Trout Fly Fishing in the Smoky Mountains Should Be on Your Vacation To-Do List

Another reason to not put that fishing gear away early is trout fly fishing in the Smoky Mountains.

Watch as this guide team does some fly fishing for trout in the Smoky mountains. The Smokies have 1000s of miles of crystal clear mountain streams that have abundant populations of brown and rainbow trout and the fall is the time for some dry fly fishing at its best.

There is some challenging trout fishing at its best. With lower water levels by fall it provides the perfect, and sometimes only, real good opportunity to see-and-stalk large trout. This couple was able to hook into some fantastic fish after keeping a low profile and presenting a good dry fly. Nymphing is also a great technique for this time of year and for getting into those small pools.

Don’t be too quick to put away that fly fishing gear and take advantage of those cooler fall days to hook a trout that is showing its full spectacular fall colors. For quality fly fishing gear to get you out on stream and river be sure to check out ORVIS.
