Not much of a report but I'll post. Spent last week on a family vaction camping a couple days at Elkmont and staying at a ranch in Walland, Got a chance to fish an hour at Elkmont last Monday and about 2 hours Tuesday. Thursday I got about 30 minutes on West Prong righ before that hellacious thunderstorm. I tried yellows (stimulator, palmer, and something else) without much success. Then switched to thunderhead. That worked pretty good, Fish are definitely in the faster water. Missed quite a few but landed a few as well. All rainbows. I had a pretty nice one on West Prong LR looked to be 10-11" but he managed to hook around a boulder and pulled free. My mess up there. Oh well, good time though but wished I could have fished a little more. Got the kids fishing as well. Hope to get back in the next month for a backcountry trip.
