Fishing Buddy Hook-up Thread
 
Okay, you asked for it, you got it. This is where you post to find fishing buddies in the Smokies.

Paula,

Thanks for posting this buddy hook-up sticky thread. I am sure everyone will appreciate it and give it a ton of use!

Also, for the one at Tennessee Trout Streams and Tailwaters!

My pleasure...hope everyone finds and makes new friends.

Here's my schedule! Coming down early on April 20 to Elkmont Campground. Fishing LR and smaller confluences from park boundry up. I'll be there for the two weekends that follow.

Any suggestions on streams in that area would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Cool beans!!!
 
OK, let's get this party started. I'm available to go next Monday, Tuesday, and/or Thursday (3/21, 3/22, & 3/24) and am willing to try pretty much anywhere within a reasonable hike, say 5 miles or less one way. I'm kind of old (50+) and (a little) fat, but with good knees and in reasonable physical condition (been working out regularly since Christmas). Still pretty new to fly fishing but have been studying & practicing hard and ready to get going for real. Had some success last year, but still have lots to learn. So, anybody want to go fishing with a relative newby?

whitefeather, it looks like I'll be working every weekend in April, but I might be able to shake free for a mid-week trip one of those weeks if you're here for the duration. Been wanting to explore Jake's Creek and the headwaters of LR, but haven't made it over that way yet. Mostly been fishing up Tremont & Thunderhead Prong. So, will you be here from 4/20 through 5/1? If so, I could maybe do Tuesday, 4/26.

Stana Claus,

I'll be there on Tueday, April 26 for sure and through the middle of the following week! Jakes creek and LR headwaters sounds good!

Not sure where I'll be in the campground. I have a white Sprinter TT, with multicolored horizontal pin stripes on it and will have my, and my wife's amateur radio call sign license plates (Indiana) on the front of the trailer. K9REH and KC9IPI. It will also have a tall vertical antenna on the front of it.

I'm shooting for a generator friendly spot next to the river, somewhere in sections A through F. If you like breakfast (I always eat breakfast before going out) I'll get up early and get some going, bacon and eggs, flap-jacks, hot coffee, etc. Just let me know your preference!

Tuesday, 4/26 sounds like a plan. I'll mark my calendar appropriately. And if, after you get setup in the campground, you happen to stop by LRO to check out their latest gear, fly selections, chat with the folks, etc., and happen to leave a note as to which spot you wind up in, then maybe word would get around and folks that might be looking for you would have a little bit easier time finding you. Oh, and I like my eggs scrambled. Have a safe trip down, and I'll see you next month.

You guys just have to hike up to Fish Camp Prong. Hike about a mile and a half in from the junction with LR. You won't regret it.

whitefeather 03-16-2011 07:50 PM

Stana,

Scrambled eggs coming up! I'll probably take a road trip up to LRO before the first weekend and I'll leave a message concerning my campsite!

Hans,

Thanks! We'll give it a try! I think this is going to be a lot of fun!
