Upstream Upstate



Previous123

There’s no need in November to pore over your fly box. Just pick a streamer, and in delayed-harvest waters, it’s sure to entice strikes out of rainbow and brown trout.
Streamers will fool many trout

It’s that time of year again —delayed-harvest trout season in many Upstate trout streams and rivers.

Largemouth bass are a perfect freshwater species to target with a fly rod because they’re found nearly everywhere in South Carolina and because they’ll hit a variety of different flies and popping bugs.
Bass on a fly is an angling treat

It’s a pretty good guess that one sight you’ll never see in the boat of a professional bass fisherman is a brace of fly rods and reels.

An upstream cast and a dead drift is the primary technique for effectively fishing a nymph during the late summer and fall — much more productive than hoping to catch trout on a dry fly.

Autumn means nymphs for trout

A vast majority of the food a trout eats is below the water’s surface. As fly anglers, we love the sight of a trout taking a fly on top. It’s exciting and even a little classy, but the odds favor the fisherman who fishes down deep in the water current. It’s the fishing version of golf’s phrase, “Drive for show and putt for dough.”

A little pre-trip investigation and some pertinent questions can help you get the most out of your guided fishing trip.

Want to learn a new technique or tackle a lake or river you’ve never fished before. Maybe you’re traveling, on vacation or don’t have much time to learn and research the lures and techniques that work on a lake or river during a particular season.

It’s essential to be on your favorite stream early in the morning during the summer, as trout and smallmouth bass are often very likely to shut down their feeding during the warmer parts of the day.

During the dog days of summer, it often pays to get up early and be on the water at or before daybreak. This especially applies to the coldwater and coolwater species such as trout and smallmouth bass, fish that become lethargic and don’t usually feed during the hottest hours of the day.

Choosing a fly rod is a matter of matching the kind of fishing you’ll be doing — what kind of fish and the size of the body of water — with the kind of rod that best fits the situation.

In at least one respect, I have to admit to being slightly envious of golfers.

Proper handling of fish — from hook-up to unhooking — will greatly influence its chances for survival after it is released. Make catch-and-release work

In the world in which we live, with dwindling natural resources and new environmental threats to our fisheries appearing almost every day, practicing catch-and-release is a better idea than ever.

Lake Jocassee produces a lot of trophy trout — both rainbows and browns — every year. Early spring is an excellent time to troll or live-bait for big fish. Jocasse: trophy trout trolling

Early spring is an exciting time for fishermen everywhere; air and water temperatures are on the rise, the fish are on the move, and cabin fever is quickly becoming a distant memory.

High, stained water might make a trout fisherman think twice about taking to the stream, but those conditions, present quite often in March, can be a godsend to anglers who understand how a trout’s habits are affected. High and dirty can mean big trout

The month of March is often accompanied by high water in the area’s trout streams and rivers.

Although heavy, late-winter and early-spring rains can create conditions that first appear unfishable, high water is often when a stream’s biggest fish can be caught. Having enough confidence and knowing how to approach this type of water might be the ticket to landing the biggest trout of your lifetime.

Catching a big striped bass in a land-locked reservoir is one of the ultimate experiences that a fly-fisherman can enjoy. Go fly-ing for reservoir stripers

Casting to schooling, shallow-feeding striped bass over open water has become a winter tradition at Lake Hartwell and similar man-made reservoirs across the south. The chance to connect with one of these big, hard-charging fish on light tackle is the year’s highlight for many hard-core striper fishermen. Wherever present, stripers are always one of the favorite species targeted by anglers because of the their size potential, fighting prowess, and aggressiveness.

A good vise is the first thing any prospective fly-tier should consider when thinking about taking the plunge into tying your own trout flies, bass poppers or redfish streamers. Good gear is fly-tier’s No. 1 need

At some time during the frozen doldrums of mid-winter, when most anglers are merely trying to maintain dominion over their sanity, the ardent fly fisherman takes up fly-tying.

Dressing by layer and using high-quality Gore-Tex wadersand outerwear can go a long way toward keeping a fisherman warm, dry and comfortable during the winter — when the alternative is downright unpleasant. Keeping warm is one cool idea

If you are like me, you fish all four seasons of the year. Cold weather can often lead to great fishing days, and you can usually count on having the best water all to yourself.

Delayed-harvest streams in the South Carolina mountains receive heavy stockings in the fall, including some trophy fish that will push or exceed 20 inches. Popular delayed-harvest is back

For South Carolina fly fishermen, November offers some of the most anticipated trout fishing of the year — delayed-harvest season.

A fly-fishermen who is used to sneaking up on spooky mountain trout will find fishing for redfish on marsh flats a challenging and rewarding way to make a trip to the coast more enjoyable. Fish stalking, flats style, is a joy

Autumn ushers in some of the best fishing of the year on saltwater flats along the South Carolina coast. During this time of year, redfish become aggressive feeders, and the expansive grass and mud flats are the most-productive locations for hooking up with these favored gamefish.
