Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 01/17/2019

Colder weather lately has slowed things down a touch in the Smokies. Thankfully, however, the streams haven't really dropped below 40 degrees so there are always some fish to be found. With a big rain event forecast for this weekend followed by sharply colder temperatures, get out and fish sooner rather than later. Nymphs or streamers are the name of the game this time of year.

On the tailwaters, we are dealing with massive amounts of water That said, while lots of rain this weekend may set us further back, there is a glimmer of hope on the horizon. The overall trend over the next 1-3 months is for drier conditions which should allow flows to stabilize and at least allow us to get some float trips in.

Musky fishing has been decent as of late. Flows are generally just about perfect on our favorite musky rivers. With cold weather ahead, this is something we'll probably be doing more of...

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.
