Wink Best SM action for a Texan

I've been coming to the Smokies for the last four years and fishing in the park. Now I fish the Rockies and Ouachita's yearly for trout but I must say the Smokies are a bit different. The last week in Sept., however, was some of the best fishing I have had in the GSMNP.
I spent 10 days and wasn't skunked any day. The best day was Tuesday (Sept. 28. Most of you will remember a big rain on Monday and after the water cleared, I went out and just stopped on the Little River near the Elkmont area. In about a couple of hours I caught and released six rainbows in the 7-8" range and two 10" browns. All of them were in the faster water behind rocks on a #16 parachute Adams. I did have to cast several times in the same pocket to get them up. I really was surprised they came up after the rain the day before. I figured they would be feeding on the bottom, however, I noticed a good hatch coming off.
I love reading the posts here and appreciate all the info about fishing in the Smokies.

tbax46--Glad you had a good day in the splendor of an October day in the Smokies. There's no time of the year more beautiful, and as you discovered, the fishing can be most rewarding under the right conditions. Welcome.
