Up-Close Fishing Report

Bryson city NC fishing tours

4-20-14 / water temp 56 / air temp 58

Guided fishing trips on Fontana Lake have getting better and better.  After a long winter the smallmouth and spotted bass are getting more and more aggressive.   Been finding lots of spotted bass up the little Tennessee river.  Most fish are relating to medium to small pea gravel with some chunk rock.  Look for fish coming to the surface and always keep a close eye on your depth finder.  Been running alot of fishing trips lately with good catches of spotted bass.  Some clients have pursued the smallmouth with ok success.  Have managed some real lunkers earlier this month slow rolling a spinner bait or slowly fishing a suspending jerk bait.  Most smallmouth have come from pea size gravel bank as the fish are beginning to spawn.  Lots of smaller sized smallmouth are up river of almond boat ramp relating to chuck rock of the railroad.  Some good numbers have been found up the Tuckasegee river fishing near Bryson City.
