Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 09/14/2018

Heavy rains are returning to the mountains of east Tennessee with the remnants of Hurricane Florence. Hopefully we get just enough and not too much water!

Wet years normally produce some fantastic fishing in the Smokies and this year has been 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.

Fall fishing is looking awesome this year. The Smokies in particular will shine. Currently we are still seeing good numbers of Golden Stoneflies and Isonychias. Soon we should start seeing more of the fall Blue-winged Olives and fall caddis. Terrestrials are still going strong as well so remember your box of ants, inchworms, beetles, and other goodies.

The Caney Fork has picked up slightly from some very slow fishing earlier this summer. As we go into fall, the fishing will be decent although not great. I recommend getting on the guide calendar for a trip next spring in May as that month should be killer. Of course, the winter shad kill will be awesome as well.

October Sunset

Here in Colorado, the sunsets are often just as spectacular as those back home.  In fact, I'm beginning to think that my proximity to the mountains gives me a distinct advantage when it comes to seeing great sunsets.  The mountains create enough of their own weather that there are usually a few clouds around to gather the suns last rays as it sinks in the west.  Here is one shot from a few days ago.


Each morning, I'm also noticing that the chance of an amazing sunrise is also quite high!  Whether or not it is worth getting up early enough to enjoy the sky is a different story...
