Fall has finally arrived. Cooler morning temperatures and shorter days have allowed the trout to start moving around and begin to eat a bit more. The brown trout have begun making their spawning runs on many of the North Georgia tributaries. Be looking for these fish staging around creek confluences as the move further upstream. Dry flies continue to produce on the higher elevation streams while nymphs are a bit more productive in bigger waters. Overcast days have been the days to be on the water as the bluebird/high pressure days leave the trout more inactive and spooky. As fall continues we look forward to seeing more insects emerging as the terrestrials dwindle. If you're coming to the mountains to escape the bustle of the city be sure to avoid the tourist heavy areas that are drawing large crowds on the weekends.
