Just an interesting note there are several ponds in the park although I don't think any have fish. There is a very big pond (almost a small lake) called Gourley pond in Cades cove only about 100 yards from the road but it might as well be a mile cause you can't see it at all from the road and would never know it was there. It is between Rowan and Sea branches. It is shown on some topo maps but not others. It's on the 1931 map I am pretty sure. Here are some pics I took last year after bushwhacking to it. Like I said no trout cause it's a stagnant old cow pond left over from a farm long gone but still kind of interesting especially sitting there on the banks of such a big pond so close to thousands of people driving by who didn't know it was there:
