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!

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
