Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 05/08/2019

Fishing is good to excellent just about everywhere now. Lots of bugs are hatching including mayflies, caddis, and stoneflies. Little yellow stoneflies are hatching well now making a nymph imitation a good bet. Light Cahills, Sulfurs, Pale Evening Duns, March Browns, Blue-winged Olives, and others are on the water at times. Golden stones are now hatching well also. Try a #14 Yellow Stimulator and a #16 bead head Pheasant Tail and be ready to catch fish!

On the Clinch River, sulfurs have started and fish are responding to dry fly imitations. This is some of the most exciting and also the most challenging fishing of the whole year. Pinpoint accuracy at distance is needed, but the rewards can be large. Water is now mostly higher making float trips a requirement. If it will quit raining sometime soon, lower flows should return.

The Caney Fork is up and down each day. Right now it is mostly up and will stay that way as long as it keeps raining. Streamer fishing in particular was great on one generator. Moving forward, this river should continue to fish better and better for the next month or two.

Warm water streams are starting to turn on very well. Smallmouth bass are aggressive now. This is the spawning season for these fish, so please be careful where you wade and leave spawning fish alone.

    I think you need a second, follow-up poll - "How many days a year do you WANT to fish".

    That's a no-brainer.

  3. If I could, I'd fish almost everyday. Strangely though, when I do have the opportunity to fish for days in a row, I have been known to get a bit tired of it. When I fish everyday, I tend to fish fewer hours each day. It is more enjoyable to fish just a few hours knowing that you can go do it again the next day. Right now, when I'm in school, I fish as long and hard as possible when I go because I don't have the luxury of going as often as I want...

    Same with me, with 3 kids, all the various "events" of everyday life that take up time, etc...when I get to fish, I try to maximize the time. Of course, the time just zips by when on the stream, and it's extra tough this time of year, with the daylight being so short.
