Guided Trips

UPDATE: 5/1/2016 Smokies Fly Fishing Report -- Current Hatches: Blue-winged Olives, Little Black Caddis, Brown stoneflies, Hendricksons, March Browns, Sulfurs, Light Cahills, Pale Evening Duns, Little Yellow Stoneflies, Tan Caddis, inch worms, and ants. Fishing is very good now in the Smokies. Hatches are quite diverse depending on which streams you are fishing and what elevation you are at. It is still early spring up on the high brook trout streams but almost summer down low. Both dry flies and nymphs are catching a lot of fish now. If you need to learn how to fish these streams, a guided trip with me can help you accomplish that!

Caney Fork Fly Fishing Report: The Caney Fork is fishing well now. Flows are great for both float or wade trips. Contact me about a float or wade trip if you want to enjoy this fishing at TroutZoneAnglers@gmail.com or call/text (931) 261-1884.

Clinch River Fishing Report: Fishing is anywhere from good to slow depending on the day and your casting ability. Long casts, long drifts, small flies. Sulfurs are starting now and the fish are noticing. When there aren't a lot of bugs on the water, stick with small nymphs and midge patterns and you should catch some nice trout.

Cumberland Plateau Fishing Report: Flows are good and water temperatures are warming. Smallmouth are coming on strong now and wade fishing the creeks and streams for smallmouth and various sunfish will only get better from here on out.

March is the Month

I've caught many nice browns over the years.  March and April have been particularly kind to me when it comes to catching big browns in the Smokies.  Here is one really nice brown from Little River from March a couple of years ago.


The best part about this fish?  I didn't actually catch it.  Well, not exactly anyway.  For those that have not read the story, go back a couple of years in time and check out this old blog post.   It is one of the crazier fishing stories I've ever been a participant in.

  1. Cool story, David. The link sent me to the wrong archived blog post... but I figured it out. ;)
    I had an experience last summer hooking a 4" Green Sunfish on a popper and having a 5 lb bass come out of nowhere to try and eat it. It was fun playing that hawg for a few seconds until he realized his meal was putting up too much of a fight and spit it out.

    1. Thanks for the heads up on the link Jay! Hope I've got it fixed. That would be pretty cool to see with bass. I've watched bass busting bait and can only imagine what it would be like if that "bait" was on the end of my line...
