Tuckasegee River Fishing Report May 19th

The Tuckasegee River fishing is incredible this week! Ideal generation schedules from the East and West Fork have the Tuckasegee River fishing perfectly. The action has been fantastic through out the entire day. We are catching big Rainbow and Brown Trout, along with Smallmouth Bass this week. Hatches have been great each day with tons of Caddis and several species of Mayflies coming off steadily.

Tuckasegee River Fishing Report May 19th

Tuckasegee River Trout

Currently the Bryson City section of the Tuckasegee River is fishing the best. This section holds 34,000 trout per mile making it the highest trout count total per mile of any river in the US. The river here has the highest biomass and nutrient rich waters of any stretch of this 52 mile long tailwater. In fact biologists tell us this is the highest biodiversity and healthiest river in the state of North Carolina. Trout here feed heavily all day on the many hatches of aquatic insects and plethora of bait fish present in the river. There are 72 species of fish in the lower Tuckasegee River, of course not all of them are game fish. Many are baitfish which larger trout and bass feed upon. Trout are noticably fatter and harder fighting here than on other stretches of river.

Tuckasegee River Float Trips

Float Trips on the Tuckasegee River have been highly productive this week. Our guides are putting guests on good numbers of trout and Smallmouth bass on both fly rods and spin tackle. This time of year fish hold in many different waters types, and fishing from drift boats makes it easier to get to these areas. Fly Fishing the Smokies guides float 14 sections of the Tuckasegee and keep a constant finger on the pulse of this magnificent river and fishery.

There is just a few short weeks left of the Delayed Harvest season on the Tuckasegee River. Once the season is over however we still have great trout fishing and smallmouth bass fishing all summer long.

Great Smoky Mountains Fishing Report May 10th

Great Smoky Mountains Fishing Report May 10th, Fly Fishing Gatlinburg Pigeon Forge Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Great Smoky Mountains Fishing Report May 10th

Great Smoky Mountains Fishing Report May 10th

The fly fishing inside the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is reaching its peak. Mid May is always when experienced Smokies anglers feel the park streams are fishing at their best! Perfect weather and abundant insect hatches keep the trout happy and looking up. Some of the best dry fly action of the Spring is happening right this very minute!

Black Berry Winter

Blackberry Winter blew through the region this past weekend, bringing with it severe high winds which toppled tress and closed the park down for a few days. Park officials told us there was over 150 downed tress in the roadways inside the park. Thats impressive considering we have had the remnants of hurricanes and everything in between and that has never happened before to that magnitude. Just goes to show how raw and wild the Smoky Mountains can be at times. The winds subsided and snow blew across the high country dumping upwards of 6 inches of snow in places like Mt Leconte and Clingmans Dome. Crazy right? However, history shows, it has snowed each month of the year inside the park over the years. Roadways are now clear and everything is operating inside the park as usual.

This week has been excellent weather as day time temperatures have reached the high 70’s inside the park. In downtown Gatlinburg it feels almost Summer like with mid 80’s. Its certainly nice to be outside in the Smokies now. Bryson City also topped out at 80 today as well.

Smoky Mountains Fishing

Our favorite dry fly hatches of year have begun inside the park. Yellow Sallie stoneflies and light Cahills are flying through the air and crawling acros the rocks. These hatches drive the Smokies Trout absolutely crazy. Trout leap into the air wildly to take a struggling insect off the waters surface. Every guide on our staff looses their minds this time of year as we enjoy the bounties of warmer weather. Right now there is an abundance of great hatches all across he region. There is no less than 26 different hatches you should be aware of. However if you plan to fish this weekend, bring a handful of Yellow Sallie dries in #14-18, light Cahills in #14-16, and plenty of olive and tan Caddis dries in sizes #14-18.

The Weekend

This weekend looks to have some rain moving into the area and thunderstorms are possible. It is the Smokies however and you never know what your going to get weather wise. We have an old saying, well actually we have lots of sayings, that’s what mountain folk do, but anyhow. If you don’t like the weather, just wait fifteen minutes, It’s going to change! Highs on Friday will reach 77, rain on Saturday with a high of 66, and sunny on Sunday and back up to 76. Grab a rain jacket and get to the water, the trout are waiting!

