Guided Trips

UPDATE: 4/21/2016 Smokies Fly Fishing Report -- Current Hatches: Blue-winged Olives, Little Black Caddis, Little Black Stoneflies, Hendricksons, March Browns, Sulfurs, Light Cahills, Pale Evening Duns, Little Yellow Stoneflies. Fishing is excellent right now in the Smokies. Hatches are quite diverse depending on which streams you are fishing. 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 right now, and will continue to just get better. May through June will feature some of the easiest and arguably best fishing available on this river so 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 fishing is getting going now with some nice fish caught earlier this week on a "Guides' Day Off" Float. Wade fishing for smallmouth will only get better from here on out.

Bronzebacks

Most off days lately have resulted in some great exploration.  The Cumberland Plateau area is blessed with more great water than one could reasonably expect to fish in a lifetime although that isn't keeping me from trying.  The local smallmouth are eager to hit surface bugs which is probably part of the draw.

Here are a couple from last week.



The stream has a fairly decent flow for this time of year although we could still use a little rain.  One of the things I'm noticing more and more as I look for good shots with the camera is that fall is on its way.  Yes, I know some of you don't want to hear about that yet.  Seriously though, there are colorful leaves everywhere I look.  Fall is coming soon!

  1. David, a couple of aggressive Smallies on the surface would make my day. I wish that Colorado had more moving water for Smallmouth. Thanks for sharing.
