I am making a trip to the GSM in about 2 weeks for a week long trip. We are camping in Cades Cove 2 nights and then into G-burg for a few nights.

What are they hitting?

I am ready to come right now but I guess I have to wait until school is out!!

Thanks on the front end!

Nymphs on the bottom now, but that could change in two weeks...

My experience is becoming more dated by the hour, but a few weeks ago when I was up there, I caught all the brookies I could handle on dries - also in Virginia, where the water was colder. However, with the exception of a few "courtesy rises", I could catch no 'bows on top - I had to use nymphs. The brookies can handle the colder water better, and even though Lynn Camp/Middle Prong wasn't super cold, obviously the resident 'bows aren't quite in the mood to feed up top. That will probably change very soon - it looks like the weather patterns are starting to moderate, and Summer isn't too far off.
