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.

Sunday Closeup

This week is shaping up to be just about perfect. I'll be taking some time to spend with friends and also fish for myself. I don't get that luxury as often now that I'm guiding. Today I kicked things off with my first local smallmouth trip of 2015. The trip was incredible in so many ways. Until I digest it a bit further and actually take the time to write about it, here is a closeup of one from today that is my best fish to date from this creek.
