    Following my Easter trip to the Smokies, I tried to add Kentucky to my list of states in which I have caught brook trout - 7 in the Appalachians and 4 in the Rockies.

    My target was Shillalah Creek, but the gazatteer and GPS did not match the roads. After driving through two "parking lots" near the visitors center, we finally found the stream. We parked in a church lot and we were asked to leave by a local before we could even step in the stream. He was nice about it and we were very respectful.

    I think we may have found the trailhead (unmarked ?) that routes you around the private property, but didn't have time to hike in.

    I will be back sometime!

    i have been to both. bad branch seems to be the best bet but no fishing. also if you parked at the church you ways along way from the fishable water. there is a trail that goes to hensley's settlement you follow it to get some altitude.

    if you want some help i will go with you but, with the ph martins fork and shillalah is probaly dead. with poor fork not far behind. poor fork has alot of garbage in it and gets really low in the summer but all three has good water temps.

    here is you another good articule on them both in bell county.

I've dabbled with trying to get some info and have come up pretty empty handed, so any info would be appreciated! Good luck on your study by the way!

    You will be far away from brook trout water at Kentucky Dam Village. If it were me I would take some bass and panfish flies and fish around Kentucky Lake, Lake Barkley or some of the small lakes at LBL.

    Swipper,

    No Brookies, but stocked rainbows are in Casey Creek near Cadiz. I have fished it once in the summer and did catch about 5 in an hour. Ususally I stay with the late fall through early spring during C&R to avoid the crowds. Also there are suppose to be some stocked streams on Fort Cambell nearby.

    KY Tim and Hoosier,

    Thanks so much for the suggestions! I'll look into both options. Can't wait to wet a line! I'll let everyone know how I did when I return!

    Default A little late, but I have ...

    8 to 10 years ago on Parched Corn Creek, down the ridge from Chimney Top road. 4-inch brookie. Why? I thought it'd be a good idea to add a Ky brookie to my list of things done. I won't do it again. Too many other things out there to do and too little time.
