Guided Trips


Things have changed a lot since the last report. Unseasonably warm weather has kicked off the first hatches of the year in the Great Smoky Mountains while an extremely wet February means all of the tailwaters are blown out across middle and east Tennessee.

If you want to fish in the Smokies, nymphs and streamers will be your best bet unless you encounter a hatch. In that case, Blue Quills and Quill Gordons should be in your arsenal as well as Blue-winged Olives.

For now, just forget about the tailwaters in the short term. continued rain means it will be at least another month before the tailwaters are fishable again. With luck, we can start thinking about some streamer float trips on the Caney Fork in mid to late March, although that may be optimistic. In the meantime, head for the mountains and enjoy chasing the wild trout there.

New Links

I've added some new links over on the sidebar for you to check out. I know you're probably sitting at the office bored out of your mind because it is a Monday. Thankfully there's the Internet and the Trout Zone continues to find the best in fly fishing on the web. Our newest link is to the good people over at the Fly Fish Magazine blog and E-zine. Check 'em out, just don't let the boss catch you doing it when you're supposed to be working...
