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...

Fire Tiger PB&J

Think this might move some big predatory browns?  Try the PB&J in fire tiger colors and let me know if it works...

  1. Happen to have a recipe for this little gem? I'd like to give it a shot at the "secret" lake once the snows gone, that is.

  3. I tied a similar streamer using saddle hackle. I thought it would make a great brookie pattern. Don't know if I ever fished it.

    Yours should work on brookies and rainbows.

  4. David, I am with Mark on this one. A recipe or a sample would be an ideal gift for a BlogBuddy!

  5. I tied one very similar to this. Fantastic movement in the water and fish could not resist it.

  6. Sorry for the delay guys, but here's a link to an earlier post I did on the PB&J streamer. The main difference between the standard PB&J and the one above is the color on the rabbit strip. http://thetroutzone.blogspot.com/2013/03/the-pb.html
