We came back to our home in the Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee over the weekend after our annual trip to Yellowstone Country. The first week of October always kicks off one our busiest times on our guide calendar.
Fall weather is perfect, the colorful foliage provides an incredible backdrop, and the fishing is always good. Water levels in the Smokies are a little low right now, but just about what we expect in the autumn. Hopefully our tailwater flows get a little more regular. Right now flows on the Clinch are looking good. Norris Lake is exactly where it was at this time last year so we’re hoping for a repeat of last years’ phenomenal float schedule and eager fish.
We’re also putting together a wrap up from our western trip. This year’s group trip to TroutHunter on the Henry’s Fork was arguably the best we’ve ever had. I know there were more large fish landed among this group than any other in the past.
