I think the black bears in the smokies are opportunistic feeders. I have never seen one but I am quite sure they will eat dead fish if they happen upon one. I don't think the bears in the smokies actively try and catch fish. However as with anything there are probably cases perhaps with a fish trapped in a small pool without a means to escape so a bear that finds this may take advantage of the situation but I think that would be a rare situation and not common behavior. Not a bear expert though just read a little here and there maybe someone else knows for sure.
