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!

Tying Demo

I would like to invite everyone who can make it to join me at Little River Outfitters in Townsend, TN on Sunday February 19th for a tying demo I will be doing.  So far I haven't determined exactly what I'll be tying although I'm currently leaning towards simply doing a mix between some of my favorite tailwater and mountain patterns.  The focus will be on effective flies that also happen to be anywhere from mostly to ridiculously easy to tie.  I want to do two tailwater trout flies, as well as my top striper fly that catches all my fish like this...



I will also tie another streamer or two as well as some Smoky Mountain patterns that either I have developed or modified for use in the Park.  I might also tie a brown trout pattern or two that are effective in the Park...
