Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 11/21/2017

Fishing is good on the Clinch River right now and that is where I'm doing most of my guiding and fishing. The Smokies have been good as well. The Caney Fork is just now starting to offer some decent windows again so that is great news!

In the Smokies, the brown trout are wrapping up the spawn. Over the next few weeks, the opportunity to catch larger than average brown trout is definitely elevated. I like to throw nymphs or streamers right now and through the winter. Next spring should be good with hatches starting by the first of March and peaking by late April or early May. Spring is one of the best times to fish in the Smokies so start planning that trip now!

The Caney Fork is starting to offer some wade opportunities as well as some good schedules for half day floats. If you would like to get in a late season float or wade trip here, let me know as I have a few openings over the next few weeks.

This winter is looking like a good bet on the musky streams. We'll be out hunting the toothy critters in the near future so stay tuned for more on that!

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...
