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 

Weather is expected to be unseasonably warm in the coming week but there are good rain chances nearly every day. With already high water, it won't take much to blow things out again.
