Fly Fishing Around Murfressboro, TN

Good Afternoon! We’ve been sticking around close to home over the past week or so. I’ve been getting some of my chores done around the house (what do you think I fish all the time?), writing some articles and working out the details of a few trips. But, between all that we’ve been getting out for some warm water fishing.

We’ve been hitting the local streams in and around Murfreesboro chasing stripe, stripers and hybrid. The water level has a lot to do with success, as well as putting the right fly in front of the right fish. I took the Muppets which produced pretty well for stripe and a bass here and there. Clousers worked for others. But the Wiggle Minnow seems to work best for those who have been chasing these fish locally for some years and really have the feel for it.

With the Caney generating so much water, the Elk generation as spotty as it is and the Clinch River not real good for an all day float, I suggest hitting those local freestones for a little warm water action. I like it and I think you’ll like it too…..But, get those chores done around the house first.

  1. I agree about hitting the warm water options. I've been doing that more over the last year than I used to and with all the rain we're getting, the Caney is going to be running water for a long time...
