It is that transition between summer and fall and water temps are hot. Fishing on the Toccoa tailwater is still good early morning and late evenings. The tailwater is starting to show signs of the fall turnover which will make fishing slow for a couple of weeks, but as of right now, it is fishing fine. Try to stay with super light tippet (6x). Small (size 16 & 18) BWO dries and parachute adams in the early morning and late evenings are really putting fish in the boat. Standard dry dropper rig with small (size 16 & 18) BWO nymphs and standard flashback pheasant tails are working great as well. Try to beat the crowd on weekends and fish as early or late as possible. Generation schedules have been allowing great morning and afternoon fishing. See link below to see the latest generation schedule.
The Upper Toccoa is seeing water temperatures in the high 70s which y’all should know is not great for trout. Unless you’re after bass or chubbs, I wouldn’t recommend fishing the upper until this fall when the delayed harvest starts November 1st. If you’re after a bass, throw bass poppers, clousers, and sparkle minnows.
Unfortunately, our private waters up at Noontootla Creek Farms are shut down due to high water temperatures, and depleting oxygen levels. With no rain in the forecast, we are looking at September 24th for them to re-open. Fall fishing at Noontootla creek farms is hard to beat, and with fishing trips and bird hunts booking up, there are not many days or sections left open so don’t miss out!
Small mountain streams are also about as good as it gets right now. Small (size 14 and 16) chernobyl chubbies are all you need. Small (size 16 & 18) sulfur dries and parachute adams will work great as well, or the standard dry dropper rig. Don’t miss out on the last few weeks of dry fly fishing in the mountains.
