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.

Things Have Been Slow

The fishing side of life has been a little slow for me as of late and I apologize for the lack of new material. I'm getting back into the swing of things at school but I'm taking fly fishing as a class so things aren't looking entirely down. I'll even have to take a field trip to go fishing which will get me out of other regular classes...

While you're checking out my blog, please weigh in on the newest poll. I'm curious about how far everyone else out there will hike on a day trip so let me know!!!

  1. This blog is very well written. I'd like to be able to see the updates on a site I check out all the time... If you want to get some more fly angler eyeballs, including mine again, on this you should sign up at flyfishingcommunity.com and add this blog to your profile. I did and the site automatically pulls in my blog updates. It's pretty cool and I know there are a lot of fly anglers that check the blogs. Thought I'd share that.

    Tight lines!
