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.

Back Up and Running

Well, the Ice Storm of 2015 is mostly behind us now. There are still a lot of trees and limbs to clean up but we have electricity again which means I should be posting some again. For those who wondered where I went, we lost power for approximately 200 hours beginning over a week ago on Friday night. The area immediately to our west and northwest seems to have the worst damage, at least from what I have seen. There are areas that look like a significant tornado came through. Anyway, I am thankful that nothing fell on our house or vehicles and everything is slowly heading back to normal now. I'll post some pictures and hopefully a fishing update soon. In the meantime, check out this page from the National Weather Service in Nashville on the recent winter weather here in Tennessee. There are some good pictures there as well as a lot of info about what transpired.

  5. Even in Tennessee, having a generator is not a bad idea.
