last week = elkmont area
I was up in the elkmont area last week

and saw where the water ran through these rocks and........

I took a thunderhead and threw it in front of the far rock and watched it swirl back towards the rock and.......

caught this 10'' rainbow

The fishing was good on this particular day. *The sun came out and the dry flies were working. *I ended up catching a few more but only 1 more with any size (8'') but its great catching them no matter what the size.

LRO = thanks for the flies....and this board

Glad you had a good one. I hope to be able to fish with you next time. I know I keep saying that but things have been busy with non fishing stuff for me lately. I am trying to get out possibly this Sunday. Keep in touch and let me know when you are heading out next time.

Awesome pics!

im planning on visiting elkmont this weekend. on the trail map it shows the number .30 in green as a non-reservation campsite.
i plan on hiking there and staying overnight.

if any locals can give me any info about the hike down the little river i would much appriciate.
whats the bear activity like this time of year? as well as fishing?

any input is appriciated.

Re: last week = elkmont area
chad - Thanks for the comments. Elkmont IMO is a great place to camp, hike and fish.

For the 1st part of the trail the creek is very close to the trail. This allows you to fish a spot and then move on to the next pool and then move again.....and so on. Having the trail close by is a nice plus.

I cant give you any info on bear activity.......sorry. I did see one in the park while I was there but it was not in the elkmont area.

Good luck!

Remember to take your camera and post some pics for all of us to see.

I was at Elkmont on Friday last week and there was a sign at the trail head stating that one of the campsites was closed due to high bear activity. I am not sure what campsite was closed. I would suggest calling park headquarters before heading to Elkmont.

Re: last week = elkmont area
Like the sound of all the articles about park fishing. *Would like to ask some questions about fishing in the park and get some information from Little River.

How do you do that on this site?

Nice pictures! Normally i prefer to catch brookies or browns but, I can fish for those little Smoky Mountain rainbows and never get bored.

Re: last week = elkmont area
Amen. I enjoy catching any.......Rainbows, Brooks, or Browns.

I keep going back and reading the replies on this post and everytime I re-read and look at the pictures.......I wish I was back in the GSM and on the little river trail!!
