UPDATE: 7/27/2015 -- Fishing is good across the Park. Had a good guide trip yesterday with fish showing a preference for terrestrials (big surprise there right?!?). Afterwards I met up with my good friend Joe and fished for brookies before heading down to finish the day on Little River. Everywhere I went the fishing was solid. Beetle fishing was very good on Little River in one particular section. Get out and locate those spots!
The Caney Fork is fishing very well this year. Flows are starting to cooperate again for floats or wade trips. 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 great when the water levels cooperate. The terrestrial fishing was good last week and with the recent high water, the fish haven't been pestered as much! I'm hoping to sneak out tomorrow for a few hours to see how the fish are doing.

Here on the Cumberland Plateau of Tennessee, winter has arrived in a big way. Recent high temperatures have not been above freezing and overnight lows are getting close to the single digits. The first snowfall completed the appearance of winter with light snow showers stretching out over a couple of days. Waterfalls near my house have been forming large areas of ice around the base and as well as icicles off the rocks nearby. The Sandhill Cranes have mostly migrated south of the area but scattered flocks continue to fly over, hurrying towards the warmth and abundance of the southeastern U.S. The large fields nearby now have wintering raptors hunting their broad expanses. I have identified the majority as being Northern Harrier Hawks which usually appear around Thanksgiving and will be here until early spring.
