Chattahoochee River Fishing Report (Tailwater)
March 17, 2017
The discharges and stream levels have been low for the past few days making wading
easy in all sections of the river. There have been lots of caddisflies hatching as well as
midges. Streamers like the Brown sculpin work good when there is low light conditions.
Midges are still an important insect to imitate, so don't overlook them.
7 Day Weather Forecast: There is a chance of rain Saturday and next Tuesday,
otherwise clear for the next week. Highs will range from 63 to 71 and lows from 35 to 51

Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
Always check the schedule of releases. Blue-winged olive nymphs have been the
number one producer. The stream is full of various species of small BWOs nymphs and
the trout are always focusing on them. Midges are always hatching and eaten by trout
The Olive and Black Sculpin Streamers are great flies to use for the larger trout. The
Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin are great flies to use anytime.
Scuds are available for the trout to eat all year.
As a backup strategy, we recommend fishing a tandem Midge rig under a small strike
indicator with the midge lava as the bottom fly and the midge pupa as the top fly.
Fish the adult midge only when you observe trout feeding on the surface.
Cinnamon Caddis are hatching.
Little Black Caddis are hatching.
