All the locals say that is about as small of a brown you catch out of there but i knew they were there now to go hard after them.It was a good morning as i cuaght 17 fish 10 on the streamer.

Great report! Beautiful fish and scenery.

My goal for this summer is to explore more tailwaters and leave the mountain trout alone during the hottest parts of the summer.

Although, it's tough to justify driving 2.5 hours to the good TN/NC tailwaters when the Smith River is just an hour away.
