Re: What size tippet and leader should I use to trout fish in the Smokies?
I know this is a bit late, but still good info.
The area road/stream that runs from Gatilburg and PF is called the Spur.
About a year ago the sewage treatment plane in Gburg collapsed and sent over a million gallons of the brown stuff downstream. It has cleaned up a little.
It was an area i fished in the dead cold of winter....for trout.
Closer to P/F and through sevierville..its also a great smallie fishery.
