Breathtaking video from the folks at More Than Just Parks
Here’s a great short video from the folks at Tennessee Uncharted exploring how TWRA is working to restore the Southern Appalachian brook trout in its home range in our mountain streams. This effort is completely separate from efforts inside Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
We just found this nifty video of Big Creek in the snow from the recent winter storm that stretched from the Smokies up to the Northeast. Big Creek is one of those streams that isn’t at all convenient for us to reach from Townsend which probably helps make it one of those places we really […]
Here’s an exceptional short film that shows something we’re passionate about: restoration of native Southern Appalachian brook trout here in the Smoky Mountain region. The following film shows the restoration on Sycamore Creek, a tributary of Tellico River in the Cherokee National Forest just to the south of Great Smoky Mountains National Park. You’ll learn a […]
We’re shacked up here at R&R world headquarters with the kids out of school yet again as another wintery mix of freezing rain, sleet, and rain sweeps across East Tennessee. The temperature has been dropping all day while the rivers are rising. Not a good day to really consider being out on the water, although […]
Here’s a spiffy video with stunning underwater scenes of hellbenders in their natural environment. We see one or two every year on our local streams.
Fall fishing is almost here, but so is the elk rut. Anyone who will be fly fishing over at Cataloochee or Oconaluftee this fall should probably take a quick look at this video posted by the Great Smoky Mountains Association. Honestly, it’s mostly common sense, but we’ve spent a considerable amount of time fishing around […]
We’re always fascinated by photos of the old days before the national park. This video is a collection of old photos from around Elkmont and the Little River watershed. Even when we know the exact location in the photos, like the Wonderland Hotel and the Sinks, the scenes are completely unrecognizable. Most of these scenes […]
Here’s a spiffy little video we found which features one of our favorite places in the greater Smoky Mountain region. The Bald River Gorge isn’t in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, but very close by in the neighboring Tellico Ranger District of the Cherokee National Forest. This isn’t a fly fishing video, but it will […]
