Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 06/01/2018

Heavy rains the last couple of days means we will see high water on the tailwaters for the next week or two. Fishing in the Smokies is good to excellent though. That trend will continue as long as we keep getting rain. Brook trout fishing has been quite exceptional so far this year. Lower to mid elevation streams are still fishing well because of the increased flows due to the rainfall. Smallmouth bass streams on the Cumberland Plateau are a bit high but should be fishable again in the next few days.

  1. Hi!

    Wow! Are those stoneflies? We don't have stoneflies of that size here in Sweden but I've experienced a magnificent hatch of huge caddis (Phryganea Grandis I think it is) and the trout just went crazy. Big dry flies and they took it without hesitation. Marvellous! Hope you get a big hatch of those critters that will certainly be spectacular.

    1. Yes, they are Salmonflies and generally 2-3 inches long. Very impressive bugs and the fish love them...

    2. That's understandable. The caddis flies I mentioned also reach 2-3 inches but were impossible to catch. Would have been nice to have a picture of them.

  2. I guess the question is: Can you wait 4 months?

    1. Mark, I'll be out hitting the water often over the next few months. There are some great hatches before the Salmonflies to keep me occupied...

    I can't wait to get back on the Caney Fork. Will you be fishing the tailrace this year? I know you don't live in Tennessee anymore but I have a feeling you haven't forgot this great tailrace.

    1. Bill, I'm sure I'll fish the Caney at some point. I fished it last time I was home and had a good time. I'm wondering how it will fish this year with the high water this winter. What it really needs is a couple of dry years...
