Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 07/01/2018

Heavy rains recently means the Caney Fork River is back up. Streamer fishing will be decent to good, but this is not for everyone. Fishing in the Smokies continues to be excellent.

Wet years normally produce some fantastic fishing in the Smokies and this year is no different. No matter where we fish, it seems that the fishing is amazing this year. We have seen some nice brown trout, big rainbows, and lots of good sized brook trout this year.

Now we are getting into standard summer terrestrial fishing. Ants, inch worms, beetles, and even occasionally hoppers are all getting it done.

On the Caney Fork, flows should start coming down within a week or two. Once we start seeing low water again, the usual nymphs and midges should produce along with some terrestrials and even streamers.

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...
