Fishing in the Smokies

NOC is offering hike-in fishing trips in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park this summer.  Last week Fishing Programs Director, J.E.B. Hall and Fishing Guide, Cory Sutton, went out to do a little "scouting around".  Scouting is a relative term here, since both J.E.B. and Cory are Swain County natives and have fished in the Smokies all of their lives.  What they found was a stream running clear but high.  A little too high, actually.  Even with the adverse conditions they still managed to catch a couple of trout and a creek chub to boot!
