FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 05/8/2018

Peak spring fishing is here! Lots of bugs are hatching in the Smokies, smallmouth bass are heating up, and the Caney is starting to offer some fishable windows especially on weekends. This is looking like a good summer for fishing here in middle and east Tennessee. Spring was unseasonably cool which should make for some excellent summer fishing on the tailwaters in particular.

Evening on the River

My favorite time of day to be on the water is evening.  That may have more than a little to do with the fact that I don't like getting up early.  When fishing is on the schedule, I have been known to get up early to find the big ones, but I would much rather stay out late instead if given the option.  Evening on the river is a magical time.  The crowds have usually left although in terms of quality fishing that's always a mystery to me.  In fact, I've noticed that most fishermen seem to leave the river around supper time.  Perhaps there is a correlation there.  Regardless, it is those magical moments in the last light of the day that keep me coming back.

  1. Have to agree with you about a couple of things. First of all, I don't necessarily like getting up real early anymore! Used to do that all the time. Evening is a special time to take it all in and reflect on the day and the treasures you have. Always good to the last cast!

    1. Mel, that last cast is always bittersweet. I love evening but sometimes I wish it would last a little longer...

  2. I don't like getting up early and I don't like staying up late. I may have to adjust my schedule for you.

    1. Howard, middle of the day fishing is always good too, especially this time of year when things are cold the rest of the time...

    The only time I get up early is to fish, otherwise I am sleeping until 8 am. 40 years of getting up at 5 am to go to work, got to me so now I am making up for loss time.
