If you are not having this problem on other Park streams, then I would suspect that you are possibly getting last second refusals that look like rises. How sure are you that the fish were actually...

Felt soles are a must in my opinion if you fish waters in the Smokies and other southern Appalachian freestone streams. I like the Chota STL Plus...

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...

Haha, actually we did beat you there but dropped in as soon as we heard water and only fished maybe 1/4 to 1/3 of a mile. Of course, if I had known you guys were coming in I would have run upstream...

Wow the word gets around fast huh? For now, I'll say that I fished 4 different streams, 3 of which were new. Caught brookies on 3 out of the 4 streams and rainbows and browns on the last one. Epic...

Thumbs up Caney Fork Report

With low water finally abounding, I've been on the Caney Fork several times over the past week or so. The river is getting really low on low water, probably because the leaks from the dam are getting...

Well that was worth waiting two weeks to see. Talk about a lot of fishy goodness! I love that shot of the Superfine Glass rod with the March Brown (or is it a Light Cahill?). Glad you are getting...

Chasing the Hat Trick

The Smoky Mountain slam or hat trick of a brown, rainbow, and brook trout is a fun mission for a day of fishing in the Park. Last week, with a day free from guiding, I headed up to camp and fish on...

That looks more like one I was on last summer during a backpacking trip. Spots like that make me nervous, not from a route finding perspective, but because I can't always spot the snakes fast enough...

Post frontal fishing is usually tougher although you can usually still find a few. How were water levels over at Cosby after that front?

I was wondering why they don't just call it a trail. Probably funding or something? Next time I plan on heading higher up that drainage. The fishing was just getting better and better the farther I...

I would wonder if you were fishing behind somebody both days. The fishing was pretty decent yesterday on a couple of different streams so I'm guessing maybe you were on used water.

Moving up the stream, I continued to find perfect brook trout water that just begged to be visited by my dry fly. By the afternoon, things had picked up enough that I cut off the dropper and only...

Backcountry Brookies

With all of the attention (and pressure) that Lynn Camp has been receiving, I've been thinking about fishing for brook trout. Getting into the backcountry is usually a fantastic way to have a good...
