Guided Trips

UPDATE: 7/11/2016 Smokies Fly Fishing Report -- Current Hatches: Blue-winged Olives, Isonychias (Slate Drake), Little Yellow Stoneflies, Golden Stoneflies, Tan and Cinnamon Caddis, inch worms, beetles, and ants. Hatches are sparse for the most part. We have reached that point in the summer where heading higher in elevation will increase your odds of success as will a good hike. Brook trout fishing is great now. High water days will be excellent in the lower elevations throwing nymphs or streamers. Recommended flies include, Prince Nymphs, Golden Stonefly nymphs, Yellow Stimulators, Green Weenies, Ants, and Black Foam Beetles. If you need to learn how to fish these streams and where to go, a guided trip with me can help you accomplish that!

Caney Fork Fly Fishing Report: Terrestrial season is upon us but we have been boating some large trout on nymphs and midges as well. Some high water this week will also offer the chance for some streamer fishing with very large trout and stripers always possible. Fishing will remain great if you know the river. The best way to enjoy this fishing is out of the drift boat which allows us to access some less pressured sections. 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: So far the sulfur hatch has not been anything to write home about. When there aren't a lot of bugs on the water, stick with small nymph, emerger, and midge patterns and you should catch some nice trout.

Holston River: Give this river a break on the trout sections until next winter.

Cumberland Plateau Fishing Report: Smallmouth bass fishing is excellent right now. The rain last week has left a good amount of water in the creeks and the fish are happy. Get on this sooner as opposed to later and be prepared for afternoon thunderstorms and rising water.

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!!!
