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.

Now on Facebook

Somewhat reluctantly, the Trout Zone is now on Facebook.  Yesterday evening I was informed by my cousin Nathan (fish catchin' magician occasionally featured here at the Trout Zone both for his fishing skills and photography) that he had set up a Facebook page for my blog and set me as an administrator. I have been contemplating this for some time but have not taken the plunge so to speak.  Anyway, you can now find my blog on Facebook.  Please spread the word and stop by and say hello. Thanks!!!

  1. As I mentioned on FB, you'll regret the decision. A Facebook page takes a lot more babysitting than a blog does. That being said, I have 162 people on my blog and 380 on Facebook. So I guess I won't complain.

    1. Howard, since he started it for me, I may make my cousin take care of the page. I'm not sure if all the babysitting sounds very appealing...
