Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 06/07/2019

Fishing is good to excellent just about everywhere now. In the Smokies, water has been getting a little on the low side, but rainfall over the next few days should help that situation. The recent dry spell has been great for the tailwaters. Big fish are being caught and flows are perfect for both wading and floating!

On the Clinch River, sulfurs are still hatching and fish are responding when bugs are on the water. Otherwise, midges will keep the fish fed.

The Caney Fork has settled into a very good schedule. As of right now, the Corps of Engineers is giving us some excellent schedules to keep just enough water in the river. Hopefully this will continue as we go through the hot summer months. We are also hoping that we don't get too much rain this weekend. Lots of rain will mess this river up sooner rather than later.

Warm water streams are fishing very well now. Lots of smallmouth bass are being caught and mostly on topwater. If you have been wanting to chase these fish, now is the time to go!

Weekend Fishing Prospects

Another weekend is upon us and I'm sure there are plenty of people everywhere looking to get out and fish a bit.  The football playoffs will help limit crowds although the weather will also play a part to accomplish the same goal.  The best temperatures we expect over the next week look to happen on Monday.  With long term forecasts suggesting that highs after Monday will struggle to get above freezing, this weekend will be your best opportunity to get out and catch some trout.

In the Smokies, expect the cold weather to keep things tough but not impossible.  The larger browns and rainbows will still be looking to eat.  Most days will produce the best fishing after the sun has had a chance to nudge the water temperatures even a degree or two.  The actual temperature is not as important as the temperature's general direction.  The big browns will probably be willing to chase if you feel like tossing streamers.  Use heavy tippet and hold on.  These days will feature long hours and your reward may only be one fish.  When that fish has the chance to be over twenty inches it makes it all worth your time.

I'm hoping to be out fishing on Sunday chasing either trout or maybe even musky.  Hopefully there will be a report and pictures to follow soon!
