Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 11/7/2019

Fall fishing is in full swing. The Clinch River has been fishing great if you want to hit a tailwater. The Smokies are fishing well most days but that could change soon. Forecast low temperatures by the middle of next week are in the mid teens!

The Smokies are up and down based on rain and cold fronts. When its on this can be some of the best fishing of the year. Fish will feed heavily as we approach the lean cold months of winter. Orange Elk Hair Caddis are catching fish as well as Pheasant Tail nymphs, Prince Nymphs, and some other things like caddis pupa patterns. Don't forget to have your Blue-winged Olive patterns this time of year.

On tailwaters like the Clinch, brown trout and some fall spawn rainbows are doing their thing. This is a good time to review good ethics when it comes to spawning trout. Remember that these are the next generation of trout and the best thing you can do is to leave them alone. Avoid wading through spawning areas and don't fish for obvious spawners.

The Caney is still not fishing well. This should change soon as we generally start to see some opportunity for streamer fishing in December and continuing through the winter. Next spring should bring good fishing again.

Huge Sale

There is currently a huge sale going on at the Orvis Sale Outlet.  I just found some killer deals on tungsten beads and some extra wading boots for a friend.  Currently, everything that is already on sale is eligible for an extra 25% off but that special deal is only good through THIS Sunday.  In other words, you only have today to take advantage of anything you need to get.  While there aren't tons of great things available, there are some killer deals on wading boots and a few other items.  If you need to pick some boots up cheap for your kid or anything else, now is the time to do it!!!
