Great Smoky Mountain National Park is a true gem.  There are over 800 miles of wild trout streams inside the borders of the park.  These waters are inhabited by brook, rainbow and brown trout.  The Brook Trout are native to the smokies and can be found in streams above 3000 feet of elevation.  The rainbow and brown trout have not been stocked since the early seventies.  The  brown trout have done exceptionally well in the smokies and there are some bruisers above twenty inches, that roam the park waters.  There is a lot of history surrounding the Smoky Mountains and it is truely a fascinating place to fish and something every fly fisherman should experience.
