UPDATE: 7/2/2015 -- Rain continues to fall over the Park. Streams were anywhere from stained to high and muddy today. The terrestrial bite was decent and I nailed two 12" rainbows, one on a hopper and one on a Green Weenie. Streamers resulted in some nice follows and eats, but somehow I never connected. High water this time of year should trigger a feeding binge. Get out there and fish!
The Caney Fork is fishing very well this year. Flows are going to be up for at least a week or so with all the rain we are getting and maybe a lot more. It should settle down by mid to late July though and the fishing will be excellent. Contact me about a float trip if you want to get in on this great fishing at TroutZoneAnglers@gmail.com or call/text (931) 261-1884.
Cumberland Plateau smallmouth fishing is definitely getting cranked up. The topwater bite is ON now so get out and chase those blue lines for smallies and panfish!

Please take a moment to weigh in on our newest poll. How many of you use fluorocarbon tippet? I started using it consistently this year. The cost is definitely a bit steep but worth it if you can afford it. I've been using Rio Fluoroflex Plus and am sold on the stuff. Seaguar Grand Max is awesome also but even more costly than the Rio. If you haven't tried fluorocarbon tippet yet I would urge you to give it a shot, especially on the tailwaters. I think you'll be glad you did...
