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 7:04 am, the temperature outside is 19.7 degrees.

Today will be mostly cloudy with a high temperature in the low 40’s. Colder air arrives tomorrow with highs in the low 30’s and light snow. Wednesday will be very cold with a high in the low 20’s. The weekend will be much warmer.

Little River is flowing at 249 cubic feet per second (cfs) or 2.18 feet on the flow gauge. Median flow for this date is 288 cfs. The water temperature is 32.2 degrees this morning.

Newfound Gap Road is still closed in Great Smoky Mountains National Park due to ice and snow. Many roads that were closed, are now open. You can view the Park’s Road Twitter page by CLICKING HERE, for up to date road closures and openings.

The sun shined yesterday and the clouds retreated. The mountains we could see from our house were white, due to the remaining snow from days before. I think it will remain that way for a few more days. It is beautiful out there, but very cold.

Fishing will be slow in the Park. The water is too cold, near freezing in the low elevations and colder in the higher mountains. It will be warmer today, but not enough to change the fishing conditions for the better. The trout are sluggish and hunkered down.

Some visitors to Gatlinburg found a bear cub trapped in their car, Saturday. What was probably the cub’s mother, was outside the car. The encounter was recorded on video. You can watch it on the WBIR website by CLICKING HERE.

The people finally got the car door open so the cub could escape. It appeared to me, after the cub left, the inside of the car was torn to shreds. Bears will leave their dens during the Winter. I’ve never seen a bear out this time of year, but they say it does happen.

An animal, and I’m not sure what, tore down one of our bird feeders, two nights this weekend. The steel shepherds hook was bent to the ground. I think a deer did it. Maybe it was a bear. Now, I’m bringing that feeder inside at night.

A bear attacked a man, at his home, in Naples, Florida this weekend. It happened in his back yard. Read this story in the Naples Daily News by CLICKING HERE. I walk outside at night often at our house, without lights on. And, I know for sure, we have bears here. I really don’t think much about it. I might think differently now, after reading this article.

Bear attacks are so rare, I’m not worried, even when I’m outside, in the darkness. When we see a bear at our house, it or they are usually going somewhere else and it is always during daylight hours. We don’t see what is out there at night.

I can’t believe I’m talking, writing or thinking about bears in January! There is not much fishing to discuss.

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