UPDATE: 2/7/2016 Smokies Fly Fishing Report -- Cold water is back for the next week or so. In fact, it looks like we may end up with some snow over the next 2-3 days. Expect the fishing to be slow although a few fish can usually be dredged up on nymphs and midges. If you want a shot at some larger fish, try throwing some streamers. In particular, olive or brown sculpin patterns might get a big brown trout interested.
Caney Fork Fly Fishing Report: Flows are up even more than they have been but fish can still be caught on streamers. The cold months are streamer season for this river so contact me about a float trip if you want to enjoy this fishing at TroutZoneAnglers@gmail.com or call/text (931) 261-1884.
Cumberland Plateau Fishing Report: The musky streams have been running high since the heavy rain last week but are dropping closer to a good fishable level and now is the time to get out and chase the toothy critters. Keep an eye on flows and get out if the weather warms even a little.

Yet another poll is up and this time I'm asking if you are going to take vacation time to fish around the holidays. It seems the rivers get crowded around Christmas and New Years Day. Is that just my imagination or maybe everyone is just fishing on the weekend. I've got to say though that it sure feels like people are out fishing during the week a lot. Anyway, vote in the poll and if you have any really cool trips lined up leave a comment here and let me know where you're going... I'll probably head for upper east Tennessee and probably the Smokies as well over the next few weeks. The Caney will be blown out for awhile so a trip to the Hiwassee might be in order as well...
