Anyone fished them or any trout lake around. Going to fish there at the end of Aug. Looking for some tips as I'm not familiar with lake fishing for trout. Should I stay around the banks, throw streamers, dry flys?

They are stocked lakes but im sure there are plenty of holdovers and wild fish in there too.

You know of any other trout lakes in the southeast? Was thinking about this the other day. Could only come up with fontana and possibly jocasee.

i sure dont. i just wonder what some of the tactics people use for lake trout on the fly because i've never done it.
