Yes, fished the North. It was not near as cold (water) as I thought it would be. Did okay, several others had the same idea as me. Water was high, but the North is more manageable in the right sections.Did you fish? Water’s still very high around here. I spent a day down there a couple weeks back and did fine up high on the stockers in the morning but I was skunked with prejudice on the North that afternoon.
Tom Turkey has me pretty distracted right this minute but that’ll wear off in a week or two. I like fishing in the park but every now and then I like to see if my rods still bend.
Oh, hell yes!! I remember how that road used to be. It is like an interstate now compared to back in the day. But you are correct, it will shake your confidence especially when you meet up with someone coming the other way.That road will shake your confidence, your general outlook on humanity and any dental work that requires adhesives. It’s better than it used to be when it was all washboard and gravel, but still scary. I wonder what cell plan she uses because mine sure doesn’t work in there.
You are absolutely correct!!!I've kayaked the Tellico many times over the years and know it well. I've also ridden the Cherohala Challenge out of Tellico Plains on my bike. Love the area, but Tenn. out of state fishing licenses are expensive especially with the added permit for the Tellico and Citico.
License fees vary with where you fish in TN. Exactly where do you want to fish? Tellico (as you replied to this thread) or the GSMNP which you mention in your post? Tellico is in the South Cherokee National Forest, not the GSMNP. Fees vary quite a bit between the two. Licenses in the GSMNP can be either TN or NC, no matter what side you fish.Curious, how much are the licenses? My better half said lets go to Tenn or NC for vacay and I'm a midwest Fly fisher (she's spin fisher) and catching GSMNP trout is on my bucket list So Im like great idea, hon! I guess I could look that up but I need to get some posts on here.
