I believe it is done in the Cranberry Wilderness in West Virginia. I see horse drawn wagons pulling in a weeks supply for fishermen often.

This has been my experience. Trout will eat a freely floating cigarette butt, but won't touch a live grasshopper if it's being held detectably against the current.

Numbers

I posted a thread a few weeks back about "How'd you do." It got very little interest. This one, seems to get more. So, I'll add my $0.02. In 30+ years fishing the park, I've caught one 15-inch...

Doin' any good? ... How do you answer?

Anytime we fish and are seen by others (which isn't very often if I get my way), we invariably get asked about our success. First, how do YOU define "good" and, second, how do you respond?

When I...

Balsam Corner Creek

Anybody ever fish it? I've been tempted, but can't seem to get over passing up all the good water on the way up to it.

How about the stream it flows into up past the junction?

Btdt

Been there, done that. It is a pretty neat show if you catch it right. I usually get a campsite, hike up and fish for the day, come back to camp for dinner, then go take in the show around dark. ...

I was he. Actually, I ended up with 34. Just couldn't stop :)

I usually do well (3 - 5 per hour) on that stretch.

I spent Friday at the event. My first time at anything like this related to fishing. I needed a days rest after three days fishing earlier in the week :)

Doesn't matter

I'd take a #14 Thunderhead, but would not feel at all disadvantaged by a #12 or #14 bushy brown or gray dry fly by any name.

Nice section of water

I always like Pretty Hollow to Lost Bottom. Not the biggest fish in the park, but they're usually eager to take a fly. I caught 32 on that section one day earlier this year ;)

waist pack for big items, pockets for flies, etc.

I wear a waist pack for raingear, lunch, water filter, etc. I carry my flies, tippet, nippers, floatant, etc. in shirt pockets.

what kind of disaster?

What kind of disaster could occur if I have my rod in the sock only and have a backup rod in case I break it. The lightest tube I have weighs nearly a pound and I don't need to carry any more pounds...

just a sock

I just stick my rod in the sock that usually goes into the tube. I then stick that down one side of my pack. Tubes just weigh too much. An extra rod (in case I break it) weighs less than the tube...

color on the humpies not that important. size depends on what the fish want that day and the nature of the water I'm fishing. I do like pink wings on the thunderheads ... fish don't care and I can...

Water Levels 5/10 - 16

Heading down to the NC side of the mountains for a little R&R (read that as "fishing").

Any updates on water levels at mid-elevations?

Oconoluftee, Noland, Deep, Bradley, etc.

Thanks,

Watch for the bears at 39.

That said, I concur with staying at the front-country campground. It provides access to all the water and is usually quite and peaceful compared to most other...
