The fishing was good (really) on Thursday when I arrived, but less so yesterday (Friday). I started on the Tremont gravel road, well up the hill, and caught a Brook in the first pool I fished (Prince Nymph). True; my first Brook in that stream! Just a few minutes later I caught an 11" Rainbow, an unusually big Bow up there. Then it slowed a bit, but I got ~15 fish to hand.

Yesterday was tough. I started near Metcalf Bottoms, didn't get anything to hand (missed a couple), then went back to Tremont. A crowd of photographers and fishermen was there ahead of me. Thursday I had the area almost to myself. I managed some good fish, saw plenty of wildflowers (trillium are everywhere), a few golden stoneflies, and enjoyed myself.

Yes Friday is the new weekend:frown: Peace can only be found Mon-Thur:rolleyes:.

Pretty cool catching a Brookie that low. I have heard of that happening (even as low as Walland:eek:) but have yet to experience it myself. And I only warned the Brookies above 3000 feet so I doubt he even knew you were coming.

Curious if when you were comparing Thur and Friday were you comparing late Thur with earlier Fri? I have found that especially this time of year a few hours waiting can make a big difference on larger streams.

Glad you were finally able to get down here:biggrin:

Thanks for posting

Yes, I was comparing AM vs PM (in part). I fished PM in Tremont Thursday, but only AM in Little River. I fished all day Friday (PM in Tremont), then again this morning at Tremont (slow - just 2 to hand). So I fished both AM and PM at Tremont; only AM in LR.

Headin home after a quick visit to Little River Outfitters...

I swear the GSMNP has some of the most beautiful rainbows that I've ever seen.

I caught an 11" one too, but it wasn't as pretty as these. http://www.crimsonredsports.com/Smileys/CRS/dunno.gif
