Saturday in the smokeys
Started out above alum cave parking lot saturday around 10, and was really suprised how hard it fished! I caught fish, most of which came on a size 18 parachute olive, but I sure didnt catch fish from every hole like you can on some days. Only one fish up there was brookie... It seems to me that Im catchin less and less brook trout up there. Any one else notice this or is it just me?
Went to the Little below the turn off for Elkmont around 1:30. I seemed to catch fish from everywhere! All the shallow riffles held fish, and most of them held quite a few. I caught 4 from one little run barely over ankle deep! No big ones, but I did complete the slam in that stretch, which is always great. The fished just seemed especially eager to anything that came by, especially my strike indicator!
