Thanks for the info MadisonBoats. The Smokys and Cherokee are a great area but the vacationeers doing their thing makes it tough at times. I am in hope of missing out on the mass rafting in Cherokee when/if I go. The Smokys are just over fished at times in some areas as well as over play time is some streams by kids of all ages too.
I will be spending most of my time in Western North Carolina and South Carolina.
But one of my normal haunts is: http://www.bassmaster.com/news/best-...-lake-st-clair
