Tim's Roaring River Fishing Report





Tim Homesley has been fishing Roaring River State Park for over 30 years, and has fished an average of 300 days per year for the last 23 years.




In addition to his own outstanding experience on the local streams and lakes, Tim also has access to the experience of the three guides he runs out of his shop.

Roaring River is in as good a condition as it has been all year, good flow, clear water, great dry fly and nymph fishing, its in great shape for the coming up winter season, right now we are tearing the trout up on Blue Wing Olives, Caddis, Parachute adams, and still getting a few on beetles, ants, and hoppers.

9' 7X or 6X leaders are best right now, I'm using 7X most of the time.

Good nymphs to use right now are pheasant tails, copper johns, burlaps, hares ears, and sow bugs. #16's and smaller seem to be working best.

2-lb line is best right now, as the water is very clear, avoid bright lines, something clear or moss green works best most of the time.

Marabou jigs are great right now, olive, black/yellow, white, brown, and gray have been working very well right now. same colors in the R.R. specials. 1/32nd and smaller are working best right now.

If you are using spinners, black, brown, olive, pink, and yellow have been working.

If you are using worms, orange, orange/white, pink, cheese yellow, and mint green have been working.

If you are using power eggs, white, orange, pink, and flo. yellow have all been working well.

Good luck on the river this week.
