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.

Holiday Magic


Normally, a great day of fishing means I will attempt to wax eloquent to recapture the magic by painting a picture with words. Today is different though because I'm exhausted and must get some sleep so I can get up and fish some more in the morning. What a rough life...

The reason I'm so tired is that I've been battling big browns all day which is hard work. Someone has to do it and I'll make that sacrifice so the rest of you can go back to work...


Anyway, for those that are dying to know, the river is the South Holston and that's just about all I'm going to say on here... If anyone has any specific questions, feel free to contact me via email and I might provide a few details.
