Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 01/17/2019

Colder weather lately has slowed things down a touch in the Smokies. Thankfully, however, the streams haven't really dropped below 40 degrees so there are always some fish to be found. With a big rain event forecast for this weekend followed by sharply colder temperatures, get out and fish sooner rather than later. Nymphs or streamers are the name of the game this time of year.

On the tailwaters, we are dealing with massive amounts of water That said, while lots of rain this weekend may set us further back, there is a glimmer of hope on the horizon. The overall trend over the next 1-3 months is for drier conditions which should allow flows to stabilize and at least allow us to get some float trips in.

Musky fishing has been decent as of late. Flows are generally just about perfect on our favorite musky rivers. With cold weather ahead, this is something we'll probably be doing more of...

Winner

The winner from A Clue is Tennswede.  If you will send me an email I will send you some flies in another couple of days!  The picture was taken on Upper Little River, specifically just below campsite #24.

Stay tuned for more chances to win flies! I've been in tying mode as I prepare to assault the Colorado trout streams starting in a few days. It just so happens that I've tied extra of some of my favorite patterns so I'll have more giveaways and contests over the next couple of months.  A glorious month of fishing is ahead before I have to get serious about work again.  Of course, I'll be starting to work on planning for classes but mostly I'll be free to relax for another month.   What a tough life...

    Congrats to the winner, I was making a wild guess as to where you were fishing. Your Seal Leech produced for me Saturday in the Derby when nothing else would, I am so impressed with that pattern. Thanks for tying it for me
