Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 06/01/2018

Heavy rains the last couple of days means we will see high water on the tailwaters for the next week or two. Fishing in the Smokies is good to excellent though. That trend will continue as long as we keep getting rain. Brook trout fishing has been quite exceptional so far this year. Lower to mid elevation streams are still fishing well because of the increased flows due to the rainfall. Smallmouth bass streams on the Cumberland Plateau are a bit high but should be fishable again in the next few days.

Remembering Trips Past

Today, as I was thinking about my upcoming trip or trips, my thoughts turned to past trips to places like Colorado and Yellowstone. Some of my favorite memories have no photographic documentation unfortunately. Of course, it seems like having a camera around is the surest way to NOT have a memorable experience. Still, I've been fortunate enough to get many of my memorable moments documented. The large brown on the Taylor that was sipping PMD spinners at sunset, the day of catching big rainbows on the Gunnison, elk in Rocky Mountain National Park, and buffalo in Yellowstone. All of these together form some of my favorite memories of fishing trips past.

While thinking about past trips, I started looking back at some of my favorite pictures from past years. Here are a few examples of why I love to travel "out west:"

  1. Hey David! I really enjoy your photos, both old and new, and am looking forward to seeing the ones you take on your upcoming adventure. I spent the summers of my youth (the 50's & 60's) in MT and WY, but at that time cameras were not something you took fishing with you. But believe it or not...we did have pen & paper! Just last week I discovered a musty old journal that I had hidden away, and in reading it re-dicovered a truth about fishermen. We do tend to exagerate a bit. Seems that I didn't catch quite as many as I thought, nor were they as big as I remembered. Oh well, it was fun reading it anyway.
