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!

Caney Fishing Well


Since I was home this weekend, I took the opportunity to fish the Caney Fork for a couple of hours Sunday afternoon. I’m not going to give a lengthy report. The important thing is that the river is fishing very well right now. Fish took a zebra midge with enough regularity that I didn’t have to change flies at all once I figured out the color combination they wanted.


I stung 2-3 large fish that would have gone over 20 inches yet again but just couldn’t get a solid hookup with the really good ones. The fish of the day was a nice 17 inch brown that gave me a workout on the 3 weight.


The river is in great shape with LOTS of quality fish right now. Some of the really good fish feed in shallow water and are easy to spot and stalk if you move quietly. This week I’ll be fishing again in the evenings in the Smokies so check back for any exciting reports I may have… Also, next weekend is going to include some type of big trip. Either a backcountry overnight trip or a major day trip deep into the backcountry so I should find some good fishing to go along with the solitude I look forward to so much.
