Guided Trips


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!

Winter Sunset


  1. Awesome view that you've captured perfect.
    Have fun taking photos, tying flies and fly fishing,

  2. I forgot to ask something. The top picture on your blog, where is it taken? It makes my arm swing an imaginary fly rod in the sleep!!!
    Have fun,

  3. M.O., assuming you mean that blog header where I'm fishing around a boulder, the picture was on the Middle Prong of the Little Pigeon River in the Smoky Mountains (gorge section along trail to Ramsey Cascade). Definitely a beautiful piece of water with some excellent fishing to boot...
