New from Knoxville
I am new to fly fishing, but I took the Beginner fly fishing course at Little River Outfitters a month ago (Paula and Walter were my instructors, and they were both extremely knowledgeable and helpful).
Although I caught one Rainbow on the Middle Prong last week, yesterday (on my 6th time ever fly fishing) I finally had my first real success in the GSMNP - - which brings me to my question and the primary reason I am posting. We fished up a creek that I think was Marks Creek, but I am not sure. From the parking area at the end of the gravel road along the middle prong, it was the trail to the left, and the trail signs indicate that the trail is a nature walk only and has no particular destination (the trail is also open to horses). Does anyone know from this description whether we were on Marks Creek?
Anyway, once we got above a large cascade (maybe 30 ft.) we had a good day on this stream; I caught 8 Rainbows in about 3 hours, and I am certain I let about 5 or 6 more get away. I saw two large hornets nests on this section of stream as well.
