South Cherokee NF has some campgrounds closed, the roadways are open. There are bear hunts starting Saturday that will run through the next couple weeks.
The fishing in Tellico River is open 7 days as the stocking days are over and they are on the catch and release portion of the delayed harvest schedule.
Remember, the bear hunts are going on and you may want to wear some visible blaze orange. I'll be out there hunting this weekend, so if you see a guy in an orange vest and an orange hat, stop and introduce yourself.
