Re: Alum Cave?
My son and I hiked the Alum Cave Trail this past weekend. We fished the Walker's Camp Prong which runs along Newfound Gap Road. We parked at the trailhead and fished up stream for about 2- 3 hours. Brookies were hitting everything we threw. Most fish were in the 8- 10" range, but man it was a blast. We would still be fishing now, but we had to meet a group to hike to LeConte Lodge for an overnight stay. Highly recommended thing to do.
On the way down the next day, we went on the Rainbow Falls Trail. Towards the bottom, my son fished for about 15 minutes while we waited for our group to catch up. He caught a fish just about on every cast. While I didn't fish that much, I really, really enjoyed watching my son catch fish with flies he tied. He's possessed! And very good! I'm amazed.
Stay away from Alum Creek and fish those others.
