Yeah the Creeper Trail is bringing alot more attention to Damascus and surrounding communities. Talked to serveral fishermen this fall and last spring visiting the stream for the first time. But this is weird in that, I started fishing Whitetop Laural 3 or 4 yrs ago and since then Ive seen (particuarly this fall) an increase in the number and size of the native fish population. This is in the special reg. area too, they dont stock that portion. Today, in fact, I caught the first native brown trout ever on the Laural. I guess now I understand how some the local Smokies fishermen feel, but these guys here are nice. No more trash or anything like that- im always happy to see things like that!
