Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 03/11/2019

Cold weather has given way to early spring. Daffodils are blooming and bugs are hatching. Look for Quill Gordon and Blue Quill emergences in the Smokies along with Little Black Caddis, Little Black Stoneflies, and Early Brown Stoneflies. Blue-winged Olives will be hatching, especially on foul weather days.

Other area waters are high from recent rains. The Clinch River is probably at least a month out from being fishable. The Caney Fork is probably more like two months at best. Stay home, tie flies, or head for the mountains.

Warm water options will turn on if we can get some days without rain. Stillwater options are already producing some bass and bream. River smallmouth bass should be good once flows drop and waters warm.

Sunday Tying Demo

For those that live in or near East Tennessee and don't have plans for Sunday afternoon, I'll be tying at Little River Outfitters in Townsend from 12:30-4:30. So far I'm planning on sharing some of my favorite Smokies patterns including some variations on standard patterns that provide just enough difference from the original to interest some picky fish. Also I'm planning on sharing some favorite tailwater patterns including how I like to fish them. Hope to see some of you there! If anyone plans to attend and has a request for a pattern you would like to see, respond here or shoot me an email and I'll see what I can do...

Also, please remember to vote in the poll at right if you have not done so yet. Let me know how 2008 was as a fishing year for you...
