I'm going to take a canoe to the Nantahala River June 12 for 2 nights, and from there up to the GSMNP until June 18th.
The plan in Wesser is to Canoe the Natty during the day (dam release) and fly fish morning and evening.
Then up to Cades Cove Campground. I've never taken a canoe up to the park before, but as long as I have it with me, I may as well try a float trip.
What type of fishing and gear is recommended for Little River from Townsend to Melrose? Is that spinning gear and small mouth? Or is that still trout water? Any info on this section would be much appreciated.
Are there any other sections that are doable for a whitewater OC-2 (no more than class III water)?
If any one is interested in joining me on the Little River, feel free to send me a pm.
Thanks in advance,
