UPDATE: 7/2/2015 -- Rain continues to fall over the Park. Streams were anywhere from stained to high and muddy today. The terrestrial bite was decent and I nailed two 12" rainbows, one on a hopper and one on a Green Weenie. Streamers resulted in some nice follows and eats, but somehow I never connected. High water this time of year should trigger a feeding binge. Get out there and fish!
The Caney Fork is fishing very well this year. Flows are going to be up for at least a week or so with all the rain we are getting and maybe a lot more. It should settle down by mid to late July though and the fishing will be excellent. 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 definitely getting cranked up. The topwater bite is ON now so get out and chase those blue lines for smallies and panfish!

My trip home is nearing completion, but I can already declare it a success. The Smokies were visited, and I even caught some fish despite high, cold water. The last fish of the trip, the big one, escaped with minimal evidence beyond a couple of eye witnesses, so the makings of a great fish story are in place. Lots more on this trip will be coming in the next few days. In the meantime, I need to enjoy the last day here in Tennessee...
