Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 6/19/2017

Fishing is good to excellent across the area. The Caney Fork River continues to shine on both high and low water. In the Smokies, frequent rainfall have kept water in the streams so the fish are healthy and ready to eat!

Terrestrials are really coming on strong now. Ants and inchworms continue to get it done, and beetle fishing should be rapidly improving over the next two weeks. Isonychia mayfly nymphs are providing good fishing subsurface along with Golden and Little Yellow Stonefly nymphs. There is still a good variety of mayflies hatching in the higher elevations. Brook trout fishing is about as good as it gets now for those willing to walk. Even fishing roadside is good for now and will continue that way as long as we keep getting rain.

The Caney Fork River continues to fish anywhere from average to good 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. Midge hatches have been incredible on low or falling water and the fish are feeding. We have the right flies to catch the fish so book a guided trip now!

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!

Merry Christmas!!!

Merry Christmas and thank you for being a part of making 2014 great! I appreciate everyone who stops by here at the Trout Zone and reads as well as those who leave comments.  Also much thanks to all the great people who fished with me this year.  I have enjoyed guiding as much and even more than I thought I would and look forward to a fantastic 2015.  Thanks for stopping by!

I would specifically like to thank a few people who have supported me in various ways from offering advice, mentoring, and helping me get my business started, to referring customers my way and getting out word about Trout Zone Anglers.  Specifically, I would like to thank my friends David Perry of Southeastern Fly, Josh Pheiffer of Frontier Anglers, and Captain Michael "Rocky" Cox of Rocky Top Anglers.  Also I would like to thank Daniel Drake and Byron Begley of Little River Outfitters for supporting me in this new venture, being there when I needed advice, and helping get out the word about my new business.  Thank you all and Merry Christmas!
