Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 06/01/2018

Heavy rains the last couple of days means we will see high water on the tailwaters for the next week or two. Fishing in the Smokies is good to excellent though. That trend will continue as long as we keep getting rain. Brook trout fishing has been quite exceptional so far this year. Lower to mid elevation streams are still fishing well because of the increased flows due to the rainfall. Smallmouth bass streams on the Cumberland Plateau are a bit high but should be fishable again in the next few days.

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.
