Great Smoky Mountains - Low 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 

The good fishing of late may come to a screeching halt on Friday as a significant cold front moves in, potentially bring snow on Saturday. A steady warm-up resumes on Sunday so things should improve again early to middle of next week.
