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!

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,

    Iain
