I am in central FL. I've been to the Smokies a lot but never to fish. I want to do a trip where I fish a different stream each day. I plan to camp and not move camp any more than necessary so I can spend more time fishing. The trip will be about a week but I can add a day if needed.
I've thought up various plans.
1. Middle Prong- Little River, TN, camp near there the day I arrive and stay there the next day when I fish.
2. Then break camp and move over to Smokemont to camp and fish Lufte and/or Raven's Fork, maybe Forney Creek.
3. Stay at Smokemount and drive pre-dawn to Nantahla and fish til the tubes show up and break for lunch and go to snowbird til dark and then drive back to camp at smokemount.
4. Drive to Davidson and either camp there or stay at smokemount. I'm not sure how long the drive would take?
5. I'm interested in Wilson's Creek but I think the drive is too far.
6. Are there any areas in the Cherokee Reservation worth fishing?
Is this schedule realistic or flawed? Are there better streams. I like to cast. Some tiny brook trout streams that you have to dap- I'd rather be in an area that has more room.
I can hike in from a 1/2 to a full mile if it results in less crowds.
Any suggestions appreciated. I was thinking mid May to the end of May unless another time is better.
