Default Fishing Requirements in Smoky Mtn Ntn Park

Hi All,

My wife and I went down to the SMNP in May 2010 and fell in love with the area; minus the Gatlinburg strip We are headed down there again in late June 2011 this time with her family. Her family and I are outdoor enthusiasts, we all enjoy fishing. However, most of us have never fly fished.

I know we will need Non-Resident Licenses, but, we are completely a catch and release family. In Illinois they stock trout in some lakes, however, a trout stamp is only required if you plan on keeping the trout you catch. Since you never really know what will strike at the lure. Is it the same in SMNP or is a trout stamp required no matter what?

For those of you that are regulars that fly fish in the Smokys what length rod would you recommend?
