We just moved to TN in June. I lived in Charlotte for 20 yrs and did my mountain stream fishing in north west North Carolina for many years.

I have just started to fish the park and fished above Elkmount today, and only 1 fish that was not landed. I fished about 1 mile above the parking at Elkmount. I only used dry fly's, 14 Adams and 14 royal wolf. The water level was not bad, and temp was about 54. All in all good conditions. I did not see any fish and was very careful to stay hidden and make the good cast and drift.

Question & Help - At this time of year how far above Elkmount do you need to go to get into some fish?

Do the fish tend to move up into higher elevations during the summer?

Any insight and advice would be appreciated.
