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!

Busy

School's out!!! You would think that I could go fishing even more but not so. Probably my grades will reflect the abundance of fishing lately, but it was definitely worth it. Between moving home, graduation weekend for friends (mine will be later this year), and thinking about a summer job (why can't I just go fishing instead of doing something less important like working?), the fishing scene has been really slow. With a trip to town to search for that all-important job looming in my immediate future, the chances of fishing aren't all that great. On the other hand, THE CANEY IS FINALLY WADEABLE meaning that I might have to prioritize. Clearly, checking on the status of the river is much more important than landing that job. I can always put off work, well not always because it costs a lot of money just to get to the river, but perhaps one trip to the river is needed before I work too hard...

    Let me be the first to tell you - work sucks...it is so inconvenient to pursuing the goal of being a trout bum. If there is anything worse, it is work AND having the kids stuck in school - they're even worse, loading them down with nonsense like homework and projects and tests. I'm probably one of the few parents out there who is actually GLAD when summer vacation finally arrives for them...my kids' school really knows how to nickle and dime me to death. Well, they're getting in their last licks this month...by the end of it, we'll be back up in the mountains.

    Good luck with the job hunt...hopefully it will be a cool one where you'll be able to get away once in a while.
