Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 02/25/2018

Things have changed a lot since the last report. Unseasonably warm weather has kicked off the first hatches of the year in the Great Smoky Mountains while an extremely wet February means all of the tailwaters are blown out across middle and east Tennessee.

If you want to fish in the Smokies, nymphs and streamers will be your best bet unless you encounter a hatch. In that case, Blue Quills and Quill Gordons should be in your arsenal as well as Blue-winged Olives.

For now, just forget about the tailwaters in the short term. continued rain means it will be at least another month before the tailwaters are fishable again. With luck, we can start thinking about some streamer float trips on the Caney Fork in mid to late March, although that may be optimistic. In the meantime, head for the mountains and enjoy chasing the wild trout there.

Breaking News!!!

More as things continue to develop, but big things are looming on the immediate horizon.  I'll have a lot more on this either tomorrow or Friday, but I'll give a pretty good clue: I have an appointment first thing in the morning to get a hitch installed on my car, the Moose Magnet. Just to clarify, I am not getting a trailer to haul all those moose around in.

  2. Sure, keep us hanging. One would have to guess and this is just a guess, is that you've acquired a drift boat.
