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.

Colored Up


The leaves are turning many different shades of red, orange, and especially yellow.  Right on schedule, the brown trout are getting a lot more aggressive and colored up in their own fall best.  Yesterday was a good day of exploring on two different streams.  I fished a meadow stretch in both and saw more than enough nice browns to keep me interested.  Never saw any monsters but did see one fish that would have been pushing 21-22 inches.  More to come later once I have time to digest the trip.

    Simply, Fall is the most beautiful time of year! My favorite. Fly fishing, Fall Brown Trout, and Football. Tough to beat. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Lovely brown trout! Yes, fall is the time to encounter the big brown trout. Took one of my most memorably trout the 15 of October some years ago. I still remember it as if it was just a couple of days ago. It took me 1 hour and 20 minutes to land him. It was a lovely brown in all it's splendor of fall. Thanks for sharing and we wait for the continuation.
    My best,
    M.O.

    1. Mats, thanks! I'll bet that was quite the fish. It doesn't get any better than beautiful fall browns.
