Default Re: Deep Creek

Red Owl...... I started backpacking and fishing Deep Creek in 1959.... I've been from one end to the other and I've fished just about every feeder stream up there...... including the left hand fork almost to its springhead.... gets a bit small above Keg Drive Branch....

BEST thing for you to do is get a copy the the National Geograpic "Great Smoky Mountains" illustrated trail map...you can, I'm sure, find it online at several sources...this map is a great source of information about camp sites, milages, almost anything you need to know about both N.C. and Tenn.
I've fished it numerous time in the years gone by when I wouldn't see another sole for several day on end....unfortunately times have changed...
another great source of information is found in books written by Jim Casada he also spent alot of his youth on Deep Creek....
Best of luck to you....its a beautiful place
