When I got up this morning at 3:55 AM my goal was to catch one wild trout in the Smoky's and I would be as happy as a lark. I never expected this day to turn out to be a Smoky Slam day.
IJ South it took me awhile to get to the Road Prong but thanks for the information. You are 2 for 2 on great streams so I fully expect the Straight Fork to be just as good. The RP is a wonderful stream and I can't wait to get back.
The day started at daylight and on my 1st cast into a pool I officially became a true brook fan when I saw a wild one face to face. What a gorgous fish. About an hour later I had my 1st wild rainbow and we (JoeFred and I) suddenly realized that we had to leave the Road Prong for Brown trout waters. We skipped over alot of good water to finally find the trail and headed above Elkmont campground where I caught a very nice Brown to seal the deal. I did manage to take the plunge twice into the East Prong of the Little River but it was worth it.
Below are the pictures.
