Jim, thanks for catching the Hyatt Branch miscue. I corrected to Laurel Branch
Thanks, also, for the feature ideas. At the very least, I’d plan to highlight sections of streams (not specific honey holes, of course) where the specks are now showing up. I want the maps to be somewhat real time, updated, say monthly, to reflect conditions over the last year. I would glean the latest finds and events from this great message board and other reputable sources. Other features might be bridge washouts, areas with problem bears, etc. I am considering posting a poll to see what members think. I know this type thing tends to be controversial.
Although I love the sport, I wish to rely on you and others far more knowledgeable than I as to rating the streams and for other angling insights. To that end I have created a demo Streams Index page on my site, which cites references to certain streams in Smokies books by Kirk, Jacobs, Rutter and, soon you, if you are open to that. Please take a look see.
