Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 1/6/2017
The fishing was good when the water temperature spiked into the low 50s to start the new year. Fish were taken on a variety of nymphs from big stonefly patterns to small nymphs and midges. Most fish were in classic winter time water. Think slow and deep this time of year. My best fish of 2017 came on New Years Day and it hit a large streamer while fishing Little River in the Smokies. Good way to start the year!

Now is the time to start thinking about spring fishing. The bookings are rolling in for float trips on the Caney Fork. Spring hatch trips in the Smokies will book quickly as well so contact me soon if you want to get out in 2017!

Plenty of Water

The trout must be happy lately, and if not, I'm sure they will be all next summer.  That's because it has rained, and rained, and then rained some more.  All this cold water will translate into plenty of cool water for the tailwaters in another 6-8 months or at least we hope.  Of course there are a lot of factors that come into play but right now things are looking good.  Unfortunately the fishing will continue to be difficult on the tailwaters for the next couple of weeks at least and probably longer for the wade fisherman.

I spent a few days at Fall Creek Falls this week and was able to enjoy the highest falls east of the Mississippi (coming in at a little over 250 feet) under much higher flows than usual.  The spitting rain and fog made things difficult with the camera meaning I didn't shoot for very long.  A few shots are always better than none however and I was reasonably happy with the result.
