FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 5/22/2017

Fishing is good to excellent across the area. The Caney Fork River continues to shine on both high and low water. In the Smokies, strong hatches have been keeping fish looking up.

Yesterday, Blue-winged Olives hatched for hours during the light rain and drizzle. Fish were looking up but also took nymphs well. Streamers were moving some quality fish as well. The summer hatches are well under way now. Expect Golden and Little Yellow stoneflies and Isonychia (Slate Drake) mayflies. Light Cahills and Sulfurs have been around as well.

The Caney Fork River continues to fish anywhere from good to great 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.

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! Musky floats are about over for the year unless we get more rain.

Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there! I want to especially say happy Father's Day to my dad who got me started in fishing.  I'll always remember that first fishing trip. I was 4 or 5, it all kinda blends together, and my dad and grandpa took me to the local state park.  Three monster (at least to a little kid) bluegill later, I was hooked.  Over the years, my dad took me fishing.  He didn't fish much himself, but was my ride and took me fishing for some good father/son time.  Here's a picture from our Raven Fork trip a couple of years ago as well as a couple from a hike up Little River that we did together last year. Thanks for being a great dad!!!
