Winter has blown in with a convincing dusting of snow and frigid winds. This morning I woke up to a beautiful dusting of wet snow that stuck to all the trees. The ground itself was largely too warm still for anything to stick to it resulting in a beautiful sight: lush green grass still carpets my yard while the trees wear a frosty coating.
UPDATE: 3/13/2015 -- Quill Gordon and Blue Quill mayflies were hatching well on high water in the Smokies today. With the high flows, there were not many fish rising though. This next week is going to be awesome with good weather forecast and dropping water levels.
