FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 05/8/2018

Peak spring fishing is here! Lots of bugs are hatching in the Smokies, smallmouth bass are heating up, and the Caney is starting to offer some fishable windows especially on weekends. This is looking like a good summer for fishing here in middle and east Tennessee. Spring was unseasonably cool which should make for some excellent summer fishing on the tailwaters in particular.

Icy Cold

Here on the Cumberland Plateau, we don't get as much winter as I experienced when I lived in Colorado, and I'll admit that I miss it sometimes. Recently, we did get the cold portion of winter, but unfortunately the best we could do for snow was a very light dusting. The cold temperatures did produce some beautiful ice formations however. Here are some pictures from my favorite quick woods getaway near home. Before looking at all of them, you may want to compare the scenes with my recent trip that didn't include ice...

  1. Lots of ice. But you still have some wonderful open water.

    1. Yes, we are definitely fortunate that things really never completely freeze up around here!

    1. Howard, you can send some of that snow my way. After a promising start to our winter, I'm starting to think it will be a year that is light on the snow side of things. I guess I'll just have to come back to Colorado to enjoy a real winter.

  3. Icy for sure, but, I really like the looks of some of that open water, too. I would be swimming something down on the bottom of some that water.
