Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 07/01/2018

Heavy rains recently means the Caney Fork River is back up. Streamer fishing will be decent to good, but this is not for everyone. Fishing in the Smokies continues to be excellent.

Wet years normally produce some fantastic fishing in the Smokies and this year is no different. No matter where we fish, it seems that the fishing is amazing this year. We have seen some nice brown trout, big rainbows, and lots of good sized brook trout this year.

Now we are getting into standard summer terrestrial fishing. Ants, inch worms, beetles, and even occasionally hoppers are all getting it done.

On the Caney Fork, flows should start coming down within a week or two. Once we start seeing low water again, the usual nymphs and midges should produce along with some terrestrials and even streamers.

A Diverse Sample

Here is a sample of some of the flies I've been tying lately. Salmonflies will hopefully be important by the time we get to Colorado so I've tied plenty of those, both dries and nymphs. I've also tied some mysis shrimp patterns, midges, Copper Johns, various scuds, and the list could go on. As always, I'm sure my buddy and I will end up tying at the picnic table each day, but I have a good head start. If you want any pattern recipes just let me know.
