I've caught many nice browns over the years. March and April have been particularly kind to me when it comes to catching big browns in the Smokies. Here is one really nice brown from Little River from March a couple of years ago.
The best part about this fish? I didn't actually catch it. Well, not exactly anyway. For those that have not read the story, go back a couple of years in time and check out this old blog post. It is one of the crazier fishing stories I've ever been a participant in.
UPDATE: 7/27/2015 -- Fishing is good across the Park. Had a good guide trip yesterday with fish showing a preference for terrestrials (big surprise there right?!?). Afterwards I met up with my good friend Joe and fished for brookies before heading down to finish the day on Little River. Everywhere I went the fishing was solid. Beetle fishing was very good on Little River in one particular section. Get out and locate those spots!
The Caney Fork is fishing very well this year. Flows are starting to cooperate again for floats or wade trips. 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 great when the water levels cooperate. The terrestrial fishing was good last week and with the recent high water, the fish haven't been pestered as much! I'm hoping to sneak out tomorrow for a few hours to see how the fish are doing.
