Default hazel creek

Many years ago,in the early 80's,I fished Hazel Creek.Got to it by crossing Fontana.My sister fished it last year ,I think,she hiked to it from a trail starting at Clingman's DomeHas anyone fished Hazel lately?How is it holding up,what with increased hikers,fisherman,and litterers.I thought the fish in Hazel tended to be a bit larger than those on the other side of the park and nymphs seemed to work best.
The actor James Stewart loved the Fontana area,so much that he wrote a poem about it,which he read on the Tonight show several years ago--
Lake Fontana is an emerald Lake deep in the Smokies
It's surface is smooth as glass
But getting to Lake Fontana is a royal pain-in-the-***
--That goes for Hazel Creek too--
