1/25/2015 Excellent Seasonal Levels- Some good rain fell yesterday and had rain streams to fine fishing shape. The upper Jackson is running 249 with a little color today. Water temps on the freestones are ranging from 38-46 degrees, more activity on the warmer spring creeks. BWO and midge hatches have been good on the upper 40 high days. Bath, Highland and Rockbridge stream levels up and are excellent for trout fishing right now, lots of wild and stocked trout in the higher altitude streams.
An Outstanding 7 Pounder
January Outlook- As air temps settle more into the teens for lows and highs in mid 30-40's on average this month ideal fishing days are numbered but don't rule productive fishing out just yet. . Spring creeks are great places with warmer water, check out their confluence areas with freestone streams where trout are stocked. Even acclimated holdover trout in put-n-take waters can be fun as the bait and spinner folks take off for a few months. The rains recently have scattered these trout out. Access to some more remote streams can be a problem this month with ice and snow. Check out the trout map on our link page to chart some easy access waters as a backup plan. Flicking a nice brightly colored trout out in the snow is a great little experience.
Huge Hook Jawed 'Bow In A Shaded Section
