Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 11/21/2017

Fishing is good on the Clinch River right now and that is where I'm doing most of my guiding and fishing. The Smokies have been good as well. The Caney Fork is just now starting to offer some decent windows again so that is great news!

In the Smokies, the brown trout are wrapping up the spawn. Over the next few weeks, the opportunity to catch larger than average brown trout is definitely elevated. I like to throw nymphs or streamers right now and through the winter. Next spring should be good with hatches starting by the first of March and peaking by late April or early May. Spring is one of the best times to fish in the Smokies so start planning that trip now!

The Caney Fork is starting to offer some wade opportunities as well as some good schedules for half day floats. If you would like to get in a late season float or wade trip here, let me know as I have a few openings over the next few weeks.

This winter is looking like a good bet on the musky streams. We'll be out hunting the toothy critters in the near future so stay tuned for more on that!

Really???

Yesterday I tried out one of my striper spots with a couple of buddies. The fishing was slow to say the least. With nothing better to do I stuck with it until it was quite late. Finally, something hit like a freight train. After a relatively short fight, I had a small striper in for a couple of pictures. I'm still trying to figure out what I was thinking during the picture...probably something along the lines of, "Really??? I drove here for this little fish?" It must have been too late to be thinking clearly though because I always appreciate my time on the water regardless of the fish I catch...

  3. Thanks Terry. I'm normally not all that picky about the fish...

    Mark, I definitely have to agree with you on that one...

  4. Just want you to know, after reading several of your posts and checking out your photos on picasa, you are living my dream dude. I am really looking forward to having the freedom, financial and otherwise, to pursue fly fishing the way you do. Enjoy it man!

  5. Nice fish! It's a good catch, you're very lucky!

    Well, let me share with you guys my thoughts. Rivers and other bodies of water should always be maintained clean and well preserved. When I heard about the rehabilitation of Ogden River, wherein Gadi Leshem is the consultant of the project, I was so relieved. Thanks for sharing your fishing experience, David!
