The river fished well this morning until around 9:30 a.m. when it started to slow somewhat. We caught fish the whole time until leaving around 1:30 p.m. but the best fishing was early. Most of the...

I saw a nice timber rattlesnake a couple of days ago while out fishing with 3 guys. The strange thing about this snake is that I couldn't get it to rattle! After some prodding, it finally just...

Flows are just now coming down from being up HIGH for a while so probably not too many people have been on it lately except maybe floating and throwing big baits. I saw a picture of a big brown...

That is a beautiful area to visit for sure. All of the streams over there fish well that time of year. Deep Creek always is fun and will be your closest bet in the Park. Walk up the trail a ways...

I think this I some of the best trip reports I have seen! It is always good to see kids being introduced to the sport. Hopefully you have a fishing buddy for life in the making there.

Great pictures! I've missed your reports and am glad to see a good one. It is hard to beat ants this time of year up in the mountains. Nice blog as well. Look forward to reading more on it.

Good times fishing with you Chase. Glad we found some cooperative fish. Next time we go I think I'll opt for cooler temperatures though. :eek:

I have not been recently but it will be tough with low and clear water that is probably too warm for optimal catch and release fishing unless we get some good rain before then.

Great point! I highly recommend using a thermometer this time of year and not fishing if the water temperature is more than 67-68 at the very most. Preferably more like 65 or less. Unless you are...

Smallmouth and panfish this time of year. Lots of pretty water but it is probably getting really low right now. Hoppers and poppers or small Clousers. Have not heard of any musky in there.

I'll second what Grumpy said. Best wading is definitely from the dam down to Happy. The river is definitely fishing well this year.

As far as bugs, they are not in huge numbers but there are some...

Justin, as you discovered, there are a few places in the Park where these bugs emerge in good enough numbers to get the attention of the fish. Unfortunately, if you used an imitation on the streams...

Glad someone got Travis out fishing. I've been trying to get him out on the water for a while. Give me a holler and bring him over to float the Caney sometime.

Thumbs up Little River Report [PICS]

Despite being busy with work, I've still been able to get a bit of time in to fish for myself. Over the last week, I've started to notice some indication of the summer hatches really getting into...

If you are fishing in the Smokies, Park regulations require a minimum of 12" between flies. I like to go a little longer, at least 16" or so. The last thing you need on a fishing trip is to have a...

Not sure about everyone else but for me the fish stays in the water until the camera (DSLR) is ready. Then it is lifted for no more than 10 seconds (always with wet hands) and preferably less then...

Yes. It used to have a population of brookies (northern strain fish according to Matt Kulp) but never in large numbers. It did produce some nicer sized fish but a landslide exposed the Anakeesta...

Welcome to the board! Personally, I think that 9' rods are ideal for the Park in 3-5 weights. Except on the very smallest streams, the extra reach will help you keep your line off of the water while...
