Snow slows fly fishing in WNC

Every time I turn around, there'smore snow on the ground. The days in the middle of the week, though, have tossed a few curveballs by giving us mild weather in the high 40s and low 50s and then turning vile for the weekend with a shower of sparkly snow and ice.
I did get out, though, on a couple of those miserable days. Mostly, I fished nymphs in the water across the street. On the nicest of those days, I caught nine at the cabin and a couple more downstream at the fire station. Nothing special, but they were trout. They hit pheasant tail and hare's ear nymphs.
My days off this weekend look good on the weather map. It's looking like low to mid 50s and mostly sunny. Some clouds Monday could help.
