Stones River Fishing Report

The Center Hill Dam is blowing a lot of water right now. We can float the Caney on the current generation but it is not as productive as we like. Streamers are the way to go and something with a little bit of weight to break the surface of the water is the streamer of choice. Knotting that streamer to a full sink line will get it in the zone.
Tims Ford Dam is generating throughout the day with some small windows of wading opportunity on the Elk being the norm. Watch out for unexpected releases as the schedule has been a bit inconsistent over the past few days. Nymphs are fishing best right now and swinging a streamer on falling water, if you can catch it, is productive.
White Bass have been keeping things busy on the Stones between torrential downpours and rising waters. This river is very scenic with some good runs, long pools and rock walls to keep anglers busy with their next choice of fishy water. We get on the Stones a few times during springtime and have some good trips when time permits.
When the water level gets right the fish are responding to small streamers, well in relation to musky flies the offerings are small. Yellow, white and some patterns with lots of flash are working well. Pick something that pushes a good-bit of water and you will find a fly that is worth taking out of the box. Articulation is working right now, especially with the stained water conditions. 
As Spring showers roll through Middle TN we are scheduling trips and a lot of time we are rescheduling them as well. The rain will not last forever though and soon we will get into a more stable weather pattern. A more stable weather pattern or should I say less rain will allow anglers to get into the casting braces and we will be bringing trout to the net again. 

For those who have been rescheduling trips thank you for working with us and for those who have your days scheduled in the future we are keeping our fingers crossed. We are getting people on the water well into May but still have some open dates. For those itching to get out there just email, call, or text, to schedule time in the casting braces.
