Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 1/6/2017
The fishing was good when the water temperature spiked into the low 50s to start the new year. Fish were taken on a variety of nymphs from big stonefly patterns to small nymphs and midges. Most fish were in classic winter time water. Think slow and deep this time of year. My best fish of 2017 came on New Years Day and it hit a large streamer while fishing Little River in the Smokies. Good way to start the year!

Now is the time to start thinking about spring fishing. The bookings are rolling in for float trips on the Caney Fork. Spring hatch trips in the Smokies will book quickly as well so contact me soon if you want to get out in 2017!

Stonefly Shucks

It may just be me, but it seems like the Golden stones were a little late this year.  I was seeing shucks here and there in June but it wasn't until the last 2-3 weeks that good numbers have appeared on stream side rocks up in the Smokies.  In case you were wondering, the fish do seem to recognize them, I'm just not saying in what form.  Go find out for yourself....

  2. I never paid much attention until last year when fishing Boulder Creek and found stonefly shucks all over the place. It was slightly eerie but the fishing sure was good.

    1. I never thought of it that way, but now that you mention it, all those shucks do add a strange effect to the scenery stream side...
