Townsend, Tennessee - Fly Fishing in the Great Smoky Mountains, East Tennessee and Western North Carolina

If you do not see today’s Fishing Report, please refresh your browser to empty your cache.

Welcome to the Fishing Report from Townsend, Tennessee in the Great Smoky Mountains. At 5:56 am, the temperature outside is 4.5 degrees. As usual, it is warmer at the Knoxville Airport, 12.0 degrees. Another personal weather station in Townsend is reporting 5.9 degrees. Any way you cut it, it is cold!

Today will be sunny with a high temperature in the mid-20’s. Tonight will be back in the single digits again. Then, warmth moves into the Tennessee Valley. Expect highs in the upper 40’s, 50’s and maybe 60 degrees Wednesday. Thursday’s high is predicted to be 65 degrees. There is only a slight chance for precipitation until next Friday. I looks like right now, it will rain Friday and possibly next Saturday.

Little River is flowing at 209 cubic feet per second (cfs) or 2.06 feet on the flow gauge. Median flow for this date is 205 cfs. The water temperature is 32 degrees this morning, or colder.

Jack Gregory came over to our house yesterday. We talked about fishing the whole time we were together. He told me he drove up into the Park one day this week. He said fishing was practically impossible due to the abundance of anchor ice. That is probably worse now. You can read more about anchor ice by CLICKING HERE.

He was looking for brown trout, but said even if he could have fished, nothing would bite. The water is too cold.

The slow pools in Little River, in town, are partially frozen. Again, that condition might be worse again today, and tomorrow.

We wait for warmer temperatures. The warming trend is coming tomorrow. The long term forecast indicates it will continue, for the most part, through January 20th. February is usually warmer than January. Some years, spring hatches and good fishing begins in late February. Some years, that happens in March.

Jack Gregory will be tying at the shop today, as a Free Demonstration, between 10 am and 2 pm. All you have to do is show up. You will enjoy Jack. I think he is the best fly fisherman I know.

I told Jack yesterday, if my cold was better today, I would be there. The cold is worse, so I won’t. I hope you all have a great time at the shop today.

Have a great day and thank you for being here with us.
