Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 01/17/2019

Colder weather lately has slowed things down a touch in the Smokies. Thankfully, however, the streams haven't really dropped below 40 degrees so there are always some fish to be found. With a big rain event forecast for this weekend followed by sharply colder temperatures, get out and fish sooner rather than later. Nymphs or streamers are the name of the game this time of year.

On the tailwaters, we are dealing with massive amounts of water That said, while lots of rain this weekend may set us further back, there is a glimmer of hope on the horizon. The overall trend over the next 1-3 months is for drier conditions which should allow flows to stabilize and at least allow us to get some float trips in.

Musky fishing has been decent as of late. Flows are generally just about perfect on our favorite musky rivers. With cold weather ahead, this is something we'll probably be doing more of...

Coming Up...

I've been slacking off a little lately but there's plenty of good stuff coming. James Marsh from Fly Fishing the Great Smoky Mountains sent me some DVDs to check out so expect a review on those coming up as I have time. I've already watched a large portion of the DVD on fishing dry flies in the Smokies. So far it has been great and has made me want to go hit up some trout streams. I might have to scratch that itch sometime soon...

In fact, this weekend or early next week should see me having enough time to make a Smokies trip, probably to look some more for lake run fish. When I find the fish, you'll be the first to find out so check back often for those reports...

Also, I'm hoping to do a review of an excellent article on the water problems out West. That one will take a bit longer probably although I might get it done this weekend. In between all these other things, I still have to at least pretend to study occasionally and also get in some fishing locally as well...

Finally, I want to apologize for any spelling problems in my recent and current posts. The spell-check feature is on the blink for Blogger and I've been too lazy to resort to other methods. I don't really have the time to do a thorough job proof reading so my apologies to everyone that hates reading something full of spelling and grammatical errors...

  1. Brother, I thought the spell check thing was something with my computer! I've quite posting to save myself the embarassment of improper grammer! Good luck this weekend!

  2. I've had a spell check problem too and sent a question to blogger help group to get it fixed. I've just started a new website ( http://fishingafield.blogspot.com ) so I've added your link and looking for others. Come by sometime and see what you think. Lots of luck with the fishing and the schooling.
