Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 2/11/2017
Fishing has been good lately, both in the Smokies and on the tailwaters. I have been privileged to spend time on both tailwaters and in the Smokies recently. Up in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, a few bugs are showing up with the warm weather we've been experiencing. With temperatures supposed to be cooling again this week, I don't expect huge hatches. That said, blue quills, early brown stoneflies, little black stoneflies, and probably some little black caddis should be trickling off. This will be especially true when we get a string of warm days. Quill gordon mayflies are not far behind now with the warm winter we've had.

On the tailwaters, the fishing has been mostly good. The Caney Fork is fishing well on streamer floats. Some high water nymphing is picking up a few fish as well. Several people have taken advantage of my special February tailwater trip to book streamer floats. If you haven't a clue what I'm talking about, sign up for my newsletter so you can stay informed about specials on guide trips and other things.

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!

Thinking

When you are at work and daydreaming, what are you normally thinking about?  I catch myself thinking not only about fishing but the beautiful places where the sport takes me.  When all else fails, I'm thinking of a favorite river and what the water looks like in those first hours of daylight or perhaps right as the sun is setting and the fish are getting active....something like this:

  1. Yes, that really is an important part of our sport. Appreciating all the beautiful places it takes us. Unfortunately I've seen some of my favorite places spoiled and damaged by greedy persons that are just out to get money of everything instead of letting beautiful places be alone for everyone to enjoy.

    Have fun daydreaming and fly fishing in beautiful places,
    M.O.

  2. Nothing wrong with daydreaming at work as long as your boss doesn't catch you. Once you retire, you can daydream at home, I do.
