    Just curious what fishing "Greenbrier" means to members. Please use the poll above.

    Thanks,

    As long as I have been fishing ... and this summer marks the golden anniversary of my first trout on a fly in Greenbrier...the term Greenbrier refers to any of the waters that are found withing the Greenbrier Cove that come to make up the Little Pigeon rive as if flows from the Park...for years I only knew that I had caught my first trout in Greenbrier and it wasn't until thirty years later that I realized that I was on Porter's Creek...even when you could drive up to the forks of Ramsey Prong we would be fishing in Greenbrier...just like fishing Elkmont could put you in Jakes Creek, Fish Camp Prong, Goshen Prong or Rough Creek...

    Rog 1, I'm with you.

    I've read/heard references to Greenbrier Creek. What do you suppose this refers to?

    Could be confusion over Little Brier Branch at Metcalf bottoms because of Little Greenbrier Road and bridge that crosses there as well as the Little Greenbrier Trial in that area? That's my best guess.

    Yes, that could be.

    Then in his book, "Hiking Great Smoky Mountains National Park" Kevin Adams makes reference to "Campsite 34 right beside Greenbrier Creek."

    I believe the little stream that flows into Hen Wallow Creek outside of Cosby is called Greenbriar Creek.
