I thought this would be an interesting topic for discussion. What is your favorite time of year for fishing the Smokies? Of course, anytime is a good time for fishin', but personally, I love fishing in the fall. There is a touch of frost in the air early, giving way to a warm afternoon where all of the fish in the stream seem to be looking up. The leaves are changing colors, later on falling and piling up in the stream. The slightest breeze brings down a "hail" of acorns on the water. Besides, I seem to catch more and larger fish in the fall :P. I have yet to have a bad day fishing in the fall!
