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. Thick clouds are hanging over the valley this morning but it is not raining yet. Looking at the radar it is on the way though.

River levels aren't too bad so far this morning but they are going to rise today once the rain begins. The gauge is giving a reading of 2.65 feet or 458 c.f.s. The daily normal is 295 c.f.s. Water temperature is 46F. Temps should rise all week.

So far the rain is staying to the west. If that keeps up fishing in the Smokies might be workable today. Water levels are still a little on the high side so stay to the edges. Nymphs will be the best bet. You might try some larger nymphs like Pat's Rubber legs. Streamers might even be a fun way to go.

Tradd Little and Mike Wallace are here this morning for a FREE Fly Tying Demo from 10 am till 2pm. Mike is tying traditional wet flies which are perfect for the early spring. Tradd will be tying a variety of patterns.

Next weekend we have a Beginner Fly Tying Class. There is still space to get in on the class. The price is just $85.00. It is an all day class. If you've been thinking about tying flies this is a great way to start. Give us a call to reserve your spot 865-448-9459.

We had 14 boxes of Simms arrive last week. I spent most of the week going through the boxes. Colors and styles changed on some of the boots so I had to make new item numbers for them. This means the that other ones we already had in stock are now last year's model and on sale. Freestone Boots have changed a little. We still have a good selection available. Check them out on the Online Catalog. G3 Guide boots are also on sale. CLICK HERE to find them.

If you haven't been in the Shop in a few weeks we have moved quite a few things around. The flies are in a different place. There is a new wall in the wader department. A whole wall of hats. You just need to stop by and check it out. Once we get a few more things cleaned up we'll post pictures on Instagram and Facebook.

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