Anyone else seeing Large Brook Trout in the GSMNP? I have only caught one over the years. Last trip we caught two about15/16"'s. Elevation was about 2800'and several miles deep into the park. They were delicious.

Not very often. They stock them by the droves in the lower ends of some of the park waters outside the GSMNP boundary, though, so they will sometimes head upstream.

I've caught a good many from the lower quarter mile of Deep Creek through the campground just above the park line.

They run a pretty good ways up the Luftee too, sometimes.
