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.

Coming Soon

I am really behind on posting here. I have several fishing reports as well as some stories from a canoe trip in Florida and a product review. This weekend I fished the Caney on Friday and the Smokies on Sunday so check back soon for those reports. This afternoon I should have some free time and plan on doing some updates...

  1. Relax. It's not like anyone's paying you to do this, so fish first, write later, feel guilt about it after you're dead.

  2. Thanks for the reminder/advice...I start fishing and it takes up all my free time. Wish I could write faster to keep up but then it just becomes a chore and that's no fun either...

  3. No pressure on the posts; I'm close to a month behind on my last outing! Fishing comes first, like The Trout Underground said, not to mention life in general (I guess life and fishing can often be one and the same).

    Write when you have the time, and you can enjoy it--if the blog becomes a chore, that kind of defeats its purpose in my mind. I have had to remind myself not to take my blog too seriously, or rather, to spend some quality time on it when I have the time.

    Besides, people will appreciate your posts just as much, whether they come out promptly or a bit later on down the line...
