I decided to try something new today since I did not have time for the drive from S.C. to Townsend to see Lefty at LRO. My Dad and I went to Bradley Fork, which we have never fished before. Got there about 9:00 a.m. It was only about 58 degree air temp, so I thought the fishing might be a little slow until it warmed up. We ended up fishing for about three hours. Had about 10 bites and landed 6. All were rainbows on the small side, biggest about 8". It was just fun to get out and experience a stream I hadn't been to before. I thought Bradley Fork was a beautiful stream, I will definitely be going back sometime. Also, we were fishing just above the Smokemont campground, I imagine the fishing would have been better had we taken the time to hike in a little ways. What did all 6 fish come on: THE GREEN WEENIE OF COURSE.
