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.

Nature's Canvass

This year, fall has been a bit of an anomaly.  Rumors suggest that the late season rain has prevented the best colors from showing themselves.  Regardless, I have still found some amazing fall colors around the state.  Here is a stand of Aspen as viewed from I-70 near Frisco.


While driving past some of the states best trout water, I had a hard time not drooling all over the steering wheel.  However, with friends and family along for the drive, I mostly stayed focused on the scenery and camaraderie and not on fishing.  The Roaring Fork beckoned as did the Gunnison and Taylor and Frying Pan.  I'll be back, hopefully soon, to at least some of these great streams.  Early snows are already flying up high.  It will not be too long before we are in a tailwater phase.  Until then, I'll enjoy the colors, and maybe get away to chase some fall trout.
