FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 1/6/2017 The fishing was good when the water temperature spiked into the low 50s to start the new year. Fish were taken on a variety of nymphs from big stonefly patterns to small nymphs and midges. Most fish were in classic winter time water. Think slow and deep this time of year. My best fish of 2017 came on New Years Day and it hit a large streamer while fishing Little River in the Smokies. Good way to start the year!
Now is the time to start thinking about spring fishing. The bookings are rolling in for float trips on the Caney Fork. Spring hatch trips in the Smokies will book quickly as well so contact me soon if you want to get out in 2017!
