    Default Free Campsite at Smokemont

    On July 3rd and 4th. I've paid for it, but decided to stay in a hotel due to the heat (wife would be grumpy the whole time). First person to reply to the thread that wants it, gets it.

    Hey, do I count, LOL. If it's not already taken I would love the opportunity to fish the Bradley for free that weekend.

    Thanks a bunch. Bradley Fork has been on my to do list of streams to fish this season. Last time I fished it was in October 2007 when it was just a trickle up around Cabin Flats and it wasn't worth the long walk except the nice scenery. Let me know if you want to get together to fish any that weekend. Water levels shouldn't be too high since it seems the NC side has been getting less of a deluge than the TN side.

    Neal--While you are there, give considerable thought to driving two or three miles above Kephart Prong on Hwy. 441, pulling into one of the pull-offs, and walking down to Beech Flats Prong (headwaters of Luftee). It will only be a couple hundred yards. I virtually guarantee you'll catch a nice mixture of specks and rainbows. You can fish as far as you wish and just climb back out to 441 (mostly open woods) and walk back alongside the road to your vehicle. It's a special place that is easily accessible but gets realitvley little fishing. I'm probably a fool for posting this, but all the info is in my forthcoming book and this is one of the easiest places in the Park to get back of beyond. Jim Casada

    Thanks Jim. I have fished the lower portion, I think I would enjoy the upper reaches more, especially with water levels being good for this time of year.

    Caught two real gems at the mouth of Kanati Fork in 1998. Labor Day weekend, both specs pushed 10". Another good spot is Collins Creek. For folks who are worried about giving out info, don't worry about Collins Creek. Most people will take a look at it and say, Not for me, if they just knew....

    Hans! We need to talk. You're only supposed to disclose these "secret areas" to me and your ole buddy from the Creel.
