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....
UPDATE: 6/27/2015 -- A little rain and much cooler temperatures are just the shot in the arm we've been looking for. Smoky Mountain streams are going to fish well this week despite water that is still lower than ideal. Cooler temperatures will bring some lower elevation streams back into play for at least a few days. More rain is forecast this week so keep your fingers crossed!
The Caney Fork is fishing very well this year. Flows are improving and floats are generally producing good numbers of fish with a few quality fish mixed in. 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 definitely getting cranked up. The topwater bite is ON now so get out and chase those blue lines for smallies and panfish!
