Took my sister up to Tremont to start where Big Popper and I left off last time. Missed a couple of rises and proceeded up the mountain in my gray Range Rover (wife's corrolla). Stopped at a run and caught three in one run, my sister continued to get refusals in part because her drift is still weak at times and others because she is spooking the runs in various ways. Proceeded up the road further and waved hello to one guy crouched down behind a rock stalking a hole. Fished the last run of the day (we only fished three hours) and caught the biggest of the day and maybe the biggest I have got to hand in the mountains. I think he was around 12 inches (give or take) which probably makes him around 10". I will post pics later when I get home...headed back up for now with my sister and niece.

I had just used a pine tree to swing around a rock without falling in the water...rubbed my eyes just before this fish rose and took my fly...must have gotten my hands into some sap because boy my eyes were burning! He gave quite a fight in that fast mountain water.

None of the other fish were anything special. Had a great time fishing today with my niece and sister though. All in all a good couple of days fishing.

Nice trip report! Glad you got into some trout in the Smokies. With more practice your sister will be slaying em too. Too bad you got the pine sap in your eyes. O.o
Maybe I can get up there with you sometime this fall.

BlueRaiderFan, are you on the Suk? I thought this report looked familiar. My intro is still up if you hurry, under mrl0004.
