Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 06/01/2018

Heavy rains the last couple of days means we will see high water on the tailwaters for the next week or two. Fishing in the Smokies is good to excellent though. That trend will continue as long as we keep getting rain. Brook trout fishing has been quite exceptional so far this year. Lower to mid elevation streams are still fishing well because of the increased flows due to the rainfall. Smallmouth bass streams on the Cumberland Plateau are a bit high but should be fishable again in the next few days.

Nice Browns!!!

My friends Ethan and Joe Mcgroom were out fishing this past weekend and found some super nice fish.  I made it up to the Park myself but had a slow day.  I got on one 18 inch brown as well as a nice 24 inch fish but ended up spooking both.  At another spot I found 3-4 BIG fish in a pod feeding on something near the bottom.  At least I know where they live and will be back.  How awesome would it be to go back and find them rising?!? 

Thankfully some people had a good day out.  Here is a picture of Ethan's nice fish.  Both Ethan and Joe are great fishermen that know how to find the big guys.

  2. David,

    Glad to hear you are pursuing the big guys in the Park--I look forward to seeing pictures when you land them! That 21" fellow you caught earlier in the winter wasn't too shabby either...Beautiful brown caught by Ethan too.

    Here's to more good fishing this winter and early spring,
