Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 09/14/2018

Heavy rains are returning to the mountains of east Tennessee with the remnants of Hurricane Florence. Hopefully we get just enough and not too much water!

Wet years normally produce some fantastic fishing in the Smokies and this year has been 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.

Fall fishing is looking awesome this year. The Smokies in particular will shine. Currently we are still seeing good numbers of Golden Stoneflies and Isonychias. Soon we should start seeing more of the fall Blue-winged Olives and fall caddis. Terrestrials are still going strong as well so remember your box of ants, inchworms, beetles, and other goodies.

The Caney Fork has picked up slightly from some very slow fishing earlier this summer. As we go into fall, the fishing will be decent although not great. I recommend getting on the guide calendar for a trip next spring in May as that month should be killer. Of course, the winter shad kill will be awesome as well.

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...
