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...

New Poll

I'm trying to get a feel for how often everyone visits my blog. Do you check daily and are always disappointed with the lack of daily updates or do you only stop by once in awhile to see what's happening? I'm debating putting more time into this blog but want to know if it is worth it. Just vote over on the poll and let me know how often you stop by...thanks!!!

    You're in my RSS reader, so I read new entries when they come up, but this is the first time I've actually visited the site.

  2. I don't visit sites -- not unless they have an RSS feed.

    Like a lot of people, I don't have time to check and see if someone's posted an update, unless I know they almost always do on a daily basis.

    It's an on-demand world...

    And hey, if you're going to invest some time in this thing with some kind of commercial use in mind, consider moving to a self-hosted WordPress installation.

  3. TC, thanks for the advice. I've given thought to expanding and putting a lot more work into this. With summer approaching, I should have more time on my hands to accomplish this but I'm not sure if I want to or not...decisions, decisions...

    Also, glad to know that people are reading even if they aren't actually visiting the site. That is good to know...

  5. I don't do RSS, but I've got you in my "fishing blog" folder in my bookmarks, and I do an "open in tabs" almost every day.

    Nice site, I check it from time to time and enjoy your photos and the fact that you do not focus on a single species.
    Keep it up and have fun!
