Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 03/11/2019

Cold weather has given way to early spring. Daffodils are blooming and bugs are hatching. Look for Quill Gordon and Blue Quill emergences in the Smokies along with Little Black Caddis, Little Black Stoneflies, and Early Brown Stoneflies. Blue-winged Olives will be hatching, especially on foul weather days.

Other area waters are high from recent rains. The Clinch River is probably at least a month out from being fishable. The Caney Fork is probably more like two months at best. Stay home, tie flies, or head for the mountains.

Warm water options will turn on if we can get some days without rain. Stillwater options are already producing some bass and bream. River smallmouth bass should be good once flows drop and waters warm.

What A Trip!!!


Thanksgiving break was incredible in so many ways.  Seeing family and friends was the best part, but I also was able to get out and rock climb two days and also spent two days on the water.  One day was spent in the Smokies with my buddy Jayson.  During that day, I probably saw more truly big fish out than on any other trip.  The other day was spent on a relaxing float down the Caney Fork with David Perry.  Big fish were caught (he has had clients hook and land fish into the 25 inch range this fall and NOT off of redds either...) including one of the prettiest rainbows I have caught on that river as well as a big brown by David P. that took us for a ride with me rowing furiously in pursuit.

Before the trip, I took a trip with friends up to Estes Park and have pictures to share from that adventure as well.  Of course, as much as I enjoy blogging, other things will come first so don't expect all the updates at once.  Hopefully by the end of the week I'll be caught up though...
