Guided Trips

UPDATE: 5/14/2015 -- Streams in the Smokies are getting lower with the recent lack of rainfall. Dry/dropper rigs are accounting for a lot of fish, especially on the dropper. Yesterday was a great day with lots of rainbows and brookies and even a few browns. Fish were taking both flies but showed a preference for my favorite caddis pupa dropper.

The Caney Fork continues to fish well. On a half day trip this past Tuesday, a brand new angler had a 40 fish day with some nice sized holdovers in the mix including a few browns. 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. With the holiday weekend and summer coming up, expect the fishing pressure to steadily increase on this river so get out and enjoy it while you can.

Smallmouth are turning on as well now. Last Sunday, I landed my personal best smallmouth on one of my favorite local creeks. This fishing will only improve. Isonychias are hatching on the smallie streams here on the Plateau and Golden Stoneflies should be just around the corner. Over the next few weeks, the streams will transition to great surface terrestrial and popper fishing.

March is the Month

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.

  1. Cool story, David. The link sent me to the wrong archived blog post... but I figured it out. ;)
    I had an experience last summer hooking a 4" Green Sunfish on a popper and having a 5 lb bass come out of nowhere to try and eat it. It was fun playing that hawg for a few seconds until he realized his meal was putting up too much of a fight and spit it out.

    1. Thanks for the heads up on the link Jay! Hope I've got it fixed. That would be pretty cool to see with bass. I've watched bass busting bait and can only imagine what it would be like if that "bait" was on the end of my line...
