Literally hundreds of miles of trout streams course through the Smoky Mountains, offering a lifetime's worth of angling pursuits for the brown, rainbow, and brook trout that inhabit the streams. Smallmouth bass and redeye swim parts of the lower streams. Anglers can choose from roadside venues to backcountry waters, where they must hike their way in to match wits with wily trout.

Parks and OutdoorsExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • A fishing license from either North Carolina or Tennessee is valid in both states within park boundaries.
  • Fall is a great time to trout fish—the crowds are gone and the water is low, which makes getting around the streams much easier. And the fall colors add to the moment when a trout strikes your fly!
  • Streams below 3,000 feet offer bigger waters for fly fishermen, who need more room to cast. Consider using the smallest equipment you have, not only for ease of casting and travel, but for the maximum in sporting adventure.
