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.

North Carolina Gold

While out walking a stream this weekend, I came across a slab of gold in a nice run.  The fish was actively feeding, but I ended up spooking it without a hookup.  Yesterday was a different story.  The fish fell for a caddis pupa...

    Hey David, That's a beautiful brown, and I'm pretty sure that's the one you told me about in the campground Sunday. I did look for the Browns but couldn't find them. I did hook about a dozen Rainbows and landed 9 I believe later in the day. It was very nice to meet you and maybe we can meet and fish over on the River sometime that I'm headed over there.
    Best Regards,

  5. Thanks guys! I was pretty happy about catching that fish, mostly because of the persistance required.

    Rick, it was nice meeting you at Smokemont. Give me a holler if you're headed this way and let's fish...
