Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 6/19/2017

Fishing is good to excellent across the area. The Caney Fork River continues to shine on both high and low water. In the Smokies, frequent rainfall have kept water in the streams so the fish are healthy and ready to eat!

Terrestrials are really coming on strong now. Ants and inchworms continue to get it done, and beetle fishing should be rapidly improving over the next two weeks. Isonychia mayfly nymphs are providing good fishing subsurface along with Golden and Little Yellow Stonefly nymphs. There is still a good variety of mayflies hatching in the higher elevations. Brook trout fishing is about as good as it gets now for those willing to walk. Even fishing roadside is good for now and will continue that way as long as we keep getting rain.

The Caney Fork River continues to fish anywhere from average to good on high water streamer floats. Anyone who wants to target trout with streamers will find this to be exciting fishing. Low water is becoming more and more likely, and if that trend continues we will see some great low water floats. The fish are hungry and we are going into some of the best fishing months on this fine tailwater. Midge hatches have been incredible on low or falling water and the fish are feeding. We have the right flies to catch the fish so book a guided trip now!

Cumberland Plateau smallmouth streams are rounding into fine shape now. Rain will bump flows up again, but in between the fish are hungry and willing to hammer a fly!

Headed East

Tomorrow morning I am headed east.  Along the way, I hope to see friends and family.  Over the next month or so I will even sneak in some fishing including back home in Tennessee.  With luck I'll get to chase smallmouth and trout and maybe even some musky.  I'll be checking in as much as possible and hopefully going to update with some reports that I know I've been slow to add.  Please be patient as I'm planning on enjoying this summer to the fullest.  Accordingly I may not spend as much time blogging as I otherwise might.  When I return to Colorado in July I'll be camping and backpacking and yes, doing a little fishing as well.  Hopefully I'll find some time to rest as well.  August and a return to school will be here before I know it...

    1. Thanks Bill! I'm hoping to hit the Caney while I'm here in addition to fishing in the Smokies. Should be a good time!
