Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 07/01/2018

Heavy rains recently means the Caney Fork River is back up. Streamer fishing will be decent to good, but this is not for everyone. Fishing in the Smokies continues to be excellent.

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

Now we are getting into standard summer terrestrial fishing. Ants, inch worms, beetles, and even occasionally hoppers are all getting it done.

On the Caney Fork, flows should start coming down within a week or two. Once we start seeing low water again, the usual nymphs and midges should produce along with some terrestrials and even streamers.

Streamer Action Hot

Last weekend's high water event in the Smokies brought the browns out to play.  I almost didn't find out until too late, but got in on the streamer action before things returned to normal.  Lots of fish followed my fly and several hit as well.  Only one actually got its mouth around the big Clouser though.

  1. Beauty Brown. Looks like the Clouser worked nicely. Glad to hear you were able to make it out in time.

  2. Nice brown. If you have browns like that in the streams your fishing, try a Black Ghost, and a Edson Tiger.

  3. Hi David. Surprisingly enough, they can get their mouths around a Clouser without much trouble. Nice Brown.

  5. Say hello to Mr. Brown. Nice brownie. I have yet to be able to get out for some trout fishing due to the weather and my work schedule. One is always better than none!

  6. Beautiful fish! That's quality time frozen in a photo. Speaking of photos your bridge shot as the you photo of the month should make any self respecting fly fisherman drool. That is a great looking stretch of water in the middle of an absolutely beautiful scene!

  7. Midge Man,

    Thanks for the kind words about the photo of the month. That bridge is in the middle of one of my favorite stretches of water to fish...definitely an amazing place!
