Default Best Time To Come...

The last few times that I was able to come was in late June or early July. The water was low, and fish were skiddish. I am a teacherand out of school at the end of May.
Any input would be helpful.

being from IN myself and also a teacher!...I say spring break!!! those 2 words warm my heart . If your schedule is like mine, you get SB in late March. I've usually hit good days then. I love it because TN is about 2-3 weeks ahead of IN. And you being farther north than I am, it'd be more like a month ahead of us. And it's only a couple months away....

Default When?

Anytime you can get there is a good time. Just check with LRO and they can point you in the right direction. This last year we had more problems with high water than with low water. It just take awhile to get it all together. Tight lines.

flybum62--May and October are the two MAGICAL months, and I would rate April and June the next two preferences, perhaps along with the first half of November depending on weather.

when the trees start to leaf, about the size of a mouse ear, my favorite time for the prk.

I am with Jack. Anytime I can sneak away from school and get there is prime time.
Daniel or anyone at Little River Outfitters can giude you to catching something most of the time.

Looks like we need a educators Professional Development in Townsend sometime around spring break. I'll bring the sign in sheets.

Late April or early May is also a great time because of all the other wildlife, drive around Cade's Cove at that time and you'll see more turkeys than you can shake a flyrod at.

Seeing how I have to drive all the way to the Smokies pulling a travel trailer from New Jersey, timing is very inportant.

This coming May will be my fourth spring heading down there.

Granted I do not fish the GSMNP no where as much as these gentleman on this board, however, I have come to believe that mid-May if you have to select one or two weeks of prime fishing in the park it is the time to be there.
