Jim, as for point number 1 in your post, having fished the lower portions of every major drainage in the park over the last many years, I have never caught a Smallie or Redeye although the guidebooks said I should. Even on the Cataloochee, where it looks so much like the smallmouth bass streams here in central kY. Only trout and maybe minnows. Maybe the hairwing dry flies I use or are the smallmouth just not there? Not complaining because I go for the trout but I have always wondered about that. I caught a big {looked like} redhorse sucker once on a hairwing coachman so if the smallies wre there why wouldn't they hit that too? Just curious.
You can't stay dry and one temperature all your life! ROB
