I'd like to take my young son out for a smallie float trip on the canoe. At his age he does more watching and daydreaming than fishing, but it's great to be outdoors together. We usually hit the lakes and just fish for panfish, but after reading all these threads I thought we might try the Little River, Holston, or French Broad for smallies. I've fished the Little River and the Holston for trout for years, but never for smallmouth. Never been on the French Broad. Can anyone give me recommendations on public-access put-ins and take-outs on any of those rivers that would give about a four-hour trip? That's all he can handle. My wife will be with us as well so we'll have two cars. I also have a small trolling motor if we need to fire it up through long stretches of slack water. Thanks!
