UPDATE: 2/7/2016 Smokies Fly Fishing Report -- Cold water is back for the next week or so. In fact, it looks like we may end up with some snow over the next 2-3 days. Expect the fishing to be slow although a few fish can usually be dredged up on nymphs and midges. If you want a shot at some larger fish, try throwing some streamers. In particular, olive or brown sculpin patterns might get a big brown trout interested.
Caney Fork Fly Fishing Report: Flows are up even more than they have been but fish can still be caught on streamers. The cold months are streamer season for this river so contact me about a float trip if you want to enjoy this fishing at TroutZoneAnglers@gmail.com or call/text (931) 261-1884.
Cumberland Plateau Fishing Report: The musky streams have been running high since the heavy rain last week but are dropping closer to a good fishable level and now is the time to get out and chase the toothy critters. Keep an eye on flows and get out if the weather warms even a little.

Another epic visit to the Florida Everglades is now history. The trip was a lot of fun for many reasons including the paddling, lots of wildlife, and yes, even a little fishing. Things like camping on the beach were definitely a huge plus as well. I have well over 10 gigabytes of just my own pictures and video to go over, not to mention similar quantities from my friends as well. Over the next few days I'll be posting pictures, stories, and other tidbits from the trip.
In the meantime, spring appears to be in full swing here in Tennessee. That means I have lots of tying and fishing to do. Today I'm heading out for a little while to check on a local bluegill spot. Check back often over the next serveral days as I provide lots of updates...
