    flyred, IMO the "plunge pool" streams are better during low water levels. Greenbriar, WPLP, Roaring Fork, even then it's best to head upstream. If I was fishing Little River I would hike several miles above the campground. Deep Creek is another option if you hike several miles above the campground. I did well there several years ago during the drought, but I was 3+ miles above the trailhead.

    Neal I'm sure you are right about other places still being good to go. I hate it that the Middle Prong of the Little Pigeon in Sevierville went offline so now you must use the TVA flows, which just gives you last reading, and no graph (what you really need to predict to hit the bubble of water for kayaking, and miss it for fishing). I guess it's better than nothing

    While unfortunately there is no direct guage on Straight Fork, you can usualy figure it out by using this guage.

    With the total cfs yesterday of whole Tremont & Little River watersheds equaled only a 1/4 of the Ocoluftee, I figured Raven's had to contribute about 20% of that which meant that Raven's had more water (Once Tremont watershed is deducted from Little reading) than the Little

    Saw lots of fisherman after hiking back on Hyatt Ridge, anyone from this fourm?

    duckypaddler,

    I need to head up to Raven and Enloe before I get much older. I'll probably end up going solo. Is Enloe as hard to fish as the Upper Greenbriar or harder, terrain wise that is?

    Thanks for all the info guys. I didn't end up going into the smokies, but fished a blue line I found instead. The water was low, but it rained a few times as I was fishing. I had by far my best small stream day!

    Enloe is much smaller than Upper Greenbrier. Not sure if you are referring to the section up to the turnaround or above to Buck Fork. If you are comfortable on Road Prong (adding the hike) you should be fine. I don't remember anything being sketchy, but I spend alot of time crawling up streams.

    If you don't want to go solo, I can always be easily talked into going up there

    just got in from the mounains. went to tremont and it was ok. caught some fish and saw several nicer trout in deeper water but due to some really rude people coming down on me and throwing rocks in my pool no hook ups. but if this water levels continue then roaring fork was also nice and these would be my suggestions by what i saw.

    Default Stream Gauges for TN

    This may not help many but it should help some that just want a quik way to check stream levels. If the update time is more than an hour that usually means there is a drastic change one way or the other in flow also if you click on a link and go inside then you can click on another to get to a graph which sometimes is helpful. But I will let you figure all that out.
