Re: winter trout fishing
I just got back yesterday from my trip to the smokies. I am new to trout fishing on the fly rod but I had an awesome time. I had the best luck up by Tremont. The local guys were saying that the Oconuluftee is hitting really well right now and there are some big browns in there. I didn't have any luck on it, but again I am learning and was by myself.
My first fish was a big rainbow that was close to 12". That was bigger than anything I expected. I didn't catch a lot but loved the trip. And I love the Smokies.

Where in Iowa is this driftless area? My parents moved to Des Moines and if that is close it could make trips out there even more appealing.
