Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 06/07/2019

Fishing is good to excellent just about everywhere now. In the Smokies, water has been getting a little on the low side, but rainfall over the next few days should help that situation. The recent dry spell has been great for the tailwaters. Big fish are being caught and flows are perfect for both wading and floating!

On the Clinch River, sulfurs are still hatching and fish are responding when bugs are on the water. Otherwise, midges will keep the fish fed.

The Caney Fork has settled into a very good schedule. As of right now, the Corps of Engineers is giving us some excellent schedules to keep just enough water in the river. Hopefully this will continue as we go through the hot summer months. We are also hoping that we don't get too much rain this weekend. Lots of rain will mess this river up sooner rather than later.

Warm water streams are fishing very well now. Lots of smallmouth bass are being caught and mostly on topwater. If you have been wanting to chase these fish, now is the time to go!

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...
