Default Labor Day Weekend in the Park

I took a couple of days and camped at Elkmont Friday and Saturday night. We had a heck of a storm on Saturday night. I managed to fish a few hours below Elkmont at one of my favorite stretches of the river. The water was very, very low. I knew it would be low but I didn't expect it to be as low as it was, even with the summer we had. The fish are still biting but I didn't see any nice fish. They were all in the 6-10" range. I know that is typical but I usually get a couple of 12" fish in that stretch and see at least one bigger than 12" but I didn't on this trip. It was nice to get out in the park and you can still catch fish but the population seemed low and I think many of the larger fish may have died. At least that's my theory.
