Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 03/11/2019

Cold weather has given way to early spring. Daffodils are blooming and bugs are hatching. Look for Quill Gordon and Blue Quill emergences in the Smokies along with Little Black Caddis, Little Black Stoneflies, and Early Brown Stoneflies. Blue-winged Olives will be hatching, especially on foul weather days.

Other area waters are high from recent rains. The Clinch River is probably at least a month out from being fishable. The Caney Fork is probably more like two months at best. Stay home, tie flies, or head for the mountains.

Warm water options will turn on if we can get some days without rain. Stillwater options are already producing some bass and bream. River smallmouth bass should be good once flows drop and waters warm.

Strange Happenings or Cataloochee: Part 2

On most of my camping trips I like to document the camp a little with my camera.  Sometimes I just snap a few shots of the overall setup and other times I go to great lengths to get shots of everything that makes up camp life.  Fire shots in particular seem to get me snapping more pictures than I intend.  Fire is just so mesmerizing that I'll often shoot 50 or more pictures before I think, "Oh man I can't fill up my memory card with fire pictures!"

Last month in Cataloochee, I found myself taking the obligatory camp shots but not really dealing with the fire thing on the first evening.  My cousin would not show up until the next day and a campfire is generally best when it is shared with someone else.  My fishing plans for the next day included a stream I had never fished but wanted to give a fair shot so I did a quick supper before hurrying to bed.

While I was still thinking about supper, I got the camera out and, as light was quickly dwindling, quickly got a few shots that included my tent and the overall setup.  It wasn't until I got home and looked at the pictures on the computer that I realized that something was a little off.  The first one seemed fine, but then something strange appeared in the next couple of images...
