Smoky Mountain Fly Fishing
Smoky Mountain Fly Fishing is a year around special treat full of trout. The Great Smoky Mountains and surrounding region are a special place in the world offering a year around trout fishery unparalleled by any area in the country. No matter what time of year you visit, there is always great trout fishing on one of our many rivers, lakes, and streams. The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is by far the most beautiful area that we guide, and has the prettiest trout that we fish for. These wild Rainbow, Brown and Brook trout are stunning with vibrant colors unmatched by any other fish in the region. The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is home to the largest population of Southern Appalachian strain of Brook trout to be found anywhere in the region. Although we have Rainbow and Brown trout inside the park, the Brook trout are the only true native species of trout in the Smokies. Brook trout, or Speckled trout as they are commonly called, live in some of the most rugged and remote streams in the mountains, typically around 4,000ft in elevation and above. Fly fishing for Brook trout is a special treat and anglers from all across the world come to the Smoky Mountains to try and catch one. The Great Smoky Mountains are home to many species of wildlife including the Elk, which were native to this region of the country a few hundred years ago. Recently reintroduced by a collaboration between the National Park Service and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, these magnificent creatures now roam their native lands once again. Often times we are visited on the streams by the Elk while fly fishing. A wild Smoky Mountain Rainbow trout is about as colorful as you can get. God’s fingerprints are clearly visible on these fish. Rainbow’s are the most plentiful trout species to be found inside the park. They have a great appetites, and will crush flies for you all year long! The Great Smoky Mountains offer some of the most spectacular scenery during the Fall. The mountains come alive with vibrant colors best described as a box of Crayons. There is beauty in every season inside the Smoky Mountains, however Fall is the most spectacular. It’s hard to keep your eyes and mind on watching a fly drift though the riffles and runs this time of year. Smoky Mountain Fly Fishing during the Winter is hard to imagine for most folks. We see the biggest trout of the year caught during the winter months. Big fish love colder weather and we have the pictures to prove it! Winter fly Fishing in the Smoky Mountains region is hard to beat. We typically have milder winters than what people may thing. Most often daytime highs reach the mid fifties and we get plenty of sunshine which makes being outside very nice. Lots of days you may have the rivers and streams all to yourself. Leaving the day between just you and your next best fish!
Smoky Mountain Fly Fishing during the Spring is a great time to wet a hook! Tempratures start to warm and everything comes alive in the streams and mountains. We start to seeing an increase in feeding activity from the trout and action is consistent all day long. Spring is a great time to catch good sized Rainbow and Brook trout in the Smokies. Trout are coming off of a long winter and are very hungry and eat most anything that hits the water!
Summer fly fishing in the Smoky Mountains is a spectacular time to catch trout on dry flies. Summer is the best season for chasing wild trout in the Smokies streams. Day time highs are down right hot in the low valleys but the Smoky Mountains remain nice and cool all Summer long leaving the resident trout happy and feeding very well. This time of year we catch trout all day long on the surface using many different types of flies that our guides tie themselves just for you! Stream levels are great and so is the fishing.
