Default how high is high?

My family and I will be coming out in mid june. Staying between pigeon forge and gatlinburg. When it comes to areas to fish, how high should we go? A lot probably is based how the temps are nrunning that time of year. Is between metcalf and elkmont still good that time of year? Should we go above elkmont? How about Greenbriar up Porters creek? Any and all advice will be appreciated. We hope everyone is having a good spring season of fishing and enjoying the outdoors.

In June, how high to go will be more about avoiding congestion and noise, and less about water temps.

I recommend fishing above Elkmont over fishing between Metcalf Bottoms and Elkmont.

In the Greenbrier area of the park, if you have to choose one over the other... For the better fishing ('bows/specks), I recommend Middle Prong LPR over Porters Creek. For general overall fun for the family (scenery, history) and some decent 'bow fishing, Porters Creek.

Thanks, flyguys. Sadly, at least now, we've had to cease distribution. In a a week or so I plan to have a new "Elkmont" set done. I'd like to provide you a copy. If interested cast a message at info@saintclairmapping.com .

We all do what we can, 4x. There is whole lot we can do to unlock the secrets of the Smokies, with sharing nothing approaching revealing honey holes. Thanks.
