My family has recently purchased a camper and now we are looking for campgrounds on or near rivers with good smallmouth fishing. Even if you don't kow about a campground, could some of you guys list a few decent smally rivers for me, I sure would appreciate it.

We already fish the little pigeon, and of course the little river, but I kow there have to be some more good one around. Anywhere from say Nashville east to North carolina is kind of in the range we're looking for. Anyways, Thanks alot!

There is a nice campground below Douglas Dam on the French Broad which has good fishing.

Nolichucky, Little River, Emory, Obed, Clear Creek, Big South Fork, Collins, Tellico, will get you started. When you have learned those come back and I will give you some others.:biggrin:

Any time you come west to Indiana I'll take you to a "blue ribbon" smallie stream. Sugar Creek, I've had days this year with 30-40 fish, including 3 that went 20"'s!!! Most were between 12-17"'s.
