Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 06/07/2019

Fishing is good to excellent just about everywhere now. In the Smokies, water has been getting a little on the low side, but rainfall over the next few days should help that situation. The recent dry spell has been great for the tailwaters. Big fish are being caught and flows are perfect for both wading and floating!

On the Clinch River, sulfurs are still hatching and fish are responding when bugs are on the water. Otherwise, midges will keep the fish fed.

The Caney Fork has settled into a very good schedule. As of right now, the Corps of Engineers is giving us some excellent schedules to keep just enough water in the river. Hopefully this will continue as we go through the hot summer months. We are also hoping that we don't get too much rain this weekend. Lots of rain will mess this river up sooner rather than later.

Warm water streams are fishing very well now. Lots of smallmouth bass are being caught and mostly on topwater. If you have been wanting to chase these fish, now is the time to go!

A Clue

Here is a clue as to where we fished yesterday.  Any guesses as to where this is at?  Be specific!!!  I will send 6 of yesterday's hot fly to the first person to correctly identify the exact location.  Guess away!!!

  2. Not fair. Having never been to North Carolina or Tennessee how would one know it was GSMNP??

    1. Mark, a good point so I guess I'll recommend you visit the Smokies! In all seriousness though, stay tuned for more. This particular contest is admittedly geared towards my southeast US friends, but I'll have some more contests coming over the next few months that will be suitable for everyone who wants to participate...

  3. I don't know which stream that is but I heard the theme to Deliverance while I was reading this. I'm just going to back away slowly.

  5. All good guesses thus far but none are correct. Also, I'm hoping for a correct answer that is a bit more specific than just a stream name...

  6. Little river above Huskey Gap.

    1. Hans, you are getting warm. Can you be any more specific?

  7. I know I have fished there, and I believe I have it narrowed down to one of two locations. I am going to sort thru some old pics and see if I can find it... I will post again soon.

    1. Travis, you are getting close I'm sure let's hear what you think...

  8. The way the creek is curving doesn't match up, It's either the bridge crossing Fish Camp Prong at the Goshen Prong trailhead or it's on the mainstream up towards camp site 24. I am leaning towards Goshen Prong trailhead though.

    1. Hans, your second guess is the correct one. I'm going to give this contest to you based off of your original guess because it was pretty close. It is the bridge immediately below #24 looking downstream while standing in the creek. Shoot me an email with your address, and I'll get the flies out to you sometime next week. I'm on the road now so it won't be before then...
