New "Perfect Fly" Stream Guide on the Tellico River, Tennessee

When many anglers think of the Tellico River, they think of a "put and take" trout
stream that is heavily stocked. They also think of the special daily "Tellico/Citico"
permit required to fish it. Unless they are fishing for dinner, they turn it down as a
choice destination for many other streams in the area.

What they are overlooking is the North River, Bald River and Sycamore Creek
tributaries that all have
wild brown and rainbow trout as well as native brook
Many anglers consider the Bald River to be one of the best wild brown trout
streams in that area of Tennessee. They may also be overlooking the fact that the
main stem of the Tellico River has some huge holdover trout and some large wild
trout in addition to those stocked by the state. The stockers usually get caught fairly

You don't have much to worry about when it comes to having a secluded place to
fish. Just fish the lower gorge of Bald River and most likely, you will have it and its
many wild brown trout to yourself.

If you want to hook a large brown trout in a very small stream, the North River will
give you that opportunity. It's amazing at the size of some of the brown trout in that
little stream. Some of the locals that have long known what I just revealed may not
be to happy with the "new information era" but I can't think of a good excuse for
allowing them to "hog" these two fine tributaries of the Tellico River.

One more thing: I don't know of a better time to catch one of the Tellico River's, or
its tributaries, brown trout than right now. Conditions are excellent. Of course,
conditions are also excellent for catching trout in Great Smoky Mountains National
Park and get this...........on a dry fly. There's few places in the United States that you
can pull that off in late November.
