    Default Where Rivers (Creeks, Prongs, etc.) Run Through... and Beyond It

    Here is a partial list of streams that flow past the boundary of Great Smoky Mountains National Park. In addition to the waters outside the park lying within state, municipal or other jurisdictions, some are under under private ownership. Access to private property is a privilege, not a right. See very important notes on the topic "Access To Private Land For Fishing Streams and Rivers" on TWRA's web site. (Scroll down once the page opens.) Similar guidance is likely available through the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission site.
