With wade fishing the Delaware system taken off the table by unseasonably high water I spent 18 hours (round trip) driving down to Tennessee to fish the Watauga and South Holston tailwaters with
an avid fly fisherman friend, originally from Syracuse who now resided in Greensboro, North Carolina. We floated the Watauga Sunday and wade fished the South Holston on Monday.
Both rivers have large populations of 10 to 14 inch trout and at this time of year sulfur hatches that get the fish up and feeding. We didn't catch any of the monster 30 inch plus inch fish that reside there but caught lots of the surface feeders, making it an enjoyable distraction from the high water plaguing the Delaware River fishermen..
