Two links for you. This is the USGS site for streamflows. Scroll down to Swain County and you'll see that all rivers, the Luftee included, are running almost 4 times their normal flow. http://waterdata.usgs.gov/nc/nwis/cu..._key=county_cd
The potential for more rain is in the forecast. I'd have a "Plan B" ready to go.
The other is a local fly shop in Cherokee. Give them a call. http://www.riversedgeoutfittersnc.com/Cherokee.asp
