Guided Trips

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!

Nothing But Busy

My fishing time has been suffering a lot lately. Unfortunately that is what happens when you get a real job. Today, I'll probably sneak off a few hours for the first time in a while. Time on the water will help ease my stress levels and also get me excited for this summer when I'll be fishing a lot more.

I have some good stuff coming. This weekend is Troutfest in Townsend, Tennessee, and all be heading up for the day on Sunday most likely. There will be several famous fly fishermen there including Lefty Kreh, Joe Humphries, and Bob Clouser. My plan is to check out some of the events and seminars for a couple of hours and then head into the park to fish a little also. There is no way I can be that close to the Smokies streams and not fish.

Mid-May through mid-June is prime time in the park for good hatches and rising trout. Many of my best days in the Park have been at this time of the year so I'll hopefully be returning often until I leave for Colorado.

Anyway, check back sometime tonight or tomorrow morning to find out how today's fishing went. I'll be chasing bass and bream on a local pond. Maybe I'll finally get that big bass I've been looking for...
