FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 01/01/2017

Happy New Years!!! Fishing is going to be tough for a few days. The cold snap has everything icing over except for the tailwaters. If you must fish, stay safe and be prepared for the possibility of getting wet. The streams of the Smokies are almost pointless to fish right now. That said, the forecast suggests there may be some opportunity to fish in the mountains and find a little success starting next Sunday. Temperatures above freezing are what we are looking for here. Not good odds, mind you, but certainly better than being in the deep freeze.

Tailwaters are a bit more reliable through the winter months. Streamer action should be anywhere from average to good depending on the day. On low water on rivers such as the Clinch, throw midges and you should find some fish. The Caney is still quite a ways away from seeing low water so it will be a streamer game almost exclusively.

Two New Blogs

Finally, I have started catching up on some updates here at the Trout Zone.  The biggest I would like to point out to everyone is the addition of two more blogs to our list of "Great Blogs."  These are the blogs that I personally frequent the most although I check in with many others from time to time as well.  The newest additions to this list are the Backcountry Journal and the Gink and Gasoline Blog.  Both contain great writing as well as great pictures and stories on fly fishing, a sure promise of interesting reading.  Check them both out!
