    Default Murfreesboro

    I did a search for fishing around Murfreesboro and found a few old threads with some helpful info. I'll be spending two days in Murfreesboro at the end of this month (26th and 27th). I'm looking for advice on spending some time fishing. Looks like there are two good options to occupy my time on the W Fork of the Stones. Can anyone suggest some good patterns to go after the stocked trout or any other fish?

    Also, any help on shops that carry fly gear? And any good reccomendations for places to take the wife to eat? She'll be taking the bar exam so I'm sure the first night will need to be someplace not so crowded. The second night will probably be a place to let her unwind. Thanks.

    I would contact David Perry at http://www.southeasternfly.com/.

    I believe he lives in the area and feel sure he would give you some info on places to fish and eat. Good guy. Ties some awesome musky flies too!

    I'll second David Perry and add that if you have the time and money and the tailwater flows allow, taking a float trip with him is well worth the time and money investment!

    Thanks Gary and David. I'll try and get in touch with him. I'll only have a few hours in the morning and then again in the afternoon. I'll have to make sure and get her too and from her testing site and get some lunch. Will probably just stick to the West fork of the Stones River and try for some stocker trout or warm water species.

    Eat at Toots. You won't regret it. Try the stones river. There's an old mill pond there and the creek below if you don't have time for a float. Lynn

    A float is going to be out of the question for sure. Looks like my time will be in two sets. 9-12 and 1-4. After that will be tying flies in the hotel room and trying to keep my wife focused on passing this big test. More than likely I'll just try wading around at the Manson Pike Trailhead and avoid the crowds at Nice's Mill.

    Can anybody offer some good patterns for stockers? All of my fly fishing has been for warm water species so I'm trying to happen into my first trout on the fly. Even if it is a stocker.
