There is no better place to gather a storehouse of special moments than the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the surrounding area.

The mountain trout in the National Park waters are stream-born, wild and very determined to survive! Prohibiting bait and treble hooks levels the playing field and makes each catch a source of pride and sense of accomplishment.
In addition, Gatlinburg offers permits for “city waters” that offer opportunities to catch trout the city stocks each week. This is a great chance for young and old alike to enjoy the excitement of a “fish on”. There are even “kids only” areas designated.
