Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 11/16/2017

Fishing is good on the Clinch River right now and that is where I'm doing most of my guiding and fishing. The Smokies have been good as well.

In the Smokies, the brown trout are wrapping up the spawn. Over the next few weeks, the opportunity to catch larger than average brown trout is definitely elevated. I like to throw nymphs or streamers right now and through the winter. Next spring should be good with hatches starting by the first of March and peaking by late April or early May. This is one of the best times to fish in the Smokies so start planning that trip now!

The Caney Fork is about a week away from seeing some more reasonable water levels. If the flows drop, expect some very good fishing as we move into the winter.

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.
