Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 6/19/2017

Fishing is good to excellent across the area. The Caney Fork River continues to shine on both high and low water. In the Smokies, frequent rainfall have kept water in the streams so the fish are healthy and ready to eat!

Terrestrials are really coming on strong now. Ants and inchworms continue to get it done, and beetle fishing should be rapidly improving over the next two weeks. Isonychia mayfly nymphs are providing good fishing subsurface along with Golden and Little Yellow Stonefly nymphs. There is still a good variety of mayflies hatching in the higher elevations. Brook trout fishing is about as good as it gets now for those willing to walk. Even fishing roadside is good for now and will continue that way as long as we keep getting rain.

The Caney Fork River continues to fish anywhere from average to good on high water streamer floats. Anyone who wants to target trout with streamers will find this to be exciting fishing. Low water is becoming more and more likely, and if that trend continues we will see some great low water floats. The fish are hungry and we are going into some of the best fishing months on this fine tailwater. Midge hatches have been incredible on low or falling water and the fish are feeding. We have the right flies to catch the fish so book a guided trip now!

Cumberland Plateau smallmouth streams are rounding into fine shape now. Rain will bump flows up again, but in between the fish are hungry and willing to hammer a fly!

Lots To Come and Help Please!!!

Usually it is a good sign for me to have too much to blog about.  At the very least it means I've been able to do some fishing lately.  I have more posts to come on the Everglades, a trip to the Smokies last week, and a tailwater report (big brown trout alert!!!).  While I would love to put them all up at once, I'm too busy to write that many blog entries in proper fashion and, afterall, who would want to read something just tossed together?  For those who are patient, I have lots of great pictures coming up along with those posts so check back often and hopefully I'll get caught up slowly but surely. 

Second, I mentioned this a week ago, but if you didn't see it the first time, please help me out!  I entered a photo in a contest over on Facebook by Yeti Coolers.  You can help me in that contest by going to the photograph and clicking the "Like" button.  That's it!

  1. "While I would love to put them all up at once,..." Well David, it's fine to spread them out one-at-a-time over several days...it makes for daily content that way.

  3. David, your entries are always worth the wait, so take your time. On that subject, I can definitely relate--between working in the field, spending time with my wife, and fishing, it can be hard to find the time to keep the blog current and up to date, at least from my experience...
