Did you know the Great Smoky Mountains National Park has almost twice as many visitors as the Grand Canyon? The Smokys have it all - home to old growth forests, one of the largest protected areas of black bears, and slap-yo-mama beautiful Brook trout. String ya up a size 22 BWO and trek through some of the most rugged terrain the Apps have to offer for a backcountry Brook trout experience. The reward will be well worth it - the big man upstairs took his time when he was painting these suckers up. They’re prettier than any Lourve nonsense. But make sure to be careful! Brook trout were almost decimated in the park, and fishing was closed for over 3 decades. Leave no trace, keep ‘em wet!
