Tough day in the park
Water was on the high side at Elkmont this PM. decided to try a back up which I go to when I encounter high water. I rigged up and though the stream was awful slow. Sure enough, I was fishing behind someone. Oh well, I went to my third option. West Prong of Little Pigeon. I decided to go way down to the park boundary below park headquarters. The river was on the high side even this low. I was able to fish at a few runs and caught three small rainbows. I took the water temp and it was about 53 degrees. A beautiful day but not very productive. It looked like all the park was overrun with visitors today. I think everybody was ready for a sunny day in the park.
