Guided Trips

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.

Just a reminder for those of you who use Twitter.  You can now find me on Twitter @drknapp83.  Of course, you can often find new pictures and updates through both Twitter and Facebook as well.  Check them both out!

In the meantime, I'm off for the mountains for a few days.  I'll check back in late Thursday or Friday before I head out again.  NOW is the time to be out there!  I still have some limited availability for next week (October 26-31) and some prime days in the first two weeks of November.  Now is the time to get out and fish.  The trout are feeding like they are about to run out of food which is sort of what is about to happen.  Winter is a lean time in the mountains so get out now while the food is available and the fish are happy and fat.  I've seen more big rainbows caught in the last month than during the whole rest of the year.  Large browns will be turning up now as well so don't delay your trip!

If you are interested in a trip next week, send me an email and make sure to include a phone number or better yet call and leave me a voice message.

Finally, if you have not heard about Fly Tyers Weekend yet, start planning now to be there.  It is going to be an incredible gathering of talent.  Even if you don't tie this is a don't miss.  I still have some openings in the days leading up to the weekend so contact me ASAP if you need a guided trip.
