    Default Brown Trout at high elevation

    I was just curious to find out how high up anyone have caught a Brown Trout. I caught one today at an approximate elevation at 3250 ft.

    Hey buckeyetrouter!

    I guess you are referring to Jake's Creek. It should be in the vicinity of 2800 ft. I believe Elkmont trailhead is at 2500 ft.

    Hans, I think you were with me when i caught one out of Goshen Prong. I don't think it is 3250 ft. But it's pretty high.

    Russ!

    I believe we were on Goshen prong trail which follows Fish Camp Prong. The mouth of Fish Camp Prong is at about 2850ft at the mouth. I have never fished with you at Goshen. Maybe you are confusing Fish Camp with Goshen. It is confusing because the trail at the mouth of Fish Camp is Goshen Prong Trail.

    Two years ago, I was fishing the stretch (early Oct.)where Little River trail crosses with the wooden bridge above Elkmont. I had a 30+ fish day with more than a 1/3 being browns.Until the past few years, I've never caught a Brown above Elkmont, but now it seems they are becoming more common. Have any of you seen the same pattern? :-/ Two years ago, I spooked a nice hen brown (16-20 inch range) on a redd up a ways

    I've caught them pretty high on the NC side of the park. I looked at a map and it was somewhere around 3000 ft, possibly a bit higher.
