Default Re: fishin the Elk

I usually fish the Elk two or three times a year, but I prefer to head up to the mountains or to the Hiwassee if I have the time at all. I'm a wader and wading access isn't great on the Elk. Every time I've fished near the dam, it's been crowded. My usual spot is the Farris Creek Bridge access. Nice long wadeable spot especially if not many others are fishing there. I've had good luck on small nymphs there, but the fish can get really picky about what they want. I saw a brown that appeared to be around 4 or 5 lbs there last time. Couldn't get him to bite and only succeeded in spooking him. I would like to take a canoe sometime as that would open up much more water.
