Great fishing spot!
Avatar of justcarter

I have caught tons of different fish here, such as: Rainbow Trout, rock bass, creek chub, and my step dad even caught a small mouth bass. It’s a beautiful place where you can hike, swim and definitely fish. I recommend worms. But if you fish here, release more than you keep, please.

Trout heaven

Being from Ohio where the trout is in stocked ponds, this was a massive difference and it completely makes up for the fact that Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge are tourist trap hellscapes. However, please don’t bring any treble hook lures due to regulations. There are plenty of bait shops with the best one hook rooster tails you can get. Just throw the lures in the current and you’re in for a good fight.
