Default Little Smoky River

Anyone been out to LSR recently? I'm wondering about the condition of the Bigstone Road.

Was there last weekend. Road was alright. Potholes in areas and lots of traffic on it but I did see a grader. It's been raining since I was there so I can't comment on how sloppy it will be now though.

Fishing was very slow in the am, picking up around 2 pm. For some weird reason they hit your nymphs and dries when being stripped in rather than on the drift. A first for me, but we were into well over 80 fish in the afternoon so you can't argue with success.

Yeah, a great time of year for them. I imagine I will have a pretty sloppy truck when I leave there. Thanks
