This really has nothing to do with fishing this time, but I happened to be up there the other day on my way from Gatlinburg to Cades Cove and swung by the Y to see how the water was (it's really, really low just like you said, but when you see it...). Anyway, I noticed a sign up on the rocks that jumping and diving was prohibited. As long as I have been going up there, this has been a tradition- jumping and swimming from the rock wall at the Y, my other one is spending a couple of days fishing!!! So, my question is this, did someone have a terrible accident and now it is this a new policy by the Park Service to cover their fannies in case someone ends up really messed up, thus our tradition is over forever? Or, and I hope it's this one, is it due to the low level of the water back in the fall and the sign will come down when we get some more rain. I have always enjoyed swimming and jumping at the Y, and sure would hate to see it taken away. I'm interested to know the story on this. Thanks.
