Getting Started - Where are the different species of trout in the park

I mentioned in last week's Getting Started post that I would point out where the three different species of trout
exist in the streams of the park. I didn't give much thought as to how I would go about doing that until I sit
down to do it early this morning. Describing the various species in the many different streams in an article
wouldn't be easy to do or very interesting to read.

After scratching my head for an easy and more effective way to do that, it hit me that Mr. Fred Turner at
Smokystreams.com has done that on their website and in a quick and easy to understand format that anyone
use.

Attached is a link with a list of all the streams of any significance and a symbol for each of the three species
of trout that's in each stream. There is also a symbol for the smallmouth bass. The list of species for each
stream is at the lower part of the page.

I also highly recommend that anyone just getting started fly fishing the streams of Great Smoky Mountains
National Park purchase his highly detailed and informative maps. These are also available in digital formats.

The
streams section of this website also list  the species for each of the streams and provides a description
of each one. That information, along with the maps, should inform you as what you might expect to catch
fishing the various streams.
