May16th
Guided both Saturday and Sunday this past weekend and we caught a bunch of them. A lot and I mean a lot of the fish were in the 14-17 inch range and they are super healthy. The key is to find water that isnt too deep or too swift. The caddis are hatching in certain areas and the action is fantastic if you hit those areas when the Corps is not generating water. I always have a rod or two rigged with an egg pattern and another two rigged with a brown roach and a rainbow warrior dropper or a bead head caddis, both in size 16. I am fully booked until early July. If you want a July trip then inquire soon! As always, contact me via text at 502 432-5188. You can always view daily reports and trip results on my facebook page at Double D Outfitters.

It is almost here! The Corps is starting to hold back on water releases which means fishing and catching! I do not have any May or June openings. Everything has been booked, but there are several July dates that are still available.As always, it is the best to text/call me at 502 432-5188 to book a trip. Lets hope that I have a real fishing report next weekend!

Went down to the river a couple of weeks ago and whoa! Nothing like seeing 4 ft of water covering the parking lot at Helms landing. I used to get all depressed and bent out of shape when confronted with conditions like this, but what can you do? Most of us have a love/hate relationship with the Cumberland: It can provide some of the best fly fishing one could possibly experience and then you have conditions such as this. Yep, I am tired of tying flies, but I have plenty to do around my house. I still have a handful of June dates available and several in July. Last summer and fall we experienced the best fishing since the work on the dam ended and I am hoping for a repeat. You can always text or call me at 502 432-5188 if you have any questions on my services. Once we get out and start catching then I will begin posting daily pictures on my Double D Outfitters Facebook page.

Well, it keeps raining and raining and it doesnt look to change anytime soon. I dont do a whole lot of guiding until the late spring, but do occasionally get out on weekends during the winter. That hasnt been the case this winter. After Christmas it was fishable at times, but it was oh so cold! The good news is that people have been booking several of my summer days and that gets me in the mood to tie more flies. Each year I tie up a ton of flies during the winter and convince myself that it will get me through the summer and fall. Wrong! Each year I pick up more clients and my calendar has fewer openings, especially on weekends. If you are looking at getting out on the Cumberland this year then dont wait too long to book your trip. No deposit necessary. If it looks good then we go. If not then we simply reschedule. It is best to contact me via texting or calling my cell at 502 432-5188. Take care, Dave

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Years to all! Fishing has slowed down primarily due to a 3 inch rain a week ago. We had been catching fish even with the cold weather, but the Corps is really cranking the water. Another reason for the high releases is electricity demand. We are going to have some near zero overnight temps and the heat pumps in the South will be running non stop. My guess is the river could become fishable within 2 weeks. Give me a ring or text me at 502 432-5188 if you want to get out on the water. Dont forget to check out updated reports and pictures/video on my Facebook page at Double D Outfitters.

Guided both days this weekend and did very well way downstream. The lake is still in the process of turning over and the fishing in the first few miles below the dam isn't the best. Ya gotta go way on down to have success. There were a few areas where the bows were really stacked up and boy did they slam the peach and salmon colored eggs! Check out my facebook page at double d outfitters for some of last weekend 'a pics and videos. I won't be fishing the next couple of weekends because it is time to hit the woods and bag a deer or two. I still have a few openings from mid to late December. You can contact me at 502 432-5188.

I only fished this past Saturday and looking back I think Sunday was my first day off in over a month and a half. With these colder temps the lake should be turning over soon which will improve the O2 levels and fishing will kick into high gear. Don't get me wrong, fishing is still solid and the pictures on my Facebook page proves it. What's working? Well it is that time of the year when eggs will outperform any fly and everyone knows how found I am of them. Clown, salmon, peach, and chartreuse peach are my favorites. Last Saturday the water was off colored due to the rains and the Chartreuse egg did it's thing. I have a few dates open between now and New Years. Give a ring/text at 502 432-5188 if you are interested in booking a trip.

The water is as low as I have seen in the last year. The bite can be tough, but wherever you find moving water then you are going to find fish. Last weekend one of my guys from Indy landed a 22" bow on a chartreuse peach egg. Eggs are on as fish are preparing for the spawn. Occasionally you will see larger browns porpoising in the shoal areas, but it seems that the rainbows are the ones cooperating. I still have October 29th open then after that my next opening aren't until the first weekend of a December. Some of you who have fished with me during the late fall and early winter understand just how good the fishing can be! Give me a ring or send me a text at 502 432-5188 if you are interested in getting out with me.

I have been at it nearly every weekend day since school started and it keeps getting better. Didn't guide today due to the remnants of a hurricane, but I look forward to getting out there next weekend. The browns and some bows are beginning to show up in the shoal areas to do their thing. I saw a handful of bigger browns in the 5-7 pound range porpoising at one gravel bar early in the morning. We landed a bunch and I mean a bunch of slot rainbows yesterday. Fish and wildlife stocked a whole bunch of fish in the 15-19 inch range and there were some areas where we caught fish after fish. They look healthy and I hope they aren't illegally harvested. What is working? Chartreuse peach egg patterns and chartreuse and orange mop flies have been hammering them. I have also been using my brown roach with a zebra midge or rainbow warrior. We broke off a few big ones yesterday on this rig and never got a good look at them. I have a few days in late October, November and December. Last year some of the best fishing was from late November to early January. Give me a ring or text at 502 432-5188 if you are interested in getting out on the river.

Fished with some return customers from Georgia and they hammered them big time! I usually don't count fish, but Barry and Todd did and every time we landed a fish we tried to think of a college or pro football player who wore that #. That is tough to do when you catch 113 in one day and a total of 202 for both days. Most of the fish were rainbows and well over 25 each day were between 15-19 inches. I might have an opening in late October. As always, it is best to contact me at 502 432-5188.
