Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 06/07/2019

Fishing is good to excellent just about everywhere now. In the Smokies, water has been getting a little on the low side, but rainfall over the next few days should help that situation. The recent dry spell has been great for the tailwaters. Big fish are being caught and flows are perfect for both wading and floating!

On the Clinch River, sulfurs are still hatching and fish are responding when bugs are on the water. Otherwise, midges will keep the fish fed.

The Caney Fork has settled into a very good schedule. As of right now, the Corps of Engineers is giving us some excellent schedules to keep just enough water in the river. Hopefully this will continue as we go through the hot summer months. We are also hoping that we don't get too much rain this weekend. Lots of rain will mess this river up sooner rather than later.

Warm water streams are fishing very well now. Lots of smallmouth bass are being caught and mostly on topwater. If you have been wanting to chase these fish, now is the time to go!

High Water

High water is the theme across middle Tennessee today.  Rivers like the Caney Fork are high and look to remain that way for an extended amount of time.  Upstream, Great Falls Reservoir is dumping a lot of water right now, like 59,398 cfs and still rising.  All that water will end up downstream in Center Hill Lake which means it will eventually will come on down through the tailwater section. 

The Cumberland Plateau region and much of east Tennessee is under a flood warning as many small streams have burst their banks.  Needless to say, fishing will be on the back burner for a while as water levels return to normal.  The exception to this will be with the anglers chasing large fish.  For those in the know, this might be one of the best times to chase a trophy.

If you can, get out there and throw streamers!  You just might tie into the fish of a lifetime...

  1. Keep all that rain in middle TN. We don't want it up here in upper east TN.
