Fishing Report

as of 10/26/17

Caney Fork River:

The generation schedule has typically kept wading fishermen out until Noon during the week and plenty of wading opportunities on the weekend. With the cooler weather continuing, be careful of bothering spawning browns on their redds.

Cumberland River, KY:

Generation has been good for boaters with wide windows of no generation, wade fishermen need to be cautious of where the water is.

Elk River:

The water release has backed down to offer wadable water and the fishing has been good. Try your best to float and find fish that aren’t heavily pressured at access points.

Duck River:

The generation schedule has backed down to offer plentiful wading opportunities. They have recently stocked trout for the winter stocking program and also put in a few albino trout for a few lucky anglers.

Hiwassee River:

The generation schedule has finally backed down to offer plentiful wading opportunities, be cautious of generator starting up with fall rains. Blue wings should be abundant and keep any eye out for an fall caddis hatch.

Holston River:

Water level has been good and so has the fishing.

South Holston and Watauga Rivers:

Water levels are good and so is the fishing. Plenty of trophy browns have been caught this winter. Be looking for BWO’s, Black flies and Sulphers.

Clinch River:

The generation schedule has been good lately and so has the fishing. Midges and BWO’s have been the call lately.

Obey River:

The generation schedule has been fair but keep an eye for day-to-day changes. Midges are working well, white and gray buggers have been a go-to for early morning streamer swinging.

Mountain Streams:

Water temps need to be around 45-50 degrees during the winter to get the fish into feeding mode. Try planning around warmer clusters of days and hope for the best. It’s a beautiful place to be when the snow is falling.

J. Percy Priest Lake:

Fishing has been slow in the lake with this cold weather. Look for a run of a few warm days to get fish moving.

Old Hickory Lake:

Fishing has been slow in the lake with this cold weather. Look for a run of a few warm days to get fish moving.

Harpeth River and Its Tributaries:

Fish are moving exceptionally slow, look for water temps to rise above 50-55 degrees for optimal fishing. Working the bottom slow is your best option with cold smallies.
