I grew up in Halls and my parents property backed up to BRC also. Used to catch lots of redeye and bluegill out of there. I now live in W Knoxville, but the family farm is still there. Haven't fished it in years, but I imagine it is still about the same. Never saw any smallies in there, I think it is a little too warm for them. Take you some bluegill poppers and some buggers if you intend to fly fish, and some beetle spins, tiny jigs, and hellgrammite patterns if you want to spin fish it.
Enjoy, and let us know how you do.
Oh yeah, and it is loaded with carp if you are into that sort of thing. Would make for an interesting fight on a fly rod with all the lay downs....
