Hiked Little Bottoms to the intersection of Abrams on Sunday afternoon. Water temp was 74. Decided to fish the water at and below the campground late yesterday for Smallie's since I could see them busting everything in sight Sunday. I abandoned my fly rod thinking a surprise attach with spinners would cause carnage. Skunked. If I had carried my fly equip with me I would have had a very interesting evening.
On a side note I did see what had to be two huge Brown's that I spooked. As they headed quickly donwstream I made a mental note. This was right at the parking area. Perhaps I'll see them again in a month or two............Oh yeah, water temp at the campground was still 74.
