Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 07/01/2018

Heavy rains recently means the Caney Fork River is back up. Streamer fishing will be decent to good, but this is not for everyone. Fishing in the Smokies continues to be excellent.

Wet years normally produce some fantastic fishing in the Smokies and this year is no different. No matter where we fish, it seems that the fishing is amazing this year. We have seen some nice brown trout, big rainbows, and lots of good sized brook trout this year.

Now we are getting into standard summer terrestrial fishing. Ants, inch worms, beetles, and even occasionally hoppers are all getting it done.

On the Caney Fork, flows should start coming down within a week or two. Once we start seeing low water again, the usual nymphs and midges should produce along with some terrestrials and even streamers.

Drought Outlook

The drought outlook from the Climate Prediction Center has been updated and things are looking up for Tennessee and the southeastern US. The current drought map still shows severe drought for portions of southeast Tennessee and a narrow band of extreme drought further south in neighboring states. The outlook presents a much happier picture though with improvement expected. We have been receiving some good rain here in Tennessee the last couple of days so things are definitely doing better. Hopefully we'll soon be completely out of the drought...
