Winter has blown in with a convincing dusting of snow and frigid winds. This morning I woke up to a beautiful dusting of wet snow that stuck to all the trees. The ground itself was largely too warm still for anything to stick to it resulting in a beautiful sight: lush green grass still carpets my yard while the trees wear a frosty coating.
UPDATE: 4/18/2015 -- With the recent damp weather, stream levels are elevated but fishing can still be good if you pick your stream carefully. This past week we have seen March Browns showing up and of course the Hendricksons are around. During cloudy or rainy days, Blue-winged Olives may also make an appearance. Little Yellow Stoneflies and Little Black Caddis are also around.
Warm water options are heating up and I'm offering 1/2 day trips in the Cookeville/Crossville area for anyone wanting to target bass, bluegill and shellcracker and trout all in one trip. This will only last a short time as the water will soon warm too much for the trout so get on this trip option in the next couple of weeks.
