Its very low and the fishing is not what you would call prime. If you decide to fish it, fish its upper section and DH or its tibutaries North, sycamore,and bald. On the Tellico i would fish a #12-14 copper john w/ dropper in the 16-20 range. The tribs are fishing a bit better so i would use a 14-16 PA w/ an un weighted nymph or soft hackel in 18-20. best of luck.
