Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 07/01/2018

Heavy rains recently means the Caney Fork River is back up. Streamer fishing will be decent to good, but this is not for everyone. Fishing in the Smokies continues to be excellent.

Wet years normally produce some fantastic fishing in the Smokies and this year is no different. No matter where we fish, it seems that the fishing is amazing this year. We have seen some nice brown trout, big rainbows, and lots of good sized brook trout this year.

Now we are getting into standard summer terrestrial fishing. Ants, inch worms, beetles, and even occasionally hoppers are all getting it done.

On the Caney Fork, flows should start coming down within a week or two. Once we start seeing low water again, the usual nymphs and midges should produce along with some terrestrials and even streamers.

Floating the Caney

On Sunday I made it out with a couple of friends to float the Caney.  As always we had a great time and even managed to fool a few trout.  Rain was threatening throughout the day but never really materialized to any great extent.  I was a little disappointed because I wanted to throw streamers and wanted some downright nasty weather.  Still, we managed a few fish, mostly on nymphs.

The high point of the day was seeing some BIG stripers, one of which was feeding in a shallow riffle.  Really I wish these fish would stay away from the trout but when you do see one it is pretty exciting.  In fact, I might have to start doing some striper fishing again sometime soon.

For a little more on this float, check out David Perry's blog over at Southeastern Fly.
