So since that is what he wants to do, we will do Gatlinburg together, as I would never keep a native park fish.

    So all that being said and narrowed down, best spots recommended for in the city fishing? Hey, at least my wife and daughter will be happy that they can drop us off and pick us up.
    How about catching trout by bait fishing in G'burg and then fly fishing for trout above Sugarlands?

    Seems as if my daughter wants to learn now. Oh to be newly married and want to fish lol.

    My son in law came up with a 5 weight Sage rod. He texted me to ask if Sage rods are any good. He said he went out on the pond at his work to practice casting during lunch. I guess he may be serious after all. Maybe we will try WPLP near Chimneys after all. Who knows?

    That's a bit of a problem that your daugter wants to join in. A problem like an overcrowded church.
    You folks should have great time even if you have to settle for carryout from Smoky Mountain Trout House.
    I commend you for getting them involved. I can kinda relate.

    I got my son and daughter into the fun on trips to Elkmont, South Holston, etc. Some time later I got to introduce my daughter's husband to the sport and the Smokies. It was one memorable trip for both of us trip. See the thread
