Currently the fishing on Neely Henry is deep into a Summer pattern. Water temps are in the 90′s and fish are on the ledges. You can catch fish right now on a go2bait company 10in worm, and a go2bait company finesse worm teamed up with a tackle doctor jig head. We are fishing ledges ht go from 12ft and top out around 6ft. Usually if you find 1 fish you are going to find several. Be on the lookout for surfacing activity, shad flipping, ect….this is a great sign. If you can find a ledge with baitfish then you are going to be sure the bass will follow. Also, the stripe activity is really picking up on the main river! Be sure to drag a worm up under them to catch some quality largemouth and spots s well. I have several days available and would love to take you on an evening or weekend guide trip!

Been fishing quite a lot here lately. Currently the water temps are running mid to high 40′s on Neely Henry and the water here lately has been extremely muddy. Fish can be found in the backs of creeks especially if you can find some clearer water. Fish right now can be caught on a variety of baits such as the Strike King 1.5, Tackle Doctor spinnerbaits (white single Colorado blade), and shaky head rigged with a Go2bait 4.5 shaky worm(in the clearer water) I expect things to be picking up within the next 4 weeks as the water temps rise and hopefully the Spring weather moves in. Come fish with me this Spring. I am getting booked up already and looking forward to a great fishing season!
