Neal -I ran the Deep Creek trail from the campground this morning... haven't fished it since May. We've had zero rain in almost 3 weeks. All the showers went around Bryson City. Heard on the Asheville TV station at noon that the rain deficit is now equal to what it was this time last year.
All that said, the water didn't look that bad. Go at least up above the tuber put-in at Indian Creek to start. Further up the stream might even be better. Low water means very clear water too. Bring with you your absolute best stealth tactics and you should be able to catch some fish.
