Went to above Cucumber gap and fished up to the mouth of Fish Camp Prong. I'm pretty wore out right now. It's a 7.5 mile roundtrip. I saw a yearling about half a mile below Huskey Branch.
Fishing was not bad at all. I caught and released 13 bow's and 1 brown. I lost a couple of good strikes and I had one big brown on for about a second before he went straight down under a rock. I estimated that fish to be about 14 inches. There's always next time I guess. The temp wasn't bad but I sure hope cooler nights will soon set in. I got a reading of 64 above Huskey Branch. I guess that is not too bad considering the elevation which is just above 2000ft. I passed one well known fishing guide in the area with a client. They didn't see me as I passed by. I only saw two spin fishermen on the trail and one fly fisherman besides the guide and his client. The lone fly fisherman was down at Elkmont on my way back down. I stopped and picked up a couple of bow's right at the cabins before dark. I took em' all on yellow sallies. It was a very muggy day and I can't wait until we get some colder weather.
