Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 01/17/2019

Colder weather lately has slowed things down a touch in the Smokies. Thankfully, however, the streams haven't really dropped below 40 degrees so there are always some fish to be found. With a big rain event forecast for this weekend followed by sharply colder temperatures, get out and fish sooner rather than later. Nymphs or streamers are the name of the game this time of year.

On the tailwaters, we are dealing with massive amounts of water That said, while lots of rain this weekend may set us further back, there is a glimmer of hope on the horizon. The overall trend over the next 1-3 months is for drier conditions which should allow flows to stabilize and at least allow us to get some float trips in.

Musky fishing has been decent as of late. Flows are generally just about perfect on our favorite musky rivers. With cold weather ahead, this is something we'll probably be doing more of...

Random Monday

Fishing continues to be seasonally abnormal.  Warm temperatures and a lack of precipitation means area stillwaters are already getting low and warm.  This does not bode well for the summer fishing but a chance of rain both today and this next weekend will provide a welcome reprieve.  In fact, next weekend should usher in much cooler temperatures at least in the short term. 

I have a break from teaching this week with the last break before summer starts this Tuesday.  The Smokies are in my plans, hopefully for a couple of nights.  I may hit up a local lake or pond one evening this week, but if the past few days are any indication, it might be worth my time to find somewhere else to fish. 

As the local fishing continues to be challenging, I find myself spending more time with the camera.  The other evening I got the bright idea to try and shoot the evening sky along with the first stars and planets to make themselves visible.  One thing led to another, and soon I was getting some pretty intriguing pictures.
