All the lovely streams and rivers in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park (GSMNP) have distinct identities and qualities that set them apart from one another. This week we fished Ravens Fork’s Trophy Section—a 2.2-mile stretch that’s home to jumbo trout measuring more than eighteen inches. Our catch included several huge rainbows tempted by cream-colored mop flies, olive Perdigons and pink Squirmy Worms. If you decide to try your luck here, please note that fishing the Trophy Waters on the Cherokee Reservation requires a $10 tribal permit and a $25 catch-and-release permit.
This weekend should be excellent for fishing with daytime highs in the mid-seventies. Be sure to pack a rain jacket and bring along your Light Cahills (#14 to #18), Midges (olive, black, grey) and Terrestrials (beetles, black ants, crickets).
