Toccoa River Fishing Report - (Lower tailwater section)
May 19, 2017
The discharges and stream levels have been low for the past few days, and our
customers are reporting some good catches. There is rain forecast everyday for the
coming week, but we don't think the amounts will be heavy enough to alter the
discharges to any great extent. Conditions should remain good.
7 Day Weather Forecast: There is a chance of rain everyday for the coming week.
Highs will range from 74 to 86 and lows from 54 to 66 degrees.
Recommended Trout Flies:
Midges: Blood (Red), sizes 20/22, larva, pupa and adults
Midges: Cream, size 20/22, larva, pupa and adults
Midges: Light Green, size 20/22, larva, pupa and adults
Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin, size 6
Blue-winged Olives, size 20 and 18, nymphs, emergers, duns and spinners
Little Black Caddis, size 18, pupa and adults
Cinnamon Caddis, size 16/18, larva, pupa and adults
Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
Be sure to check the TVA release schedule shown above.
Different species of Blue-winged olive nymphs are very plentiful and available for the
trout and various species can hatch on warmer, cloudy days.
Still, a good strategy is 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.
Fish the Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin streamers anytime during low light
conditions or higher water levels.
Midges are hatching. Light greens, creams and reds or blood midges.
Little Black Caddis are hatching.
Cinnamon Caddis are hatching.
