Default this weekend - high country advice?

Hello! I'm heading down Friday evening for the LRO entomology class on Saturday. Hope to fish Saturday PM and Sunday AM. How far up to I need to be fishing to get into some "cooler" water and catch fish? Suggestions around Elkmont (my campground)?

IMO, anywhere above the campground will be fine as far as temps., the farther you walk upstream will get better, it's just a matter of how much walking you're willing to do in the heat. Jake's Creek is another option as well. Fish Camp Prong is a good option if your willing to walk around four miles.

Good luck,

I fished LR and Fish Camp a few weeks ago. Both were a little slow, but fish were caught. As Pineman said, the higher the better. # 18 para black ants worked well. Good luck.

To echo Chuckwalla... Grannyknot and I fished Little River this past Saturday. It was pretty slow. I would take a serious look at hiking on up the trail as pineman suggested or finding another stream.
