FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 8/13/2017

Fishing is good to excellent across the area. Caney Fork floats are happening either early or late, and in the Smokies we are fishing the high elevations to beat the heat.

Terrestrials are now a strong producer no matter where you fish. Beetle fishing has been good this summer. There are still fish ready to slam a beetle or hopper. In the mountains I prefer a beetle or ant while on the tailwaters I lean towards a hopper or beetle although ants work well there also. Hike in fishing on the brook trout streams is still good right now although flows are low enough that you need to focus on stealth.

On the Caney Fork, the great sight fishing opportunities of summer are in full gear. Daily midge fishing to big trout is a possibility. Night times can produce some exciting fishing on streamers or even mouse patterns. Just be careful out there when its dark. The river is unforgiving even in the daylight.

Smallmouth bass fishing has been good to great. Fish are looking up as usual for this time of year. When they don't want to hit flies on top, crawdad or baitfish patterns will work.

    For some reason your blog will not work for me using my Internet Explorer Browser, I can only see your blog from Firefox. Email me the link to use to let me know when you publish a new post. I can't find that link on your blog. Thanks Bill

    1. Bill, thanks for the heads up. I have checked and it seems to be working on Internet Explorer for me here so maybe it is something with your computer in particular? Hopefully if others are having problems they will let me know as well so I can check further on my end. Thank you again for letting me know!
