Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 11/21/2017

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. The Caney Fork is just now starting to offer some decent windows again so that is great news!

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. Spring is one of the best times to fish in the Smokies so start planning that trip now!

The Caney Fork is starting to offer some wade opportunities as well as some good schedules for half day floats. If you would like to get in a late season float or wade trip here, let me know as I have a few openings over the next few weeks.

This winter is looking like a good bet on the musky streams. We'll be out hunting the toothy critters in the near future so stay tuned for more on that!

Fly Tying Material?

Need some feathers for the winter fly tying?  Maybe you should head to Utah where dead waterfowl were apparently laying all over the ground.  According to the story from CBS, the birds crash landed when they mistook a Walmart parking lot for a lake.  At least 1500 birds didn't survive, but close to 3000 were rescued and taken to area lakes.  The legality of taking the dead birds for their feathers is probably sketchy at best, but just think of all the flies you could be tying...

  1. Since it happened before, I wonder if there is something that can be done to prevent a future crash?
