Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 06/07/2019

Fishing is good to excellent just about everywhere now. In the Smokies, water has been getting a little on the low side, but rainfall over the next few days should help that situation. The recent dry spell has been great for the tailwaters. Big fish are being caught and flows are perfect for both wading and floating!

On the Clinch River, sulfurs are still hatching and fish are responding when bugs are on the water. Otherwise, midges will keep the fish fed.

The Caney Fork has settled into a very good schedule. As of right now, the Corps of Engineers is giving us some excellent schedules to keep just enough water in the river. Hopefully this will continue as we go through the hot summer months. We are also hoping that we don't get too much rain this weekend. Lots of rain will mess this river up sooner rather than later.

Warm water streams are fishing very well now. Lots of smallmouth bass are being caught and mostly on topwater. If you have been wanting to chase these fish, now is the time to go!

Something New

Trout are easily my favorite fish to target on the fly. Unfortunately, the nearest trout water is around 50 miles away regardless of whether I'm at home or at school. This reality combined with high gas prices has me looking at alternative fishing trips. Today I checked out a new spot for cool- and warm-water species such as bass and panfish. The fishing turned out slow but it was fun to get out and try something new. I even caught my first white bass ever!!! Hopefully I'll be back to try again soon and maybe I'll find some smallies or largemouth or even some stripers. The best thing is, it is close enough that I can literally go any day I want to now. That means fishing in the morning before class and in the late afternoon after class is a distinct possibility. Of course, I'll have to keep a little time free to study, but who needs to do that when you could be fishing...???

  1. The fish will be there even when school is over...I sound like my dad, but that's coming from someone who wished he had that college education brother! Besides you need to give those poor fish a break.

  2. I was going away to going fishing when I had to study and it me was badly. Then work more and I could be going to go fishing less. Now my work this one related to the fishing, but I am not going to fish either what I wanted. The life is difficult and gives many returns. The fishing only is a hobby for some, for others it is a way of understanding the life.
