Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 11/21/2017

Fishing is good on the Clinch River right now and that is where I'm doing most of my guiding and fishing. The Smokies have been good as well. The Caney Fork is just now starting to offer some decent windows again so that is great news!

In the Smokies, the brown trout are wrapping up the spawn. Over the next few weeks, the opportunity to catch larger than average brown trout is definitely elevated. I like to throw nymphs or streamers right now and through the winter. Next spring should be good with hatches starting by the first of March and peaking by late April or early May. Spring is one of the best times to fish in the Smokies so start planning that trip now!

The Caney Fork is starting to offer some wade opportunities as well as some good schedules for half day floats. If you would like to get in a late season float or wade trip here, let me know as I have a few openings over the next few weeks.

This winter is looking like a good bet on the musky streams. We'll be out hunting the toothy critters in the near future so stay tuned for more on that!

There's A Brookie In There

How would you go about catching this fish???  It was just relaxing on the bottom of this beaver pond...

  1. Plop a small light weighted bugger right next it then start stripping it away really fast.

  2. Having experienced the "Brookie in the beaver dam pond" trick, I would put a mini-crawler on a hook (no weight), toss it out, and the Brookie will come.

  3. If I was here at home in Florida I would grab the cast net and give it a toss. Brookie caught gauranteed. But since we have no brookies here and I love fishing for them so much I spend half my income every year traveling to the ends of the earth to try to just hook one. I would probably just sit there and watch it for a while.

    1. Fishfreek, it must be difficult to live in Florida if you love fishing for brookies. I would really miss the mountains if I lived down there...

  5. David it makes for a lot of traveling during the year. But for now as with most the job rules. I am working on changing that but it will take a couple more years.
