    Default Stocker?

    http://

    Caught these out of WPLP. Is it stocked behind Sugarlands Visitor Center? I thought that was park area and was patting myself on the back. Then I thought, stocker? Well, whatever, tasted great!

    No trout are stocked within the Park but that is one of the places in the Park where stockers are frequently seen and caught as they run upstream from outside of the Park. Nice catch regardless!!!

    I don't live just to fish, but I want to fish just as long as I live.

    Must be a stocker. Looked at the clipped fim

    Nice catch, and be thankful since you got twice the satisfaction (Catching and eating)

    Keep the posts coming

    Default Could be...

    I had lunch Thursday with Greg Ward in Chinese dive in Sevierville that wafted with the aroma of sauté dog. Any who, he told me about him releasing a few thousand big trout in Gatlinburg prior his annual tournament there last weekend. He told me that the winning weight of the two-day event was over 50 pounds of trout. I suspect that the lovely creature you fried up golden brown was one of his releases.

    Greg will be launching his UT Field School in the GSMNP next month. I wish him well in that new chapter of this fly fishing career.

    Once they get to swimming in oil vs. water, it probably doesn't matter. Eat 'em up!
