Had a beautiful day on Monday, in the high country of Ashe and Grayson counties....shirtsleeve fishing weather. Managed about 2-3 hours on one of Ashe counties DH streams....along with a bunch of other folks who were enjoying the holiday chasing a few trout. Water level was down some...but okay; quite clear and chilly with some ice still along the banks; and some cold but moderately cooperative trout. Managed a few on streamers and on small nymphs...but had to be persistent and probe the bottom with numerous drifts. Did talk with a couple of guys who managed a few fish on nymphs in some slack water...but also saw several nice-sized fish. The older angler had left his magnifying spectacles at home so had to resort to larger flies that he could see to tie on and only managed one. His partner, on the other hand, was able to tie and re-tie quickly and managed a few more fish on small nymphs.
