if you've read any of my recent posts, i'm new to trout fishing. i've been fly fishing for many years, but not for trout, and now i live here in townsend. I'm available to fish mon, tues, or wed, and if any of you are free to fish and would like to buddy up, make new friends, do some fishing, etc, i'd welcome the opportunity to buddy up! can meet anywhere you like (you probably know better than i where to fish!), i've been told greenbriar, sugarlands area, and WPLP should be good choices right now, but if you have another area in mind, that's great too! anyone wanna go fishing?

I would love to go fishing with you, wizard, but I've got budget hearings coming up over the next couple of weeks at work and won't be able to shake loose until closer towards the end of the month. I'll probably drop you a line once I see what my schedule will be later on and we can plan on an early week trip somewhere. Looking forward to meeting up with you.

Hey Wizard; wouldn't mind doing some fishing with you, moved here from Maine last summer.

As I'm virtually computer illiterate and don't know how to message here....

My Cell 865-255-4840

For that matter anyone else wants to give me a call (even to B-tch me out) feel free!

Been wanting to talk to PINEMAN19 Neal since I met him briefly last summer.

Wizard, I will likely fish the park this Wednesday. I'll make sure that the weather and my schedule allow. I'll post on here when I'm sure and you can shoot me an email.

corbo, i'll get in touch with you today. my cell is (843)813-8883 so you know who's calling from a strange area code lol... the weather today is supposed to get nasty in the smokies and here in townsend; so tommorrow the water will llikely be up and muddy, so wed. is probably the better day (In my rookie opinion?). Grouse, let me know if you're going to be making it to the park as well; you've got my cell now too or drop a line on here

Little River is running at about 1,000 CFS right now. Median flow is a little more than 300 CFS. It should drop a bunch more over night. I'm going to take a wait and see approach and will make a decision later tonight or tomorrow morning.

It looks like LR is around 700 CFS this morning. I may wait till after lunch. I'd love to try and meet up some other time. Wizard, feel free to shoot me an email. I am usually free on Wednesdays.

yeah it's still a little high and moving kinda fast out in front of the house; unfortunately i can't fish tommorrow or friday, and afternoons aren't good because my kids get off the bus at 3. i'm gonna roll the dice; i'm gonna take a trek either up tremont, or take bote mountain trail to the WP, and see what it looks like up there

Let's make this an official buddy up thread!:biggrin:

I'll be down in a couple weeks. I always hit the park as much as I can the week of my Spring break. If you, wizard, or anyone else who's around I'll gladly stop when I see you and chat or vice versa. I like to meet new people and put faces to screen names.

Shoot me an email anytime. I'll be MIA for a few days later in the month but I'll be whooping them the rest if the time.

It is a bummer that this forum doesn't seem to have a "personal or private messaging" function for folks wanting to hook up (pun intended).

Perhaps a "sub-forum" could be created where folks could post when & where they would like to fish and who might be interested in joining them?

With the fuel expense a run to the SOHO from Seymour is costly... splitting the gas takes the sting out of a good time.

Corbo,

That's a great idea, man!

Maybe we could have Paula creat a "sticky" thread at the top of the "Smoky Mountain Fishing" forum and some of the other forums like "Tennessee Trout Streams and Tailwaters". That way anyone could go right into the thread at the top and check it out to see who's going fishing, where and when.

Everyone,

I emailed Paula with a request for a "sticky thread" at the top of the "Smoky Mountain Fishing" forum and "Tennessee Trout Streams and Tailwaters" forum.

I'll let you know when I get a reply.

Hey wizard (or any of you other guys), still want to go fishing? I can finally see the light at the end of the budget process tunnel and am planning to take the week off next week. I've got to make a run to Nashville on Wednesday, and my son and I have a trip planned for Friday, but the rest of the week is wide open and the weather forecasts are looking good. I'm up for pretty much anywhere (short of a 10 mile hike) in the park, or maybe even over around Tellico (North River, Bald River, some of the smaller tribs, whatever). I'm pretty flexible and just want to get out on the water. Let me know what works for you and we'll try to get together.
