Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 01/01/2017

Happy New Years!!! Fishing is going to be tough for a few days. The cold snap has everything icing over except for the tailwaters. If you must fish, stay safe and be prepared for the possibility of getting wet. The streams of the Smokies are almost pointless to fish right now. That said, the forecast suggests there may be some opportunity to fish in the mountains and find a little success starting next Sunday. Temperatures above freezing are what we are looking for here. Not good odds, mind you, but certainly better than being in the deep freeze.

Tailwaters are a bit more reliable through the winter months. Streamer action should be anywhere from average to good depending on the day. On low water on rivers such as the Clinch, throw midges and you should find some fish. The Caney is still quite a ways away from seeing low water so it will be a streamer game almost exclusively.

Ready To Go

After tying a few flies, I'm all ready to go in the morning. I've only got a couple of trips in so far this year but ready to start hitting it a lot harder now. I'll be floating somewhere looking for some big trout and hopefully a shad kill. Check back in the next day or so as well as on Twitter and Facebook for updates to see if we had a successful trip!

    Just cross over the Duck and Elk I/65 today on our way to our daughters in Springhill and both were really clear.
