    Don't know about the creek you're talking about. Go to elkmont or tremont and fish up high for cooler water.

    Nothing more than a 5 weight rod.
    Yellow flies and an assortment of nymphs.
    Check out the Fishing Report for other suggestions for flies.

    that little creek is the mouth of roaring fork....it enters the little pigeon across the road from there.
    I started with nothing, and I have most of it left.

    i will give you a very specific spot (if we get some rain and the waters cool a bit). above the institute at treemont, the road has posts with numbers. at the number 1 post you will find fish. if you get thirsty, there is a spring piped from the rocks at the #4 post. it is great tasting and cool water.

    Phil,
    You're going to have a blast. The mountain streams are very special and just being on the water in such a beautiful place is something you will not soon forget. It will get under you skin and even on your way back home, you'll be planning your next trip.

    That gravel road up past Tremont is a good place to fish. Even I caught fish there earlier this summer.

    Be prepared, it is not like any water you've likely fished. The streams are not large and they have a lot of boulders and free standing rocks. Be sure to wear felt soled wading boots. Boots will help give ankle support and help keep you from turning over your ankle and ruining the fun and the felt will help on the slick rocks. All of the rocks are rounded and quite smooth so watch your footing.

    Also, some of the pools are a little deeper than they look. You will think there's no way this can be more than 6" deep until you step in and realize you're thigh deep in a pocket you thought was 6" deep.

    I didn't see any holes up there that one would float his hat but there may be some that I didn't see, but it is somewhat shocking to step off a rock into what you think is shallow water and end up thigh deep or deeper. The "or deeper" is especially exciting when you're wet wading and that cold water hits you in a critical spot

    Phil,
    There are some small bows in that creek - I'd throw anything yellow and bushy, good ol EHC is a great place to start...
    and the waters coming off above Gatlingburg area are usually seasonally cooler year round - espeacially in the summer...some of the best waters are often past up are those off of "quiet walkways" on the left hand side of the Newfound gap just above sugarland visitor center. You'd be suprised how remote you'll feel just a couple hundred feet from the busiest road in the Park....
    May you find a rise in every puddle... - WATERBORN
