Man that song was spot on! Nice pics! It would be fun to fish a brookie stream that I don't have to constantly climb up, for once. Cool trip! I envy you guys that live up there. I'm a good 5hr drive from GSMNP, and with my shitty gas mileage, and gas as high as it is, it ain't cheap!
Good form Benny. I usually skip that piece of paradise coz I only fish on weekends, too many tourists. Take advantage of the fact that you live in Ashevegas you lucky muthafucker!
She's looking purdy up in them hills. Tell Transylvania I say hi. Won't see her till next spring the way work is ass raping me
I think its a tiger
Beautiful pics and fish! I love that stream and need to get back there soon. The pebble beach you show in one of the pictures used to be a huge pool a few years ago and it was always a blast to cast to the undercut bank and watch the miniature meteors flash from to bottom of the pool to smash a HE, often launching into the air. Fewer deep pools like that now.
Thanks for the TR.
As others have said, that is one of the coolest streams to fish in the southeast.I really miss going there. Can't believe you didn't see anyone else fishing.Last time I was up there on a weekend, it was like the Davidson of brook trout fishing.
very nice, well done!
Definately a unique piece of water for east side brookies. I like it. Do any of them get any size to them in that creek?
Thanks guys...this place is definitely a gem, even if the fishing is sucking. Would concur with all the comments too on the crowds although I generally luck-out hitting it up on weekdays. I still haven't had nor taken the time to fish it up to the headwaters though (or highest fishable spot), so even more for me to explore.

Last pic is definitely the largest I've seen up there. There is that pretty deep pool farther up where the stream takes a 90 degree turn to the left....wonder if there are some large ones sitting in it.
I am not a huge fan of fishing there when the tourists are out....kids throwing rocks, people watching me get stuck in the trees, etc. Always nice to have it to yourself.
I fished up there about a week ago for the first time. Definitely a neat creek. The leaves are a lot more colorful a week later. The tip tops of the ridges across in the first picture had a dusting of snow. Nice.
