Dry Fly Fishing in the Smokies Only Gets Better

We’re about to start a bit more fishing and floating on the Holston and Clinch Rivers, but right now we’re still enjoying all the great dry fly fishing in the Smokies. Today Charity reported that the fish started to rise by 10 AM and was best when the sun was out.

The weather forecast for the week features plenty of warm sunshine, but there were some cloudy moments today when it got a little cool. Charity guided some of our oldest customers, Jim and Glenda Gibson from Michigan. We even stayed with them for a few days a couple of years back when we spoke to fly fishing clubs in Kalamazoo, Michigan and South Bend, Indiana the same week.

We’ll be on the river quite a bit over the next few days and we’ll also be speaking at the grand opening of the Nantahala Outdoor Center’s Great Outpost in Gatlinburg this Saturday. They’ve set up a beautiful 17,000 square foot store and it’s conveniently located right at the park entrance.

We’ll both be there all day on Saturday so come and talk fishing with us!
