    I didn't realize all of this until me and my son fished with David once. My son landed a chunky rainbow with David's assistance (I believe David said it was one of the larger rainbows he'd seen...

    If you want your kids to catch fish, don't forget about Roaring Fork outside of the national Park but in the city limits. My cabin is on this stretch, it is seldom fished, and it's easy to catch...

    I think I need to clarify: Its rare that I donít catch fish in the smokies. Itís just not particularly prolific given what you have to put out. It seems weird that you are wading a 300 cfs river...

    I went with Ian Rutter a couple of times and he's really helpful, but I got more help from David Knapp than anyone. My son landed a pretty large rainbow that day and David said it was one of the...

    From where I live in the Texas panhandle, I can be on a lot of good water in about a 4 to 5 hour drive. In NM, I fish Valle Vidal, Pecos, Rio Hondo, and Cimarron Canyon pretty regularly. In CO, I...

    Not sure where you got your info, but Comanche Creek and Valle Vidal are not stocked. In 2010, there was a massive fishing derby (keep all you want!) and subsequent shocking as part of a carefully...

    We love Cosby Creek and have a lot of memories there. We prefer small stream fishing. Of course in NM or CO, a watershed such as Cosby wouldnt be considered small, and would yield pretty darn good...

    sorry guys, I was pretty negative after a couple of pretty slow days. There are definitely things I love about the Smokies over my NM and CO haunts. Number one, you can fish the Smokies pretty much...

    Fished yesterday at Elkmont with droppers. Caught one fish 6 inches long.

    All day today on Cosby creek. Between my son and I, we brought 9 to hand over 6 hours, one longer than 6 inches.

    OK another related question. Let's say you are fishing deep for a brown trout - maybe 4-5 feet below the surface. How/where do you attach that 4-5 feet as it relates to the existing leader of say...

    Guys this is great info! Thank you so much! I had no idea about cutting off the butt end of the leader but that makes sense. Thanks again.
  15. How long a leader for most Smokies streams?

    Byron had some excellent points in today's fishing report. One is, you might need a heavier (4X or 3X) leader for larger dry flies. But what is meant my larger flies? 12, 14?

    Also, what...

    Thanks Jim! So do you still go to the bottom with a standard 7.5 leader? 3X or 4X? Do you use a strike indicator? I'm still trying to figure out the setup.
  17. You guys come stay at my new fishing cabin in Gatlinburg!

    As you all might recall, I lost a cabin in the Gatlinburg fires in late 2016. I am so underwater ;) on the rebuild that I'll never come out, but I hope some of you fishers might stop in for a weekend...

    Question on fishing for browns...

    Never caught a Brown in my life so I want to try when we go to the GSMNP in two weeks.

    Questions:

    I know you want to ďgo deepĒ, but how deep? 4/5-6 feet? How do you set the rig up? Do you...
  20. You guys that fish with the pink weenie worms...

    How do you fish those, below an indicator/big fly? How far down? Do you weight the weenie?

    Thanks guys. Does anyone fish with a bamboo pole on a regular basis? Is there an advantage to them over glass or graphite?

  23. Private waters in southern Colorado

    I thought I would share this link. Due to the drought last year, the fishing in southern CO streams was pretty poor. But things are already looking up for 2019.

    Wife and I had a couple hours to kill, so it was off to Leconte to slay some specs. I just used a brown EHC and I caught 7-8 in a couple of hours, all but two fingerlings. One was a whopper - 6...
