    I've fished from the Sugarlands up to the headwater streams of the WPLP, and I have never seen or caught a brown either. I think the LR is the best place on the TN side of the park for them, and like Rog and Speckleman said, the NC side is silly with them.

    If you can stand the hike, Campsite #53 on Deep Creek is a great place to catch a slam all in one area. There's lots of browns, rainbows and brookies all within pretty close proximity to each other.

    Hey, thanks for the info on WPLP, not to mention the other advice. Deep Creek site #53 sounds like a great spot, both for a slam and to get away from the crowds...

    Chris, I just sent you an e-mail with an overview of the area. Let me know what additional questions you have...

    PeteCZ,

    Thanks for the update on the WPLP. I enjoyed your story and the Pictures. In years past this was one of my favorite places to fish. During the heat of the summer this area always had a pleasent temp.

    The areas that I always fished was above and below the Picnic Area. I just downloaded the Free GRSM Trails Map and was trying to find the Gorge and Nature Area you are talking about. Is this area above or below the Picnic Area?

    P.S
    Caught my very first Brook trout ever here.

    Mac, the Gorge is the area starting above the Chimney Tops Picnic Area then up to the confluence of Walker Camp Prong and Road Prong (The Chimney Tops Trail).

    The "nature area" I was referring to is just before the tunnel on US441 toward Newfound Gap (on the right hand side). There is a pulloff/parking area and a few pathways down to the river from there.

    The farther up you go, the more brookies you will find...
