Question New to Middle-Tennessee; Help please

I've recently moved to the Franklin, TN area and am unfamiliar with the waters here. I "looked over" some, such as the Harpeth and Duck, but have had no time as of yet to fish any. A friend who does not fly-fish told me the Harpeth is basically infected with snakes and to stay away. I am not interested in only trout, truly just love catching any and all. I must admit, I'm not very expierenced, so as is stated in A River Runs Through It; "anyone who does not know how to fish, would not disgrace a trout in catching it." Although I truly aspire to be a great trout fisherman, I love fishing for smallmouth, largemouth and other worthy game fish. I could use some advice on good waters in and around the middle-Tennessee area. Thanks for the advice and time, Steve

My only experiences have been on the Caney. The few times i fished was on/off.

I good friend of mine fishes the Duck. From what i understand...there is alot of good fishable water.

Also you have the Elk......That is a fairly famous tailwater also.

Sorry i could help more. If you head to the GSMNP....Give me a shout!

Good luck
