Toccoa DH

I fished the DH Saturday morning for about three hours. Flow was a little heavy, but not too bad. I started out a few hundred feet below the station, and worked my way down stream about a 1/2 mile. I picked up a nice brookie right at the beginning, about 14 inches. Wading down stream, I caught another 7 or 8 rainbows. I hiked back upstream and fished just below the launch. I got into a bunch of bows, catching another 10 plus fish in the final hour. I used my 6 weight and a very large streamer on 2x mono for almost the entire day - it was working, so I didn't change. It was a perfect day for me: moderate temps, light rain, slight stain on the water, and I didn't see another person fishing until I went to the launch.
