Winter 2016 Fishing Report for the Smoky Mountains

Well it looks like Old Man Winter is finally upon us. After a record setting warm start to Winter, the snows have finally arrived in the Smoky Mountains! The snow covered beauty of a trout stream is hard to resist for any of us. So when the skies darken and the white stuff starts to fall, we do what we do best, and that’s hit the water! Read ahead for our Winter 2016 Fishing Report!

Fly Fishing the Smokies, Fly Fishign the Great Smoky Mountains National Park,

Winter is a great time to explore the Smoky Mountains. This time of year in the Smoky Mountains we get off trail a bit and explore some of the cabins and historical sites of the park too. Nothing is more fun than finding and old home place or abandoned farm that no one has seen in years! Book a trip with our guides this time of year and let them know your interested in doing some exploring along the way. You’re guaranteed to see some cool stuff others will never experience! Of course we still fish, we just know taking a path less traveled will lead to interesting historical sites and fishing.

Winter 2016 Fishing Report

Winter 2016 Fishing Report

The best trout fishing this Winter will be mid morning through the afternoon. Look for days with sunshine and areas of the stream that sunlight hits early. This will warm up the stream and start aquatic insects hatching that trout love to eat. Best fly patterns will be Little Black Caddis in #16-18, Black Caddis Pupae in #16-18, Little Winter Stonefly nymphs in #16-20, Little Winter Stonefly dries in #14-18, Blue Winged Olives in #18-22, egg patterns in #10-12, and black midges in #22-26. Streamers such as black and olive Woolly Buggers in sizes #6-8, and dark brown Sculpins in #6-8. Work your flies slowly through likely holding water and make sure to cover every inch of water. Even though the trout are hungry and will be actively feeding, they will not be traveling far to intercept your flies.

The Cherokee Trophy Section is fishing good this winter. Big fish are holding at the bottom of long deep runs and are most active mid day. On pretty sunny afternoons we get into some nice dry fly action.

The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is fishing good despite colder water temperatures than surrounding streams. Fish are active once the sun comes up and continue nicely into the afternoon. Most trout are deep however don’t overlook faster riffles and runs for the actively  feeding trout which will take small nymphs and the occasional dry fly.

The grand daddy of them all is the Tuckasegee River. Winter fishing here is consistent all season despite what the elements throw at you. The waters of the Tuckasegee River are typically warmer than surrounding Smokies streams. Most fish will be deep and are gorging themselves on small midges and little dark caddis. This time of year is great for streamer fishing too. Trout are predators and behave as such. No self respecting big trout an resist a slow swimming streamer pattern bouncing along in their feeding zones. After all the name of the game in Winter for a trout is caloric intake, and a big meal is hard to resist! The water levels on the Tuckasegee River have been perfect for fishing from our Drift Boats.

 

Get outside this Winter and do some fishing and exploring in the Smoky Mountains. You’ll be glad you did!

 

We’ll see you on the water!

Mid Winter Smokies Fishing Report

Where did all the people go? The answer is simple, they’ve moved indoors. Is the fishing not good this time of year? Nothing could be farther from the truth. Fact is, the best time of year to catch a personal best trout is now!

Mention fishing this time of year, especially with the recent weather we have had, and folks think you are nuts! Then again, a thin line separates passion from insanity. Truth is, fishing during the Winter months is incredible! No other time of year can you head to a popular stream or lake and find you are the only one fishing today. Which brings us to the question, isn’t getting away from it all one of the reasons we go fishing in the first place?

Mid Winter Smokies Fishing Report, Fly Fishing the Smokies, Fly Fishing Great Smoky Mountains, Mid Winter Fly Fishing Report

One of the best kept Winter fishing secrets is big fish love cold weather, especially trout! The biggest trout of the year will undoubtedly be caught during the Winter months. Most trout spawn when the water temperatures here in the mountains start to dip below 48 degrees. This generally happens in November through mid December. During spawning season trout burn most of the calories and fat content they have packed on during the Fall. After the spawn, they need to eat at every opportunity to rejuvenate fat stores to carry them through cold Winter days ahead. Post spawn (this time of year), is your best best opportunity to catch a big trout.

The best trout fishing this week will be mid morning through the afternoon. Look for days with sunshine and areas of the stream that sunlight hits early. This will warm up the stream and start aquatic insects hatching that trout love to eat. Best fly patterns will be Little Black Caddis in #16-18, Black Caddis Pupae in #16-18, Little Winter Stonefly nymphs in #16-20, Little Winter Stonefly dries in #14-18, Blue Winged Olives in #18-22, egg patterns in #10-12, and black midges in #22-26.

Even though the trout are hungry and will be actively feeding, they will not be traveling far to intercept your flies.

Winter Fishing Report

Winter Fishing the Smokies

Winter marks the start of the season for us where we see some of the biggest trout put in our nets all year. Winter Fishing attracts many hardcore anglers and guides alike who look forward each year to seeing big trout become more active during the daylight hours. Fact is its spawning season for Brown and Brook trout. We also have some Rainbow trout here too that will spawn this time of year. Once this happens the water is full of fish either getting ready to spawn and fattening up or they have spawned and are trying to replenish calories lost. These fish are hungry and will eat a well placed fly without much hesitation.

