Let me start off my saying we absolutely loved our first visit to the park. It’s truly a National Treasure.
We’ll be making our 2nd visit to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park the 2nd week of September and I’m already thinking about what flies to tie for our three days of fishing. After doing a little research I found this hatch chart and I was wondering what the experts thought of its recommendations for September. We are staying about 8 miles east of Gatlinburg and we mostly fished the Middle Prong up the Greenbrier entrance last March. We’re thinking about fishing Greenbrier entrance and Cosby Creek for this trip. While my wife is not a real big fan of long hikes, she’s not afraid to get out of the truck either. However, for this short trip we wouldn’t mind limiting our hikes to the stream to about a mile round trip. How is fishing in Cosby Creek and the Greenbrier entrance in September? What do you think of this hatch chart? Would we be better off fishing elsewhere? Sorry for all the newbie questions; thanks for any advice.
