    This. When there are a lot of people asking where to fish while staying in Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge/Townsend, it's hard to recommend them driving 1.5 hours away to fish the NF. Also, a lot of people that fish the NF are pretty tight lipped. And rightly so.
    My posts are worthless without pictures

    The TN side of the Smokies and the CNF are much better places to fish. No hostile hillbillies, and there are so many fish that they will often crawl out of the creek and snap at your fly while you're tying it on. The NC side is mostly a waste of time and a risk of life and virtue.

    Well then, I guess I'm heading to NC on my next trip out!
