November 26th
The fishing right now is the best fall fishing that I have seen in years! Bigger browns and bows are stacked up along gravel bars and washes all along the river. Just yesterday my guys caught more slot rainbows than I have seen in months. There aren't as many browns, but the ones you hook into are going to be big. The biggest one yesterday was just shy of 21." I have a few openings between now and Christmas and next weekend is open. Go to my Facebook page at DoubleDOutfitters to see daily updates and some pictures of nice fish. It might be colder, but the fish are biting. As always, if it looks good then we go. If not then keep your $ and take your girl out. As always, it is best to contact me at 502 432-5188.

The lake has finally turned over and the quality of water being released is much better. Guided yesterday and did very well. Three browns over 20" were landed by one of my return clients. Not too shabby! I have a few openings in December. As always it is best to text or call me at 502 432-5188. Check out some of the recent fish that my clients have caught at Double D Outfitters on Facebook!

I have this Saturday the 5th open. Fishing has been solid for fish up to 18". Each day an angler can expect to catch 30+ fish and a lot more if you have the skills. Give me a ring or text at 502 432-5188 if you want to get out. The next opening is the first weekend of December.

Fishing has been solid, especially when the Corps doesn't run water until noon. There are a handful of areas where you can get a hit on nearly every cast. In the last 2-3 weeks the size of fish seem to be improving. Yes, you still catch a few stockers here and there, but most are 11-16". This past weekend a lot of fish were right at 14" and a few up to 18". Every once in a while you will hook into something that just runs like heck then snap! It keeps you wondering what the heck was that? Eggs are ruling the roost and for good reason. Today we landed a nice male that was oozing milt. You can also go hopper/dropper when you see them midging with a size 18 black zebra or a wd 40. The next opening is the first week of December. As always, if it looks good as far as the weather and water look then we go. If not then save your $ and take your better half out for a nice date.

Fishing over the past two weeks has been solid. We haven't landed any over 20", but a lot of slot bows have been landed. A few big browns in the 5-6 pound range have been hooked, but when you drop your rod with 5x then only bad things can happen. The Corps is running 1600 cfs 24/7 then will run 1 generator at different times throughout the day. Peach colored eggs are by far the hottest fly. I will also fish a hopper dropper rig along high banks. Find midging trout and that rig will produce some fish and some of those are larger fish. On Sunday we found some of those fish along high banks. You could see some 20" class fish slurping midges, but the problem was there were too many leaves to get a good drift.

Fished with a new client yesterday who tore them up on the infamous egg. Ya know it is going to be good when you hook into a fish on the very first cast then the next and the next after that. The Corps cut back on generation and we were thankful. Fishing the egg involves much more than just dead drifting it. You have to mend, lift then drop your rod, similar to lifting a nymph at the end of the drift. We also fished hoppers for the last 15 minutes and landed a nice brown hen. The next available date that I have is Wednesday, November 23rd. If you want to be on a contact list if a cancellation creates an opening then please contact me at 502 432-5188.

If you know anything about fishing the Cumberland then you know that you have to adjust and adapt to be successful. Took out two newbies, Fernando and Robbie, this past weekend. These guys had tried fly fishing in the past but didn't have much success. My job: Put them on feeding fish. Well, we got a good bit of rain and some of the areas that I wanted to fish were too off colored. No worry, some of the other areas were loaded with fish. I don't think we landed a fish over"15, but we could have filled the boat up with some nice eating sized fish. By the way, every fish was released. Peach colored eggs worked the best and will continue to do so through the winter. Hopper fishing should be picking up, but for whatever reason I haven't seen much midge action on top. At this time of the year you should be able to use a hopper or hopper dropper combo and target those midging fish. Maybe We can get into some of those fish this weekend.

Guided both days this past weekend and it was a great time with great people. Barry and Todd from Georgia came on up for the weekend and put the hurt on a lot of fish. The guys caught over 100 fish on Saturday alone. The Corps began running the sluice gates at 1,600 cfs 24/7. Around 10 Eastern they then add 2 generators on top of that. Fishing with eggs in certain areas drew a strike on nearly every other cast before the water from the 2 generators arrived. In the afternoon we then went to throwing hoppers along the high banks, especially in areas where there was shade. Todd landed a 22" brown on a hopper Sunday afternoon. The key is smacking the hopper on the water and letting it drift for no more than 10 seconds. Todd's big fish hit it in less than two seconds after it hit the water. Also, make sure to throw it in clean water and not areas where there are a bunch of leaves. My experience has taught me that the fish have an easier time identifying the fly in cleaner water which results in more strikes. Go to my Facebook page at DoubleDOutfitters for updated reports and some pictures of bug trout. As always, it is best to contact me via cell at 502 432-5188.

Guided yesterday and we did good. Certain areas are holding many fish, especially deep water with current and structure. A lot of the time you can see the fish and it really gets your heart going, especially when you see a 2 ft rainbow feeding on midge larva and pupa. The fish are starting to color up nicely as they prepare for the fall/winter spawn. I believe there is one opening between now and Thanksgiving time. As always it is best to contact me on my cell at 502 432-5188.
