Hazel Creek Fly Fishing Report May 4th

This week’s Hazel Creek Fly Fishing Report for May 4th; Fly Fishing action on Hazel Creek in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is on fire right now! Recent rains and cool tempratures have the hatches popping and the trout looking up on our favorite stream in the Smokies. May is when the streams of the Smoky Mountains hit their peak for the year!

Currently were are seeing great hatches of Little Yellow Sallies and Light Cahills all day long. Yellow Sallies are many a serious Smokies fishermans favorite hatch. These bright yellow Stoneflies hatch steadily all throughout the day and peak just before dark. Their bright yellow color makes an easy fly pattern to see even on the darkest sections of streams.

Hazel Creek Fly Fishing

Hazel Creek flows are perfect right now for fly fishing. Water levels are running full and clear which make stalking up on these wild fish easier. We’re seeing trout feeding at all levels of the water columns right now. Which means fishing anything from dry flies to heavy nymphs will work well.

The weather this weekend looks to be soggy on Friday and Saturday for the Smoky Mountains. Intermittent storms and showers on Friday and tapering off on Saturday. Temps across the region are expected to drop down to the low 50’s for the highs in the back country. The old timers call this Blackberry¬†Winter. Sunday however looks to be very promising as mostly sunny weather and a warming trend to start the week off with.
