Guided Trips

UPDATE: 3/13/2015 -- Quill Gordon and Blue Quill mayflies were hatching well on high water in the Smokies today. With the high flows, there were not many fish rising though. This next week is going to be awesome with good weather forecast and dropping water levels.

Lynn Camp Prong opens to fishing adding 8.5 miles of brook trout water in the Smokies!

Plenty of Water

The trout must be happy lately, and if not, I'm sure they will be all next summer.  That's because it has rained, and rained, and then rained some more.  All this cold water will translate into plenty of cool water for the tailwaters in another 6-8 months or at least we hope.  Of course there are a lot of factors that come into play but right now things are looking good.  Unfortunately the fishing will continue to be difficult on the tailwaters for the next couple of weeks at least and probably longer for the wade fisherman.

I spent a few days at Fall Creek Falls this week and was able to enjoy the highest falls east of the Mississippi (coming in at a little over 250 feet) under much higher flows than usual.  The spitting rain and fog made things difficult with the camera meaning I didn't shoot for very long.  A few shots are always better than none however and I was reasonably happy with the result.
