Re: winter trout fishing
thanks, im looking very forward to the trip to the smokey mountains!
i would fish nymphs in the deeper pools, i had best success with the simple patterns. brassies and hares ears and pink squirrels are basically what i threw. while i only fished a few streams they were both great and made every bit of the trip worth it. i think water temps will play the most important factor.
i stayed in the decorah area
