Guided Trips


Things have changed a lot since the last report. Unseasonably warm weather has kicked off the first hatches of the year in the Great Smoky Mountains while an extremely wet February means all of the tailwaters are blown out across middle and east Tennessee.

If you want to fish in the Smokies, nymphs and streamers will be your best bet unless you encounter a hatch. In that case, Blue Quills and Quill Gordons should be in your arsenal as well as Blue-winged Olives.

For now, just forget about the tailwaters in the short term. continued rain means it will be at least another month before the tailwaters are fishable again. With luck, we can start thinking about some streamer float trips on the Caney Fork in mid to late March, although that may be optimistic. In the meantime, head for the mountains and enjoy chasing the wild trout there.

Most of you have noticed the options below most of the photographs on the Trout Zone including options to buy or download a copy of the photograph.  Many of you probably haven't spent much time exploring the options, so I just want to mention that the eCard option is completely free!  If you enjoy the pictures you see here and want to share with someone else, it is quick and easy to turn it into an eCard. 

Also, please take a moment to check out the Trout Zone Photoblog where I highlight some of my personal favorites from time to time.  As always, thanks for stopping by the Trout Zone!
