Guided Trips

UPDATE:9/1/2015 -- The Smokies continue to fish well. The fish are obviously eating well but still seem to always be hungry. Now is the time to fish the higher elevation waters and enjoy rainbow and brook trout. The water is getting low so steeper drainages with pocket water should fish best. If you must fish the larger streams, do so early and late.

The Caney Fork is fishing well this year. The streamer bite has been good on some high water days but on other days the fish seem to be stuffed full already despite plenty of forage around. This past Sunday featured great fishing on low water. I had to change flies to get the colors and sizes right on the midges, but once I did, it was game ON with lots of fish to hand. 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 good when the water levels cooperate. The terrestrial fishing continues to be excellent. There is very little reason to throw anything other than topwater right now. Ever caught a Coosa bass? That is a possibility right now as well!

North Carolina Gold

While out walking a stream this weekend, I came across a slab of gold in a nice run.  The fish was actively feeding, but I ended up spooking it without a hookup.  Yesterday was a different story.  The fish fell for a caddis pupa...

    Hey David, That's a beautiful brown, and I'm pretty sure that's the one you told me about in the campground Sunday. I did look for the Browns but couldn't find them. I did hook about a dozen Rainbows and landed 9 I believe later in the day. It was very nice to meet you and maybe we can meet and fish over on the River sometime that I'm headed over there.
    Best Regards,

    Rick(NC Flydancer)

  5. Thanks guys! I was pretty happy about catching that fish, mostly because of the persistance required.

    Rick, it was nice meeting you at Smokemont. Give me a holler if you're headed this way and let's fish...
