Wally and I have been throwing the fly in earnest since mid Nov 2014. The bite is becoming more consistent as the water level stabilizes and the temps slowly fall through the lower 50s and into the upper 40s. On Allatoona the size has been average with an occasionaly fish with some shoulders. On Carters, we've been averaging 10-11 fish a trip with a little larger fish than Toona. 10' leaders seem to be the right depth, rocky banks and laydowns producing best, much deeper water nearby. On Carters, the dam end is about 12' visibility right now, the creeks and branches are producing better than the main lake (for us), the water temp was still around 52-53 degrees this week. When the temps are cold and you don't want to rely on your frozen fingers for bite detection, put on some gloves and rely on your eyes for bobber detection with the FnF! This is, by far, the best way to enjoy the cold weather fishing in this area!
