Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 11/21/2017

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. The Caney Fork is just now starting to offer some decent windows again so that is great news!

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. Spring is one of the best times to fish in the Smokies so start planning that trip now!

The Caney Fork is starting to offer some wade opportunities as well as some good schedules for half day floats. If you would like to get in a late season float or wade trip here, let me know as I have a few openings over the next few weeks.

This winter is looking like a good bet on the musky streams. We'll be out hunting the toothy critters in the near future so stay tuned for more on that!

Dogwood Winter



East Tennessee is just emerging from a recently rare coldsnap.  We have not experienced frost since early March so you can only imagine what two nights of frost have done.  Thankfully I think the majority of trees are handling it pretty well.  Flowers haven't appreciated the freezing temperatures as much.  The blossoms on this pink dogwood have rebelled against the cold by rapidly dying, their drooping petals covered in frost. 


By this weekend, the temperatures should be more reasonable again so if you live in the southeast, get ready for an epic weekend of fishing!
