    For trout? Yellowstone! It cannot be beat. In the greater Yellowstone area you have amazing water, great scenery, tons of public land, and three very cool towns in Livingston, Bozeman and West Yellowstone. And it can be a plush trip with good hotels and guides or as cheap as five dollar a night Forest Service campgrounds and wading on your own. You,ll catch fish either way.

    Sorry, I had a brain fart reading the title, my bad. DOH!
    Smokeies are nice though. I've camped there a lot, but not as much fishing as my friends weren't into it. What I did do was beautiful rhodo covered creeks for small brookies at the end of a days hike. But there are others here who can hook you up.

    check out Townsend TN, a small tourist trap, some good restaurants, motels I cannot speak of but look good from the road, close to Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge if you're into that stuff. There is a nice fly shop there as well, Little River Outfitters, they can make some educated suggestions on details for your trip. I took a beginners fly fishing class there, nice people.

    Jim is correct about LRO, Its my favorite shop.

    A great base is the campground at Elkmont. If front country is what you are looking for. In my opinion, the waters around Elkmont are some of the best in the park.

    In the backcountry....there are some amazing campsites which can provide some great water.

    2 of my favorite bc sites are 21 and 24. Just above Elkmont. Great water!!!!

    21-24 occasionally has bear warnings. Just something to be aware of.

    Easy hike in. I would do it during the week though. The weekends tend to get buzy with boyscouts and the like.

    Another i like...and many think im crazy is Deep Creek via Newfound Gap Rd. Spend the first night at 53....usually take at least 3 days. This one will push you physically. Just an amazing place. I usually arrange pick up on the NC side of the park. Hiking back out up through Newfound Gap Rd is CRAZY!

    Most due this trip starting at a lower elevation in Bryson City and hike up.

    There is also nothing like an overnight on the app trail. Snowy, winter nights are hard to beat.

    Knowing nothing about this area I'm 'loving' this thread. Shot me off to Goole Map's twice already.
