FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 01/08/2019

In the Smokies, fishing has been good to great with unseasonably mild temperatures. With colder weather in store over the next couple of days, expect the fishing to drop off a bit. In other words, things will be more like normal winter fishing conditions in the short term. At some point we expect winter to return for real as well, but time will tell on that one.

On the tailwaters, we are dealing with massive amounts of water with no end in sight. The Caney Fork and Clinch Rivers are both rolling at very high levels. While a few fish can certainly be found on each of these, there are safer and better places to catch a few trout. The one bit of good news here? The reservoirs seem to be mostly falling now so somewhere down the road we might get better flows again.

Musky fishing should be starting to turn on. Flows are starting to drop into what we consider to be the sweet spot on our favorite rivers. Check back for more on this as we have time to get out on the water.

New Poll

What type of fishing do you want to see and hear about from my upcoming trip to Colorado? This is the topic of the new poll. We'll be spending some time on lakes as well chasing pike but I'm curious if you prefer reports on rivers like the Taylor, Gunnison, Frying Pan, and Green or would you prefer to see reports from high country small streams that consistently produce lots of small to average trout? Hopefully I'll be able to do an occasional update while on the road...actually I would say it is fairly likely. No, you probably won't be getting every last exciting detail but a few pictures will be better than waiting until we get back...

  1. Hey David. I know you are a die hard fly fisherman, but if you run across any of those spin fishermen, like myself, If they are catching anything, see what they are using. Might find something new that will work here. Have a great trip.
