    Lightbulb How about stocking Hesse Creek... for the kids?

    The very lightly fished Hesse Creek drainage empties into the Little River well outside the GSMN Park downstream of Townsend. Only small stretches of the remote watershed streams hold wild trout. Just for the sake of discussion... let’s say the National Park Service would consider stocking the Hesse Creek drainage in the Park.
    What regulations could be put in place whereby young, typically impatient anglers could actually experience catching a trout? in the Smoky Mountains? where bears live ? (Obviously bait fishing should be prohibited as elsewhere).

    What access improvements could be made with minimal effect on the environment? (Park-sanctioned Jeep shuttles for example?)

    What access restrictions should be considered? (Special permit issued by shuttle operator perhaps?)
