    Default Hypothetical question for the GSMNP natives

    Gents (and ladies):

    Just say, hypothetically, I was coming to GSMNP this weekend to, hypothetically, fish. If you were to choose three places to, hypothetically, fish, where would it be?

    Such valuable (even though hypothetical) information would be of great value from you guys who are able to fish the GSMNP often. It would help me make the most of my two days of fishing.


    "The Lord has blessed us all today. He's just been particularly good to me."

    Seriously, any guidance you can give would be greatly appreciated. My son and I will be coming this weekend to camp and fish, and I want this to be a big time for him.

    Two places that I would sudggest would be Lynn Camp Prong and West Prong. Your best bet is to stop by LRO on your way into the park and talk to them. They will know where to go.

    Depends...

    If you just want to catch fish, I would start at the first one-lane bridge above Tremont and fish all the way up to the Lynn Camp trailhead.

    If you want a Brookie, I would go above the Chimney's picnic area, find a parking lot and start fishing.

    If you want a Brown, I would go to the NC side, because I struggle to catch Browns in the Little River. It can be done, most likely around Metcalf.

    Don't doubt the green weenie. Fish it as a dropper or with an indicator. It can catch all three species.

    Good Luck! (hypothetically, that is...)

    Best advice so far, I think if the park service knew how well these worked they would ban them along with the live bait. I've seen days where I think you could catch more with a green weenie than you could with live worms.

    For catching lots of fish, any stream or portion of a stream that takes a minimum of 2 miles to hike to... Generally the larger the stream the better for size of fish. I am finding more great fishing by just pulling out a map and picking a stream and hiking.
