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...

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

  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.
