On most of your maps you have the grey areas as "Fish not likely present", but on your Deep creek map the grey area says "No Trout/Fish"

So my questions are is there a difference between these 2, or am I trying to split too many hairs:rolleyes:

Second, I see you say this data was collected by Park Data and other sources, which I'm guessing are reliable fisherman. Do you think this info is pretty conclusive, or just the best of what's out there info wise? The reason I'm asking is many of the streams that are a high priority on my "must fish " list seem to be greyed out. I would think with many of these in remote locations, I doubt the park could have data on it all, but am a little more apprehensive to try it out now that I have your maps.

The Big Creek and Cataloochee maps look great and I'll need to get them since my complete set is no longer complete:biggrin:

And sorry if I am hijacking your thread

I would like to know as well. I just got back from #23 and I caught a brown and a brook in places your map said they were not supposed to be. Is the map just giving the "dominant" species of the area?

Good questions, men. Thanks. As you have rightly observed, I have been changing things up... yet again.
