Guided Trips

UPDATE: 9/29/2016 Smokies Fly Fishing Report -- Current Hatches: Isonychias (aka Slate Drake or Mahogany Dun), Mahogany Duns (Paraleptophlebia), Little Yellow Stoneflies, Golden Stoneflies, Tan and Cinnamon Caddis, inch worms, beetles, and ants. Low water everywhere you go! Water temperatures are good now with cool overnight fall weather the norm. Fish throughout the Park now and focus on stealth and finding faster broken pocket water where you can get close to the trout. Stonefly or Isonychia nymphs and terrestrials are probably your best bet until we get more rain.

Caney Fork Fly Fishing Report: This has been a banner year on the Caney. The majority of floats are yielding fish to at least 18-19 inches with quite a few 20"+ trout being caught as well. Yesterday we boated a big 20"+ holdover rainbow that ran all over the river before finally coming to the net. I have some availability if you are looking for a guided trip so contact me about a float or wade trip if you want to enjoy this fishing at TroutZoneAnglers@gmail.com or call/text (931) 261-1884.

Clinch River Fishing Report: Fishing continues to be good and there are some wadeable flows on a regular basis now. Long fine leaders and midges are the recipe on low water. Combine this with long casts and you will be rewarded. High water is producing some quality trout. Nymphs and midges or streamers are both going to produce on high water.

Holston River: Give this river a break on the trout sections until next winter. Water temperatures on most of the trout water are elevated and fishing now will stress these beautiful fish.

Cumberland Plateau Fishing Report: Cooler weather will get the bass fired up again as they feed heavily before winter sets in. Muskie will be hot as well. Our current problem is low water. Wading is an option but I would wait longer until we get some rain to start fishing these streams again.

Last Time

Today was the last chance I have to fish for a couple of weeks now. Semester finals are rapidly approaching and I'll be spending any free time I have trying to study. The last day was nothing exciting unfortunately. I drove over to the Hiwassee and explored a bit before hitting a couple of spots that always produce. Only 5 or so fish were inclined to eat my flies so it was a slow time on the water. All the fish were the usual stocker 'bows, hence the lack of pictures. I assume you all know what those look like by now...

Thankfully, my next time fishing should be somewhere other than the HI. Most likely it will be the SoHo but it is possible that I will be on the Caney for a few hours before that. Regardless, the quality of fishing (well, at least the catching) should be much higher. I'm going for one of those big browns on the SoHo over Christmas break and will be fishing at least a couple of days over there. If things go well, I may have to schedule a bit more time to fish in East Tennessee. I can't wait!!!
