UPDATE: 4/30/2015 -- Bugs, bugs bugs! Light colors are now here in force. Today, when the hatch started, the fish were on sulfurs and ate those for a while. Then the blue-winged olives started and the fish made the switch. When we changed patterns we were back in business. Later, the fish switched again to Pale Evening Duns. These big yellow mayflies really get the attention of the trout and anglers should pay close attention to see what the fish are taking. By careful observation and willingness to change patterns, you can keep catching fish all day.
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.

Great Article on Winter Fishing
I just enjoyed an excellent article on one of my favorite subjects, winter fly fishing. The Hopper Juan is one of the blogs I frequent the most and always has great information. Check out the story and get inspired to head out in the cold months ahead. Most people don't realize that with the proper flies and techniques, the fish will still respond well even in very cold water. Those fish still have to eat!!!
