Haha...I completely missed that one. I knew your name didn't fit perfectly but as one whose name is frequently mispronounced even by long-time acquaintances and friends, I was OK with that!

Currently I live in South Carolina and in an hour I can be fishing for trout in the Blue Ridge Mountains. It is rainbow, brown, and brook trout waters that I wade in. I have a small 10 foot angler kayak that I use for small lakes around SC and have used in rivers before but really would prefer to wade and not boat. Either way I am open to any suggestions for trout fishing near or around Memphis. I prefer rivers but I am open to stillwater suggestions as well!
It's a ways from Memphis , but I hit the Caney Fork on the east side of Nashville on a trip last May and starting at the visitors center (they even have a parking lot for fishermen) with the water high but clear I was into decent size (16-18") Browns on like my second cast...when the water was down I waded a little further up stream and found great fishing by the "BOAT SLOPE" sorry can't call it a ramp as its like a 60 degree SLOPE to the water, you'd need a tracked vehicle to pull a trailer up it...but the fishing was outstanding...nymphs-dries-streamers they ate everything with gusto.

Andrew,

I live in Memphis. Check out the Mid-South Fly Fishers Club (Mid-South Fly Fishers)

It's an awesome and active club. With regards to trout. There is North Arkansas, and the Caney Fork as mentioned. Also believe it or not during the winter they stock some local ponds with trout.

Welcome to town!
