From the Back Cover

The revised and updated edition of Smoky Mountains Trout fishing Guide covers all fishable streams within the boundaries of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. This guide takes the guesswork out of both the geography and the fishing in the beautiful Smoky Mountains. This book is designed to help both experienced and novice anglers select waters that suit their tastes and abilities. You'll find a chapter on each of the major streams in the Park. Listed with each stream is such valuable data as its location, fishing pressure, species of trout found in that particular watershed, both auto and trail access routes, campsite accommodations, and other information. Also included are chapters covering the early history of trout fishing in the Park, information on the aquatic insects that are most abundant in the streams, proven dry and wet nymph patterns, tips on gear, spinner fishing, etc. (6 x 9, 260 pages, b&w photos, charts)

This is an excellent book for the angler visiting the Smoky Mountains. This book lists all the streams in the area with the following information: type of fish, size of fish, size of stream, location and fishing pressure. If one wants to beat the crowds without shelling out the cash for a guide, by this book and a map and you are set.

This is an excellent book. It is very well written and informative, too. I have fished several of the streams in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park and it has helped me immensely. I can tell that Don Kirk is an accomplished fisherman, a lot of the authors only fish with their typewriter. He has made locating streams easier and offers very good advice on how to fish them. I would have to say that this is the best trout fishing book I have ever read and I have read many of them.

This is one of the best books on Trout fishing the Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee and North Carolina. It is informative, well-written, and intersting. This is one of the best books I have ever read on Trout Fishing, period...

I bought this book several years ago. While pretty good back then, I now feel it is outdated after re-reading it last month. I feel that for the money you are much better off buying Ian Rutter's GSMNP book. Ian's is also this same size, so you can pack it in your backpack, but much more updated, detailed, and geared to the fly fisher. In fact Ian is an awesome guide as well. No offense to Mr. Kirk, whose book gave me lots of info 15 years ago as I planned trips in college.
