FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 06/01/2018

Heavy rains the last couple of days means we will see high water on the tailwaters for the next week or two. Fishing in the Smokies is good to excellent though. That trend will continue as long as we keep getting rain. Brook trout fishing has been quite exceptional so far this year. Lower to mid elevation streams are still fishing well because of the increased flows due to the rainfall. Smallmouth bass streams on the Cumberland Plateau are a bit high but should be fishable again in the next few days.

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?
