Re: Help with Abram's Creek GSMNP
Others have given good input already. I have fished it and can confirm that he stream bed is extremely slick. Once you wade into the horse shoe sections of the stream, you cannot get to the trail. Only choice is to go up or down the stream.
If you get injured for any reason, there is no choice but to wade it out. Best to fish it with a companion. Also try to get to the trailhead at dawn to avoid the throngs of pathetic 'car tourists'
FWIW, the stream holds some of the larger sized fish in the park.....I have never caught any (likely due to my lack of angling skills)
