Great Smoky Mountains - High Elevation

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Approach & presentation is the name of the game here. These fish don't often get overly selective on fly patterns, but they spook easily and won't tolerate a bad drift!

Fish upstream, dress in earth-tone clothing, and keep a low profile. Stay back and make longer casts in slow pools. Get closer and keep as much line off the water when fishing pocket water.

Seven-day forecast 

More rain is expected in the coming week along with colder temperatures. The fires are expected to be 100% contained by 12/20 but no word on when impacted roads and trails will re-open.
