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!

Still Some Left
After the recent arctic outbreak here in Colorado, I'm sure that most people don't want to be reminded of how good they could have it. You know, those nice fall days where the colors are peaking but the daytime temperatures are still reasonable...? Or maybe you will think of spring with its increasing BWO hatches and hungry trout. Anyway, whatever it is, I discovered I still have some fall pictures left, quite a lot of them actually. So here are a few more of my favorites from back in October.
