    Default Brookies on the mind!

    All this talk among everyone about taking a shot at the brookies has got me itchin to try it out for myself. It would be my first attempt, and I am not really sure where to go? I don't want to make a huge mistake and get on a closed stream or anything like that, I have a few books that mention what is closed, but they seem a little outdated, does anyone know where I can find an updated list? My dad is coming up and will be fishing with me as well, so a hike in would be fine, since I wont be alone. Any suggestions out there?
    ~If our father had had his say, nobody who did not know how to catch a fish would be allowed to disgrace a fish by catching him.~

    Upper Greenbriar, Upper West Prong of Little P above picnic area, Cosby Creek, basically any stream above 2500 ft. As of now there are no closed streams besides Indian Flats, Sam's Creek and one in NC which I can't remember the name of, Bear Creek maybe

    I would second Hans' list, and add one more to it; Straight Fork over on the N.C. side. Get on Big Cove road on the reservation, drive past the fish hatchery and into the park, and continue on the road until you reach the bridge (about 5-6 miles). While I've caught brookies downstream of the bridge, I can almost guarantee you will get brookies above it - that is all I've caught from that point upstream, with the exception of one small rainbow.

    I got my slam in one day back in June on Straight Fork; in fact, I've caught more browns there than 'bows - that might be a product of the fact that I got started on this trout addiction with brookies up in Virginia, and both brookies and browns tend to hang in the slower water, while bows hang out in the rougher stuff.
