Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 09/14/2018

Heavy rains are returning to the mountains of east Tennessee with the remnants of Hurricane Florence. Hopefully we get just enough and not too much water!

Wet years normally produce some fantastic fishing in the Smokies and this year has been no different. No matter where we fish, it seems that the fishing is amazing this year. We have seen some nice brown trout, big rainbows, and lots of good sized brook trout.

Fall fishing is looking awesome this year. The Smokies in particular will shine. Currently we are still seeing good numbers of Golden Stoneflies and Isonychias. Soon we should start seeing more of the fall Blue-winged Olives and fall caddis. Terrestrials are still going strong as well so remember your box of ants, inchworms, beetles, and other goodies.

The Caney Fork has picked up slightly from some very slow fishing earlier this summer. As we go into fall, the fishing will be decent although not great. I recommend getting on the guide calendar for a trip next spring in May as that month should be killer. Of course, the winter shad kill will be awesome as well.

Last Call

I've been looking to sell my boat for a couple of weeks now.  Having found a good deal on a nice upgrade that will be better for guiding, I have been contemplating selling my current drift boat but time is now short.  The other boat I've been looking at will be sold to someone else unless I sell this boat within the next few days.  If you've been wanting a boat to get down the local tailwaters this winter, look no further.  Here is a link to the Craigslist ad for more information.  Email me through that ad or via my contact information on here.  Get it before it is either gone or pulled off of the market.

  2. David, are you contemplating another DB or a raft setup?

    1. Walter, I was looking at another drift boat. I think the guy has probably sold it now so I'll have to keep looking. There are some local rivers here where a raft would be pretty awesome so I'm keeping my options and mind open right now.
