A new page has been added to Trout Zone Anglers. This one is a page of useful links. Right now, I have provided links to several articles I wrote a few years ago for the Little River Journal. Depending on your mood, you can brush up on your skills, read fishing tails, or perhaps get inspired to journey further afield in your search for that untouched gem of a trout stream. Just don't explore this page unless you have some time on your hands. You will get the most out of each story if you can take the time to enjoy the read.
Also, if you have a page that you think would be useful for my readers and clients and would like to have a link on the Trout Zone Anglers' page, please contact me and let me know why I should include your page.
UPDATE:8/23/2015 -- The Smokies continue to fish well. Bugs are fairly plentiful with little yellow stoneflies, big golden stoneflies, a few caddis, and even some mayflies making appearances. 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. This week will see Little River come back into play with cool overnight temperatures forecast. Last week, I fished Little River one evening and had my best dry fly fishing of the year. I know that sounds incredible. It was and you should have been there!
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. On low water, terrestrials, nymphs, and midges should keep things interesting. 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!
