Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 01/17/2019

Colder weather lately has slowed things down a touch in the Smokies. Thankfully, however, the streams haven't really dropped below 40 degrees so there are always some fish to be found. With a big rain event forecast for this weekend followed by sharply colder temperatures, get out and fish sooner rather than later. Nymphs or streamers are the name of the game this time of year.

On the tailwaters, we are dealing with massive amounts of water That said, while lots of rain this weekend may set us further back, there is a glimmer of hope on the horizon. The overall trend over the next 1-3 months is for drier conditions which should allow flows to stabilize and at least allow us to get some float trips in.

Musky fishing has been decent as of late. Flows are generally just about perfect on our favorite musky rivers. With cold weather ahead, this is something we'll probably be doing more of...

New Yellowstone Site!!!

From James and Angie Marsh comes another great website just in time for our last minute trip preparation. You may know of them from their fine site on fishing in the Smokies (previously highlighted here at the Trout Zone). In particular, I really have appreciated some of the stream shots. As I've prepared for the trip, there have been several small streams I am interested in trying but didn't really know what to expect. The detailed description of the streams along with the pictures helped tremendously in giving me a better idea of what to expect.

  1. I just got back from yellowstone a couple days ago and the fishing was great. I am sure you have read but all of the major rivers and streams are on mandatory shut down from 2pm until 5am. Fishing the Northeast portion on the park (Soda Butte, Slough Creek, Lamar) is good early and then move to small higher elevation streams after (Tower Creek for Brookies, Soda Butte in and above Ice Box Canyon by Thunderer) Parks Fly Shop in Gardner is very helpful and can point you in the right direction as well. www.parksflyshop.com Have a fun and safe trip.

  2. Thanks! It is great to hear that the fishing is still good. We'll definitely be getting our fishing in early in the day so we can hit some of the streams with afternoon closures early. Afternoons will be for tying and hitting small streams as you suggested...
