In a little less than two weeks my fishing life will be put on the shelf for nearly three years as I begin working on my doctorate in occupational therapy. I've been given the nod from my wife to do a 4 day trip somewhere here in the southeast. I already live in the middle of a ton of great water but I'm looking for something different. Here's a few ideas I have, but please, help me brainstorm somewhere outside of East TN and WNC.

1. Caney Fork and Collins River- Musky, Stripers, and night fishin for browns
2. New River and James River- Smallies, Musky
3. Mossy Creek and SNP- Browns and Brookies
3. Smokies

Thanks, Knox

With a lifetime's worth of creeks I want to fish in the Smokies, that is where I would go. At least for me, a good hike in trip would have the best and most long-lasting memories. The fish are hungry enough to eat my flies, so that is also a big plus.

I would agree. Backcountry SMNP. You have the backpack camp gear, Knox. I'd pay for the shuttle and pickup across Fontana lake and hike up either Forney or Eagle Creeks for 4 days. If you need info on the backcountry campsites (milemarkers, site #'s, etc.) on either creek, PM me and I'll send info.

I'd pass on Shenandoah Nat. Park at this time. Water levels are much too low and warm for any good brookie fishing. Mossy is nice but not for a trip like this.

E Tenn has plenty of water right now.

I agree with Trout Chaser.

Since eagle and Forney were both mentioned they are pretty easy to hike into as well. Forney is probably easier to hike into than boat into. I've boated into Hazel then hiked out before. That was pretty cool. But I'm going to PM you a place I would rather go than any of the above for a trip like this. :D I'm trying to figure out how to get back in there myself.
