Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 8/13/2017

Fishing is good to excellent across the area. Caney Fork floats are happening either early or late, and in the Smokies we are fishing the high elevations to beat the heat.

Terrestrials are now a strong producer no matter where you fish. Beetle fishing has been good this summer. There are still fish ready to slam a beetle or hopper. In the mountains I prefer a beetle or ant while on the tailwaters I lean towards a hopper or beetle although ants work well there also. Hike in fishing on the brook trout streams is still good right now although flows are low enough that you need to focus on stealth.

On the Caney Fork, the great sight fishing opportunities of summer are in full gear. Daily midge fishing to big trout is a possibility. Night times can produce some exciting fishing on streamers or even mouse patterns. Just be careful out there when its dark. The river is unforgiving even in the daylight.

Smallmouth bass fishing has been good to great. Fish are looking up as usual for this time of year. When they don't want to hit flies on top, crawdad or baitfish patterns will work.

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
