Guided Trips

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!

Stonefly Shucks

It may just be me, but it seems like the Golden stones were a little late this year.  I was seeing shucks here and there in June but it wasn't until the last 2-3 weeks that good numbers have appeared on stream side rocks up in the Smokies.  In case you were wondering, the fish do seem to recognize them, I'm just not saying in what form.  Go find out for yourself....

  2. I never paid much attention until last year when fishing Boulder Creek and found stonefly shucks all over the place. It was slightly eerie but the fishing sure was good.

    1. I never thought of it that way, but now that you mention it, all those shucks do add a strange effect to the scenery stream side...
