Pearson Springs Park?
I'm assuming that you meant Pistol Creek which runs through Pearson Springs Park in Maryville (off of Montvale Stations Rd).
A certain fly fishing former football coach that lives upstream of the park on that stream actually used to stock his section of the stream with a dozen or more 12"-14" trout every year (at least up until 2004 - not sure if he still does). I was at his house one day when he was feeding them and when I asked him if he ever tried fishing for them, he smiled and said "I fish the h*ll out of 'em"...

I live about 5 mins walking distance from the stream and man I wish it had trout.....Although I would probably never get any work done...
