    doghair, fall fishing is one of the best times in the park. That being said, spring fishing is much better, simply because of how beautiful it is. standing in the middle of a stream when the dogwoods are in full bloom and birds are chirping, wildflowers everywhere, there is no prettier time in the mountains. period. as for the summer, technically the fishing is supposed to slow down in the hot weather, and I guess it does, but I've always had excellent fishing in summer. plus if all else fails, you can just jump in! because the days are longer, there's often time to go fishing after work. then, once it's all over with, you go home, grill a steak and drink a cold one.

    The good thing about college though...summer break starts around the first week in May.

    gosh..cant wait till college..

    Doghair:
    Yep I hit the SoHo some. I fish alot more up the road from Abingdon (SoHo Res.) Little town called Damascus (The Holy City). Few mountain streams meet at the lower end of town....nice fishing. Sometimes I go higher up the mountain (Grayson Highlands State Park) and chase brook trout and there are some less known streams up there too.

    mtn trt, college was made for fly fishing. spring break is not the best in early march, however, doghair is right on. also, living in knoxville I can visit the park every weekend and many weekdays if I want. the nice thing about college is that you get to pick your schedule. technically, you could have all your classes on MWF and fish every weekend and T/TH. or you could have all your classes early in the morning and hit the stream afterwards. of course you have to work sometime. or you could do like I did and drop out of school when you're 20, get your real estate license and pretend like you're selling houses all day when you're really just fishing, then go back to school when you're 25. I wouldn't necessarily reccomend that route though. If I was your age and just starting out, I'd probably go to Montana State in Bozeman. UT in Knoxville is a great option though with the mountains and tailwaters close by.
