Once you get into the Pittman Center area (across 321 from the National Park), the river is stocked by Sevier County.
Cosby Creek is stocked as well, beginning immediately after it departs the national park. I have several cabins on Cosby Creek several miles downstream from the NP, and there are always plenty of nice stockers to catch.
The locals, however, fish Cosby Creek for food as much or more as for sport, so the areas that are public can get cleaned out pretty quickly.
