Trout, reptiles and smiles

Lately the weather has been hot and so has the fishing. Our tailwaters have had great generation schedules and the freestone streams are flowing at just the right levels. The bugs are hatching, the terrestrials are out and the dry fly fishing has been great in the National Park.

While fishing in the Park we have encountered plenty of other wildlife along the sides of the streams. Just remember that even though an animal might not seem aggressive, it is still a wild animal and you should keep your distance.

  

Wading and fishing the streams of the Great Smaoky Mountains is a pretty awesome thing, especially when you catch your first fish. It almost makes you feel like a kid again, check out the smile on Jerry’s face after catching this rainbow on a yellow sally.

That’s our favorite thing.

The same ol flies are still producing fish. Yellow sallies, pheasanttails and any type of terrestrials should do the trick. Remember to stay low and where natural colors. Have a great day and be safe.
