As the weather warms up and the trees start to bloom, springtime is the perfect season for fly fishing enthusiasts to hit the water. One of the best locations to experience the thrill of fly fishing during the spring is the South Holston River, and Conrad's Guide Service is here to take you on an unforgettable adventure.
The South Holston River is one of the most popular fishing destinations in East Tennessee, and for good reason. It boasts over 14 miles of prime fly fishing water, and is home to one of the most abundant rainbow and brown trout populations in the region. During the spring, the river is teeming with insect hatches, making it a prime feeding ground for hungry trout.
One of the most exciting aspects of fly fishing the South Holston River in the spring is the variety of insect hatches that occur in the spring. From March through May, you can expect to see a range of insects on the water, including blue-winged olives, caddis flies, and midges. This means that you'll have plenty of opportunities to try out different fly patterns and techniques to entice the trout to take your fly.
One of the unique features of the South Holston River is the presence of both wild and stocked trout populations. This means that you can expect to catch a mix of rainbow and brown trout. Because of the presence of naturally reproducing trout in the river's population, there are some seasonally closed sections of the river from November to January to allow the fish to spawn undisturbed, so be sure to check the TWRA's management plan to make sure you are not fishing a closed section of water.
