I'll second what Jim was saying...Kephart can be tough to fish...especially early in the year when the water is still cold. If it has been warm then it should fish well...focus on lower elevation streams for better hatches and larger fish... Out of curiousity, are you backpacking on Kephart? If so, then I guess you are kinda tied in to fishing it...make sure to have a good selection of nymphs and probably some Parachute Adams (#12-#14). On streams that size you will rarely want more than 3-4 feet of line out plus your leader. Good luck on the trip and I will look forward to hearing a report!
