Fly Fishing Caney Fork River Tennessee
The Caney Fork River Tailwater is located below Center
Hill Lake and Dam in middle Tennessee, just off
Interstate I-40. It is stocked by the TWRA (Tennessee
Wildlife Resources Agency).
The stream averages from thirty to ninety feet wide and
flows slow whenever the turbines are not running. The
water flows from the deep water of Center Hill Lake
through the dam at about fifty-five degrees year-round.
The river can be waded, fished from the bank or fished
from a canoe, water craft or drift boat.
It is always advisable to check on the discharge
schedule prior to fishing Caney Fork because it greatly
affects how you must fish the river. The water rises
suddenly and fast. There are three primary access
areas - the dam, Happy Hollow, and Betty's Island.
Fly fishing the Caney Fork River Tailwater is good
year-round. There is no closed season.
Fishing can be good most days during the winter
months. Avoid the coldest days.
Spring fishing can be great provided there is a normal
amount of rainfall prior to your trip. It strictly depends on
the release schedules.
The water is still released at around fifty-five degrees
even on the hottest days of summer. Fishing can be
good if you can avoid the recreational boaters.
Fall is the favorite time of many anglers that regularly
fish the Caney Fork. The brown trout spawn in the Fall
and a lot of large trout are usually caught.
