So ALOT has been going on over at High Country Guide Service since the return from Alaska. (We will be updating some Alaska trips and notes from the 2019 season as the Winter goes on). Our fishing season has really picked up here in the High Country and the leaves are in FULL PEAK right now. Might have missed it.
Our local streams received a much anticipated stocking and as of right now its raining, with more rain in the forecast. Next week the state will stock more fish - and this November looks to be shaping up in a big way!
The wild streams around Boone have been showing their true colors with the transition of the seasons, and the browns and brooks are starting to put on their Winter weight.
The tailwaters of East Tennessee - the Watauga and South Holston - have indeed kept enough stream flows for the trout to sustain and thrive this Summer. As we slip in to the Fall months the resident browns are starting to make the move for the pre-spawn. The fishing is really starting to heat up over there as the nights start to cool down! We are floating practically 7 days a week right now and would love to get you out on the stream!
We have moved locations!
We are now in the old Farmers Hardware building - inside of Highland Outfitters Fly Shop.
140 S Depot St. #1
Boone, NC 28607
Please come and visit us as we move in and occupy a really rad building. This thing was built in the 1920's and full of character and history. It is much bigger than our previous space, has much more exposure being in the "outdoor corner" of Downtown Boone, HAS PARKING, and is a collaboration with a budding business partner. We couldn't be more excited and honored to be a part of it!
David has been given Pro Status with Scott Fly Rods out of Colorado. This company is the real thing - still making from scratch Fly Rods in America one at a time BY HAND. Honored and beyond stoked to be a part of such a quality group.
We've got lots going on up here as we move in to the new space - and lots of new events to host! Stay tuned as we update fishing reports, happenings, and meetings - see yall soon!!!
