    Default Where in August

    Coming back down in mid-August with the family. Staying on 321 outside of gatlinburg. Thinking either Cosby or Greenbriar. Wanting opinions on where to focus my efforts. What say ye?

    August is usually hot and dry....if I had to fish one of the two places you listed I would choose Greenbrier....the higher you can walk the better the fishing will be....try fishing below the Ramsey Cascade parking area...walk back down to the bridge that has water flowing under it and fish back to your car....fishing beyond the foot bridge to the Cascades will put you into a deep gorge from which you really can't climb out of...I did it one time but I was in college and much to young to know better....you can hike up to where the trail meets back to the river and fish but it is a pretty steep hike....if there has been some rain you can also drive up to the trailhead for Porter's Creek and fish in there....good luck.

    Ky Tim,

    I would second Rog 1 recommendation for the Ramsey Cascades area in Greenbriar.

    Last year during the 4th of July weekend my brother and i fished from the parking lot up to where Ramsey Prong splits with another creek that i dont remember it name. The creek seemed to lose half its size at the split and this is where we stopped fishing and hiked back down to the car. I am sure someone here will know the names at the split.

    It was really hot that time last year and wet wading this creek really felt nice.

    I will third the above. The higher the better, as always. Hopefully the rain will keep coming.

    If I understand you correctly you are asking about the right turn at the mouth of Ramsay? Actually Middle Prong continues for at least a mile and a half. I have fished up to Buck Fork a couple of times. Buck Fork comes in from the left and then Middle Prong continues for another half a mile where it meets Chapman Prong and Lost Prong.

    If you do go up high, be careful. There are several blow downs and very tough terrain up there, especially with all the dead hemlocks falling in to the creek.

    Thanks for the heads up everyone. Looks like I will be heading to the Ramsey Cascades area of Greenbriar.
