Default I need to catch some Smallmouth

OK, so it is time to leave the trout alone to fight their own battles and I want to try my luck at fly fishing for Smallmouth Bass. The question is, if I can only pick one place within about a 45 minute drive from Maryville TN that is easily wadeable, where I should I go, and how do I get there?

Thanks

I don't know much about smallmouth, but due to the current circumstances I have been trying to learn quickly. The best place that I have found for wading, which is probably not the best around, has been the holston. You can find gaps in the generation to get on at nance's ferry and clift rd. I caught 6 yesterday and my friend from bama who never fishes caught two. We were working both poppers and streamers around the swift current that goes by the weed beds. Lots of fun and a couple of pound and a half fish. I hope this helps.

I have a question about the Holston. Are there smallies as far down as where i-40 crosses over. That would be a fairly short drive and may have some wading possibilities if you know some land owners. Does anyone know? If you do I would be happy to take someone with me.

You can also go to Sevierville and fish the river that runs to the French. I'm not sure where the access points are but have heard of some good fishing. That is within a 45 minute drive if you are not going on busy tourist days. I have driven through Seymour on Boyds Creek Road to get there.
