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 

Should be good over the next few days. Keep an eye on the skies. We've had some heavy, isolated showers many afternoons and these streams can come up in a hurry.