 

Faith, Family, and Fishing!

Tuckasegee River Float Trips

Float Trips on the Tuckasegee River are the way to go for covering the most water and catching lots of fish! Currently there are 34,000 trout per mile on the lower section of the Tuckasegee River near Bryson City! Thats pretty incredible odds for the angler looking to get multiple shots of fish. Fly Fishing the Smokies guides run 14 different stretches of the Tuckasegee River. Anything from Trout to Smallmouth Bass and Walleye, we fish for it! Our boats are perfectly setup for fishing rocky and technical rivers such as the Tuckasegee River. Each year we guide 1000+ fly fishing float trips down the river. Our guides know the waters here like the back of their hands.

Tuckasegee River Wading

Wading the Tuckasegee River is a great way to cover water and explore many areas of the river. Currently with so many trout in the river system its a good bet to really work over sections of water and dissect riffle and run sections. This month the Tuckasegee River will be fishing at its peak for the year! Tons of aquatic insect life are abundant in the lower sections of the river. The Tuckasegee has more water types and features than any other river in the region. Loads of rocky ledges and shelves making perfect hiding places for trout and bass alike. Long riffles and runs that hold fish by the thousands, and deep pools where the big boys live! This river has it all!

 

Tuckasegee River Fly Fishing Report May 5th

Tuckasegee River Bass fishing

The Tuckasegee River in the late Spring and Summer holds lots of good sized Smallmouth, Kentucky Spotted Bass and White Bass. Bass by the thousands run up river from Fontana Lake in the spring creating lots of fishing potential throughout the warmer months. These fish will readily take flies and and spin tackle presented correctly. Smallmouth bass in particular  hold in some of the same area that trout do and presenting to them in the same manners as you would target a Brown trout will get your flies ate. These hard fighting fish are super fun to catch and pull like freight train.

Currently were are seeing great hatches of Little Yellow Sallies and Light Cahills all day long. Yellow Sallies are many a serious Smokies fishermans favorite hatch. These bright yellow Stoneflies hatch steadily all throughout the day and peak just before dark. Their bright yellow color makes an easy fly pattern to see even on the darkest sections of streams.

Hazel Creek flows are perfect right now for fly fishing. Water levels are running full and clear which make stalking up on these wild fish easier. We’re seeing trout feeding at all levels of the water columns right now. Which means fishing anything from dry flies to heavy nymphs will work well.

Hazel Creek Fly Fishing Report

Each week we will be posting a Hazel Creek Fly Fishing Report so that you can follow along as we lead adventures to the Smokies most storied stream. Fly Fishing on Hazel Creek in the Great Smoky Mountains is really heating up! In the past several weeks we have logged many days in the back of beyond while pursuing wild Rainbows and Browns on Hazel Creek. Warm weather and perfect water tempratures are turning the fishing on big time. The Smoky Mountains are starting to green up nicely and everything on Hazel Creek is coming to life.

Hazel Creek Fly Fishing Report, Hazel Creek Fly Fishing Guides and Trips,

Fly Fishing Hazel Creek in April

In April fly fishing really starts taking off on Hazel Creek. Tempratures in the back country start warming nicely and the mountains start greening up. Trout become increasingly active and feed aggressively from around the middle of the month and continue all summer long lasting well into the fall. This is the reason why our Hazel Creek Fly Fishing Trips start from mid April and run through mid October. We want you to experience the best fishing possible on Hazel Creek! Currently we’re seeing good hatches which are bringing the trout up top to feed. Dry fly action can be epic on Hazel Creek if you hit it just right! The Light Cahill and Yellow Sallies are our favorite hatches on Hazel Creek and its just starting to happen now!

