We have been fishing all over lately from the park to the Tailwaters and even the lakes. So far we haven’t found bad fishing anywhere. The Holston River has been on fire with this crazy caddis hatch. We have been catching a lot of fish and some really nice ones. Today (Muffie) and I floated the holston and did really well. This was her first time fly fishing for trout and she did good to say the least. These fish are so active, they are slamming caddis on the top and eating anything under the service. These are some nice fish that were caught today.
With all of the water that has gone through this river it has made the fish super strong and they put up a great fight. Mix that with an average of 12 to 14 inch fish and you can have a pretty fun day. We hooked up with some very nice fish, but then had some L.D.R’s (long distance releases). That is what makes it fun though. Call us today for a float trip on the Holston to get in on some of this action. The National Park and the smallmouth are also fishing good. Don’t forget about troutfest this weekend in Townsend, TN. We will have a booth set up and we hope to see you there.
