Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 06/07/2019

Fishing is good to excellent just about everywhere now. In the Smokies, water has been getting a little on the low side, but rainfall over the next few days should help that situation. The recent dry spell has been great for the tailwaters. Big fish are being caught and flows are perfect for both wading and floating!

On the Clinch River, sulfurs are still hatching and fish are responding when bugs are on the water. Otherwise, midges will keep the fish fed.

The Caney Fork has settled into a very good schedule. As of right now, the Corps of Engineers is giving us some excellent schedules to keep just enough water in the river. Hopefully this will continue as we go through the hot summer months. We are also hoping that we don't get too much rain this weekend. Lots of rain will mess this river up sooner rather than later.

Warm water streams are fishing very well now. Lots of smallmouth bass are being caught and mostly on topwater. If you have been wanting to chase these fish, now is the time to go!

Firsts

First brown of the year nailed a white streamer and wanted it in a bad way.  The fish swirled on the fly once so I threw back and it inhaled the fly like it was the last meal it would get.  Not a bad way to kick off another year of fishing for browns!


Also got that first smallmouth and it was definitely a surprise!  Normally I don't expect to see smallies out this time of year, but it just goes to show that fish do still have to eat.  Those that think fishing in cold weather is pointless just need to get out more.  If you spend enough time on the water and learn what the fish are up to, the catches will follow...

  1. Did both fish come from the same river? If so, where? I understand if you don't want to be too specific... so be as discreet as you like.

  2. Jay,

    It is not a secret. As much as I wish I had my own brown trout stream hidden away somewhere I don't. It was on Little River in the Smokies. Caught both fish on the same fly!