Hazel Creek North Carolina

Just the visceral experience of Hazel Creek NC alone is worth the trip. Starting with the beautiful Fontana Lake and the North Shore of the Great Smoky Mountains. You’ll be treated to some of the most beautiful scenery staring up at the High Rocks and Shuckstack as you cross the lake. Often we see Bear and Deer swimming across the Hazel Creek Chanel in the mornings. Once you arrive at Hazel Creek where time has stood still, you immerse yourself in a land where life ran a different pace. The first signs of life are right in front of you if you know where to look. You’re guide will point them out as you pass by giving you a run down of some of the local history in the area. If you sit and ponder along the creek banks, as I often do, you can almost hear the lonesome train whistles ringing down from the mountains bringing logs into town where saw mills ran and children played. It’s a land that time has forgotten.

Great Smoky Mountains Fishing Report April 11th

The Great Smoky Mountains are starting to really heat up in terms of fly fishing action! This time of year things across the region really come alive. Spring rains and overall warming trends have the mountains starting to green up and the fishing turns incredible this time of year!

Great Smoky Mountains Fishing Report April 11th

Tuckasegee River Fly Fishing

The hottest fly fishing destination right now in the south is the Tuckasegee River! Fishing here is outstanding with over 29,000 trout per mile this month, its hard to beat! Home to Rainbow, Brown, and Brook trout with fish averaging 14-20 inches you will certainly be impressed. We regularly catch fish in excess of the mid 20-inch range too! The Tuckasegee is a wide western sized tailwater that is perfectly suited for both Wade Trips and Float Trips. Open room to cast and plenty of big river features make this a great place to catch some trout, or learn to fly fish! Hatches are great this month with tons of different Caddis species and Quill Gordon’s coming off the water all day long. We’re seeing some March Browns ( yes, they hatch in April instead of March like their namesake), Hendrickson, Blue Quill, Blue Winged Olives and tons of Stoneflies. There is more biomass in the Tuckasegee River than any other river in the state of North Carolina.

Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Great Smoky Mountains Fishing Report April 11th. The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is starting to fish very well. We’re still just a couple weeks away from what we consider the peak for fly fishing inside the park. When April arrives the action inside the park really starts to turn on quickly for catching beautiful wild trout! This month so far we’re seeing good hatches and great water levels all across the park streams. We’ve recieved plenty of rain making the streams run full. Its been almost a year now since the park streams have looked this good! The trout here are very active this week with the almost summer likes air temperatures putting them into feeding frenzy mode. The Smokies offer the prettiest streams and prettiest trout that we guide for. Don’t let the smaller size fool you, these jewels of the Smokies will test every ounce of skill you have. They’re also great for first time fly fishers too as they are opportunistic feeders and will smash most flies you put in front of them. The Tennessee Smoky Mountains near both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge are really starting to turn on. The lower elevation sections are fishing best right now. The North Carolina side of the Smokies are starting to fish good on low eleveation streams such as Deep Creek and the Oconaluftee River.

Hazel Creek Fly Fishing Trips

Hazel Creek fly fishing action is hot, and will continue to get even better as this month progresses. Long considered the wildest and best trout stream in the Smoky Mountains, Hazel Creek is that magical place you don’t want to miss. Hazel Creek can now be experienced as a guided day trip with Fly Fishing the Smokies. Instead of a multi day camping trip, why not enjoy Hazel Creek as a Day Trip! Fly Fishing this watershed is an experience like no other. There’s not a river inside the national park with more history and mystique. Hazel Creek is easily one of the most beautiful places in the country! Don’t miss out on fishing the best the Smoky Mountains have to offer.

The Tuckasegee River is the hottest fly fishing destination in the south right now. With upwards of 24,000 trout per mile you will be hard pressed to find something that fishes better this time of year! This week the big Brown trout have been on the prowl. Our guests have landed several nice river monsters this week. We’ve also put a good many large Rainbow trout in the net too. This time of year the Rainbows are spawning so the water is full of eggs. Big trout love to eat eggs because of the fat and protein content they contain. We’re also seeing lots of Caddis, Quill Gordon’s, Hendricksons, and Stoneflies hatching too.
