Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 11/16/2017

Fishing is good on the Clinch River right now and that is where I'm doing most of my guiding and fishing. The Smokies have been good as well.

In the Smokies, the brown trout are wrapping up the spawn. Over the next few weeks, the opportunity to catch larger than average brown trout is definitely elevated. I like to throw nymphs or streamers right now and through the winter. Next spring should be good with hatches starting by the first of March and peaking by late April or early May. This is one of the best times to fish in the Smokies so start planning that trip now!

The Caney Fork is about a week away from seeing some more reasonable water levels. If the flows drop, expect some very good fishing as we move into the winter.

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,

    Rick(NC Flydancer)

  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...
