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 5:43 am, the temperature outside is 32.9 degrees.

Spring-like weather has arrived in the Smoky Mountains, temporarily. Expect high temperatures in the 60’s today through Friday. Lows at night will dip into the 50’s. Cold air will return this weekend, with highs in the 30’s and lows in the 20’s. Rain is likely Friday night. Snow is possible Saturday.

Little River is flowing at 132 cubic feet per second (cfs) or 1.78 feet on the flow gauge. Median flow for this date is 293 cfs. The water temperature is 33.1 degrees this morning.

The Smokies streams will warm this week. Fishing will improve but we’ve got a long way to go. What we are anticipating is a water temperature of 44 degrees or warmer, for the trout to become active. I don’t think that will happen but I suppose it is possible. These warm days and nights will be short lived, ending Friday night. Then, it will turn cold once again, and the stream temperatures will fall.

Maybe it will happen. I can’t guess at this point.

Fly fishing on a tailwater may be a better option. It is going to feel good outside. Most anglers in our area are ready to get out and go fishing. The water will be warmer below the dams. Of course, you need to find a suitable generation schedule for the type of fishing you do, either wading or boating.

I didn’t see this coming but the news is good. Guide Travis Williams has joined with David Knapp’s Trout Zone Anglers guide service. These two guys will compliment each other well. Travis has been a friend of our ours for years. He has been guiding in Great Smoky Mountains National Park since 2011. He is an excellent fly fisherman and guide and a great guy.

Travis is also a Gatlinburg City police officer who is married with two children.

David Knapp guides in Great Smoky Mountains National Park and offers float trips on the Caney Fork River. We have been sending customers to David for several years. He is an exceptional fly fishing guide and instructor. He is our good friend.

The Atlanta Fly Fishing Show will be held February 2nd and 3rd at the Infinite Energy Center, formerly the Gwinnett Center. Paula and I are going and we are both looking forward to it. There, we will see many old friends, customers and industry associates. This is going to be fun. You can learn more about the show by CLICKING HERE.

I’m going to the shop today to photograph flies for the online store. I’ve stayed away for a while, due to the worst cold I’ve had since I can remember, that lasted 2 weeks. The guys at the shop didn’t want it, and I didn’t want to give it to them. I’m looking forward to being there.

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