It’s That Time of Year in the Smokies

It’s that time of year in the Smokies and we’re finally starting to see some spawning brown trout in our local streams. It’s likely that the sudden cold snap and melting snow that dropped water temperatures better than 15 degrees in about 24 hours caused a delay.


It’s hard to tell from this since there isn’t much for scale, but both of these fish are well in excess of 20″. It’s not everyday you see fish like these in the wild streams of the Smokies and even rarer when they’re so visible.

Take you polarized glasses and head for the nearest stream with brown trout near you.
