Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 01/17/2019

Colder weather lately has slowed things down a touch in the Smokies. Thankfully, however, the streams haven't really dropped below 40 degrees so there are always some fish to be found. With a big rain event forecast for this weekend followed by sharply colder temperatures, get out and fish sooner rather than later. Nymphs or streamers are the name of the game this time of year.

On the tailwaters, we are dealing with massive amounts of water That said, while lots of rain this weekend may set us further back, there is a glimmer of hope on the horizon. The overall trend over the next 1-3 months is for drier conditions which should allow flows to stabilize and at least allow us to get some float trips in.

Musky fishing has been decent as of late. Flows are generally just about perfect on our favorite musky rivers. With cold weather ahead, this is something we'll probably be doing more of...

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.
