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!

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.
