Tailwater Trout on the Cumberland River with Hagan Wonn, Cumberland Troutfitters

Our destination is the Cumberland River tailwater near Jamestown, Kentucky.  Our guest is expert fly fishing guide Hagan Wonn, owner of Cumberland Troutfitters.   For many of us, Kentucky and trout fishing doesn’t exactly spring to mind … unless you’ve fished the Cumberland River below Wolf Creek dam.  Here you will find a large and uncrowded tailwater system and world-class trout fishing. 

A self-described fishing bum, Hagan grew up in Kentucky and started guiding at age 19.  Known around Lexington as the kid with “a fishing problem”, Hagan started guiding clients with an Old Town Canoe and shares some funny stories about that.  Hagan has a forestry degree from the University of Montana, where he studied and guided his way through college. He’s been fishing the Cumberland River for over 20 years now and has been featured in a number of fly fishing publications and outdoor programs.  

Bonus:  nearby Hatchery Creek, known for highly technical fishing and big fall migratory rainbows, up to 30”!
