Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 8/13/2017

Fishing is good to excellent across the area. Caney Fork floats are happening either early or late, and in the Smokies we are fishing the high elevations to beat the heat.

Terrestrials are now a strong producer no matter where you fish. Beetle fishing has been good this summer. There are still fish ready to slam a beetle or hopper. In the mountains I prefer a beetle or ant while on the tailwaters I lean towards a hopper or beetle although ants work well there also. Hike in fishing on the brook trout streams is still good right now although flows are low enough that you need to focus on stealth.

On the Caney Fork, the great sight fishing opportunities of summer are in full gear. Daily midge fishing to big trout is a possibility. Night times can produce some exciting fishing on streamers or even mouse patterns. Just be careful out there when its dark. The river is unforgiving even in the daylight.

Smallmouth bass fishing has been good to great. Fish are looking up as usual for this time of year. When they don't want to hit flies on top, crawdad or baitfish patterns will work.

Need a Good Luck Charm?

Most people could use a little extra good luck while they are out fishing, but how about a good luck charm that simultaneously calls in the big fish and also carries you down the river?  My buddy David Perry over at Southeastern Fly has a Hyde drifter for sale.  I've floated in this boat and can attest to both the good mojo that is in this boat as well as its good handling.  Need to catch a big trout?  This boat has all kinds of big fish attracting abilities...

For more information, please visit David Perry's page and check out the boat!  This would be a perfect first drift boat for someone wanting to get into the float game.  From trout to smallmouth and musky, this boat can do it all.

Want to catch fish like this?






Want to enjoy a relaxing afternoon on the river catching fish?


Then check out this boat!!!

    1. Kevin, same here, except I discovered a few years ago that eventually the good luck wears off and I have to find a new hat. My current hat still seems to have a lot of good luck left though...

  2. I would love to own a drift boat but alas don't have the bread. Someone told me once that I have a lucky face. I don't know if that was a compliment or an insult.
