Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 8/13/2017

Fishing is good to excellent across the area. Caney Fork floats are happening either early or late, and in the Smokies we are fishing the high elevations to beat the heat.

Terrestrials are now a strong producer no matter where you fish. Beetle fishing has been good this summer. There are still fish ready to slam a beetle or hopper. In the mountains I prefer a beetle or ant while on the tailwaters I lean towards a hopper or beetle although ants work well there also. Hike in fishing on the brook trout streams is still good right now although flows are low enough that you need to focus on stealth.

On the Caney Fork, the great sight fishing opportunities of summer are in full gear. Daily midge fishing to big trout is a possibility. Night times can produce some exciting fishing on streamers or even mouse patterns. Just be careful out there when its dark. The river is unforgiving even in the daylight.

Smallmouth bass fishing has been good to great. Fish are looking up as usual for this time of year. When they don't want to hit flies on top, crawdad or baitfish patterns will work.

Settling In

The initial high stress moments of moving are about over.  Settling in can take a bit longer though.  I hope to get things happening again here on my blog including a few updates and pictures.  If you have been wondering where I have been but did not notice that I was moving, I am now in Colorado close to Boulder.  Naturally I will be working hard but also hope to get out and enjoy the outdoors in this beautiful state.  Last weekend I even caught my first trout in Colorado.  More to come on that soon...

  2. Glad to here you're settling in. Saw you at the Apple store the other week, but you had already left by the time I finished with my purchase, so I didn't get a chance to say hello.
