Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 8/13/2017

Fishing is good to excellent across the area. Caney Fork floats are happening either early or late, and in the Smokies we are fishing the high elevations to beat the heat.

Terrestrials are now a strong producer no matter where you fish. Beetle fishing has been good this summer. There are still fish ready to slam a beetle or hopper. In the mountains I prefer a beetle or ant while on the tailwaters I lean towards a hopper or beetle although ants work well there also. Hike in fishing on the brook trout streams is still good right now although flows are low enough that you need to focus on stealth.

On the Caney Fork, the great sight fishing opportunities of summer are in full gear. Daily midge fishing to big trout is a possibility. Night times can produce some exciting fishing on streamers or even mouse patterns. Just be careful out there when its dark. The river is unforgiving even in the daylight.

Smallmouth bass fishing has been good to great. Fish are looking up as usual for this time of year. When they don't want to hit flies on top, crawdad or baitfish patterns will work.

Heading Out

Finally! Today is the big day, and I'll be leaving in another couple of hours. Right now it looks like the Salmonflies are getting started in the Black Canyon so our timing is just about perfect. Other rivers and streams we are planning on fishing should be starting to fish well soon as runoff slows. Check back often for updates as I'm hoping to get a few pictures up every few days if possible!

    Hey man good luck out there. Make sure you post plenty of pictures for all us guys who can only dream of going out there for now. I can't complain though my dad and I are headed down to the smokies on wed. to chase some brookies to finish off our smoky mountain slam. Staying down at campsites 24 and 21. I can't wait til I graduate from college and can afford to take a trip out west.
