Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 05/08/2019

Fishing is good to excellent just about everywhere now. Lots of bugs are hatching including mayflies, caddis, and stoneflies. Little yellow stoneflies are hatching well now making a nymph imitation a good bet. Light Cahills, Sulfurs, Pale Evening Duns, March Browns, Blue-winged Olives, and others are on the water at times. Golden stones are now hatching well also. Try a #14 Yellow Stimulator and a #16 bead head Pheasant Tail and be ready to catch fish!

On the Clinch River, sulfurs have started and fish are responding to dry fly imitations. This is some of the most exciting and also the most challenging fishing of the whole year. Pinpoint accuracy at distance is needed, but the rewards can be large. Water is now mostly higher making float trips a requirement. If it will quit raining sometime soon, lower flows should return.

The Caney Fork is up and down each day. Right now it is mostly up and will stay that way as long as it keeps raining. Streamer fishing in particular was great on one generator. Moving forward, this river should continue to fish better and better for the next month or two.

Warm water streams are starting to turn on very well. Smallmouth bass are aggressive now. This is the spawning season for these fish, so please be careful where you wade and leave spawning fish alone.

Trending Cooler

The weather is approaching that of winter.  Comfortable temperatures are lingering after each snowstorm.  However, piles of snow are still found in sheltered ares, suggesting that while it feels great in the middle of the day, the daily average temperature is a lot closer to the freezing mark.







Wishing to be out fishing has never been as good as actually going.  The final hard charge into Thanksgiving break has kept me busy enough that I have not been on the water for almost two weeks now.  Now dreams of Tennessee are keeping me focused.  Great Smoky Mountains, here I come...

  1. I've already put my gear up for the year but if the weather cooperates, who knows.

    1. Yeah we should meet up sometime. I actually end up down that direction fairly often eating at some of the places just across 36 from you in Louisville...some good restaurants down there!
