Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 11/21/2017

Fishing is good on the Clinch River right now and that is where I'm doing most of my guiding and fishing. The Smokies have been good as well. The Caney Fork is just now starting to offer some decent windows again so that is great news!

In the Smokies, the brown trout are wrapping up the spawn. Over the next few weeks, the opportunity to catch larger than average brown trout is definitely elevated. I like to throw nymphs or streamers right now and through the winter. Next spring should be good with hatches starting by the first of March and peaking by late April or early May. Spring is one of the best times to fish in the Smokies so start planning that trip now!

The Caney Fork is starting to offer some wade opportunities as well as some good schedules for half day floats. If you would like to get in a late season float or wade trip here, let me know as I have a few openings over the next few weeks.

This winter is looking like a good bet on the musky streams. We'll be out hunting the toothy critters in the near future so stay tuned for more on that!

Good Water Year

The most recent water supply forecasts are out from the National Water and Climate Center and across the west, snowfall has been generally near to well-above average. This year should be great for fishing throughout the Rockies. I'm starting to work on figuring out how to have another trip to Colorado this year...wish me luck!

  1. You haven't bothered to invite us to go along, and you expect us to wish you luck getting back to the west?

    The nerve...

  2. TC, you're always welcome to join us for fishing. I wouldn't want to offend you because someday, I hope to make it out to CA (have family in Sacramento) with a fly rod at which point I'll be begging for at least some pointers on where to go and what shop will hook me up with some good info. The Shasta area is beautiful but I've only been able to drive through on the Interstate and haven't ever been around with time to fish...

    Are you going to make any trips this year? How about TN? You're buddy Ian Rutter has been reporting some decent dry fly action on his site and I figured that would get your attention...
