Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 01/08/2019

In the Smokies, fishing has been good to great with unseasonably mild temperatures. With colder weather in store over the next couple of days, expect the fishing to drop off a bit. In other words, things will be more like normal winter fishing conditions in the short term. At some point we expect winter to return for real as well, but time will tell on that one.

On the tailwaters, we are dealing with massive amounts of water with no end in sight. The Caney Fork and Clinch Rivers are both rolling at very high levels. While a few fish can certainly be found on each of these, there are safer and better places to catch a few trout. The one bit of good news here? The reservoirs seem to be mostly falling now so somewhere down the road we might get better flows again.

Musky fishing should be starting to turn on. Flows are starting to drop into what we consider to be the sweet spot on our favorite rivers. Check back for more on this as we have time to get out on the water.

Old Picture...

Perusing old trip pictures is one way to help a case of cabin fever.  Last week I was examining some of my trout pictures and came across an old favorite from back in 2007.  I love how this picture turned out. Not a particularly large fish or anything, but I like how the picture is framed and the different perspective on the release...

  1. Indeed a lovely picture! But seeing this awesome colored trout just increases my cabin fever.
    Have fun down memory lane,

  2. M.O.,

    The cabin fever is almost unbearable for me. I may have to try and swing a trip to the mountains in the next few days to ease my suffering...
