Fly Fishing Tennessee

The Elk River
The Elk continues to produce fish. The catching is slow by the access points but the fishing is good when getting into the float. Nymphs work when floated under an indicator and with low flows for the most part the drift has to be near perfect. Watch the generation schedule and when you are on the water keep a lookout for rising water just in case TVA releases an unexpected pulse.
The Caney Fork
The water above Center Hill Dam got quite a boost over the past few days. As a matter of fact the lake level rose over 4 feet. Look for accelerated releases this week, after Sunday, with small or no windows for wading. Boats and big flies on sinking lines could just produce a brute.
Musky Waters
The rain last week raised the musky waters up into to the trees with a hard-fast current. That being said we tied some musky flies for use this week. 
Learning to Fly Fish
If you or someone you know want to learn to fly fish including how to cast, entomology, mending, how to catch and release fish, as well as wading tips, just give me a call. We can book a wade or float trip to help all clients become better anglers. 

We are booking into March now and hoping the generation will cooperate for the trips. If you want to set up a trip just email or call/text 615-796-5143.
