You will be fine... we go every year the end of March and the bugs are already out. Fishing the North and other rivers in that area is a lot of fun! There is good water just about everywhere and plenty of it. Just like the park, finding bigger fish is the challenge but they are there. You are going to have a beautiful stretch of water right there by the cabin which holds some good fish without even having to drive anywhere...
Just remember that if you decide to go down on the Tellico and fish for those big stockers, you do need to purchase a separate permit.
