I left late Tuesday afternoon for a getaway to the GSMNP. I had high hopes. The weather was great, the scenery even better, but the fishing was not so good. I had decided to bypass the main river (said to hold mostly rainbows and a few browns) and concentrate on two feeder prongs for brookies. Wednesday started out slow, but I caught some nice fish. Missed getting pics of most due to my clumsiness with the camera, rod, and fish juggling. I had to work for the fish. Water was high and difficult. Had a nice evening around the camp.
Thursday, I was ready for some more action. I hit the stream early and started fishing up. After a while, I began to wonder what was wrong. Very slow fishing. Caught a couple of real small ones. I was climbing up the bank to the trail to bypass a logjam when I ran into another fisherman coming down the trail. He had just fished all the water before me. Durn. High-holed. He had spooked the brookie stream. No wonder I wasn't doing so good. Oh, well.

That's the tough part of small steam fishing. One of the reasons why I rarely fish Straight Fork. Nice scenery, though, I'm sure it was good to get out.