Winter Fishing, Winter Fly Fishing the Smoky Mountains, Winter Fly Fishing the Tuckasegee River, Great Smoky Mountains National Park,

Winter Fishing in the Smoky Mountains

Winter Fly Fishing around the Smoky Mountains include fishing a wide variety of rivers. The best option is Wading or Drift Boat fishing tail-waters such as the Tuckasegee River where fish count numbers soar to 14,000 trout per mile. Fishing from the Drift Boats in winter are a pleasant way to cover miles of water while staying dry and comfortable.  You end up casting your flies to literally thousands of trout. we offer a 3/4 Float Trip that is perfect for hitting the best time of day to be Floating the Tuckasegee River.

Wade Fishing the Tuckasegee will have you concentrating your efforts targeting big fish and working over likely runs and riffles with a mixture of dry flies and nymphs.  The Tuckasegee river is known for its long riffles and runs which are full of rainbow, Brown and Brook trout. On the lower section of the Tuckasegee we are still seeing good numbers of Smallmouth bass to boot!

Winter Fishing in Cherokee

The Fly Fishing Only Trophy section on the Raven Fork will have you casting to possibly the biggest trout of your life!

The slower moving nutrient rich waters of the Raven Fork are a perfect habitat for big trout. Massive Rainbow trout that measure in pounds lurk these waters. We fish the long pools, riffles and runs, dead drifting both dries and nymphs for these hungry beats. Along with some incredible trout fishing, we also see the Elk from the Great Smoky Mountainous National Park who frequently cross the river and stop to watch us fish!

Winter Fishing in the Smoky Mountains,

Winter Fly Fishing the Smoky Mountains National Park

The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is amazingly beautiful during the Winter. The fishing can be very rewarding on days where we see warming trends in air temperatures which bring on hatches of Caddis,  Little Winter Stoneflies and Blue Winged Olives. Most fishing inside the park this time of year is done with nymphs, however most afternoons we see good opportunities to fish with dry flies as well. On most winter days inside the park you rarely see another fisherman, and the peacefulness is well worth throwing on an extra layer for!

June Fly Fishing Report

 

Fishing in the Smoky Mountains is incredible this week. If you haven’t been out yet, grab a rod and hit some of the fantastic rivers and lakes in the region.

The top destination this week has to be the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The park streams are fishing at their peak for the year. Trout everywhere are taking dry flies all day long, which in my opinion, is the most fun you can have with a fly rod. Top streams are Deep Creek, Oconaluftee River, Bradley Fork, Hazel Creek, and Forney Creek. Look for fish in the faster sections of water sitting on the edge of currents.

The Trophy Trout section of the Raven Fork in Cherokee is another hot destination this week. Recently restocked, this section is fishing very well. Big fish are working in the early morning and late evening in the current seams and tail-outs. There’s nothing like watching a trophy sized trout take a well places dry fly off the surface. For the best mid-day action look for shade and over hangs where rising trout will be taking light Cahills and Sulphers.

The Nantahala River is an amazing fishery. The lower section of river below the power house is fishing very good during mid-day generations. Don’t worry about the rafters spooking the fish. The trout here see so many boats they are conditioned to the activity and don’t spook easily. Late afternoon when the water recedes is where the real fun begins. Rising fish all across the river give way to just how many trout the lower Nantahala holds. Cast dry flies to rising trout until it gets so dark you can’t see your fly anymore.

The Tribal Enterprise waters in Cherokee are stocked twice each week and are fishing very good. 30 miles of Rainbow, Brown and Brook Trout keep people from all across the country happy with generous creel limits and easy access. Cherokee is one of the best places to take a child to catch their first trout, or if you want to catch a good mess of fish for dinner.

Fontana Lake is fishing good for Smallmouth and Largemouth Bass. Lots of bass are still on their beds and post spawn bass are eating anything in the water to build back up lost energy from the spawn. Look for rocky shoreline and mud lines coming from wind lines off of banks and points. Crank baits, Buzz baits, Spinner baits and flukes are working really well. River mouths and coves are still the hottest spots to catch some big Largemouth. Nantahala and the Little Tennessee River are hot areas right now to catch some bruisers.

For river Smallmouth fishing look no further than the Tuckasegee and Little Tennessee Rivers. Both are just now starting to see some great action for Smallies. The top water bite is just starting to turn on mid-day from noon until about 5pm. For morning and evening, use sub surface lures and flies. Pearl white Flukes and spinner baits, along with a multitude of streamer flies will get you into some good Smallmouth. Please catch and release the Smallmouth Bass you do catch. Smallmouth bass in the mountains of WNC have a very slow growth rate. According to state biologist Powell Wheeler, a Smallmouth bass that is 13 inches long is over 7 years old! Imagine how old a 20 inch Smallmouth would be… possibly as old as the angler who caught it.

Best flies this week for trout are;

Yellow Stimulator #10-16, Conner’s Yellow Palmer #12-16, Royal Wulff #12-16, Tennessee Wulff #12-16, Adams Parachute #12-18, Female Adams #12-18, Adams Variant #12-16, Thunderhead #12-18, Secret Weapon #12-16, Green Drakes #8-10, Mahogany Duns in #12-14, Little Yellow Sallies #14-16, Light Hendrickson #12-16, Dark Hendrickson #12-16, Sulpher dries #12-14, March Browns #10-14, Tan Elk Hair Caddis #12-16, Olive Elk Hair Caddis #12-16, Cinnamon Elk Hair Caddis in #12-16, Blue Winged Olives in #18-22, Golden Stonefly nymphs #8-12, Brown Stonefly nymphs #6-10, Yellow Sallie nymphs #12-16, Pheasant Tail Nymphs #12-18, Hares Ear nymphs #12-16, egg patterns in #10-12, Rainbow Warriors in #14-20, Caddis Pupae #14-18, and cream midges in #22-26, Black Midges #22-26.
