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!

Another epic visit to the Florida Everglades is now history. The trip was a lot of fun for many reasons including the paddling, lots of wildlife, and yes, even a little fishing. Things like camping on the beach were definitely a huge plus as well. I have well over 10 gigabytes of just my own pictures and video to go over, not to mention similar quantities from my friends as well. Over the next few days I'll be posting pictures, stories, and other tidbits from the trip.
In the meantime, spring appears to be in full swing here in Tennessee. That means I have lots of tying and fishing to do. Today I'm heading out for a little while to check on a local bluegill spot. Check back often over the next serveral days as I provide lots of updates...
