with highs in the low 80's with sunny skies and calm winds. We had some scattered rain last week as most of the larger storms went significantly north and south of us. Some of the National Park streams got a bump in flow last week and are currently running around average flow for mid summer. The spring creeks and tailwaters will likely still be your best bet for quality trout fishing this week as water flows are in decent shape. Tricos are thick on the spring creeks most mornings. Beetle season is still in full swing and hoppers continue to emerge and mature. Blind fishing terrestrial patterns can produce quality size fish. You can drop a nymph off the back if fish are hesitant to take your dry. You might keep your streamer box handy for Thursday when we do have a possibility of rain and overcast weather. The smallmouth fishing reports coming in today have been excellent. We anticipate the bass fishing to continue to be hot the rest of this week and as long as the weather remains stable. August and September are some of the best months to sight fish big bass and also catch them on topwater. Our August calendar is pretty much full but we do have some weekdays in September available to float. Have plenty of poppers, baitfish, and crayfish patterns for the rest of the season for smallmouth. Big largemouth are tucked into the woody structure right now. Big deer hair poppers and frogs can get them to explode out of their hiding spots. Big crayfish patterns dropped on the edge of the wood and fished slowly can also get them to bite. Keep an eye out for feeding carp as they are always a possible target. Check out the video for all of the other details.
