Back half of September, I'd try to keep as much flexibility as long as possible; weather, if no other reason (fires there?).

I waded wet one August at Cochran Shoals, back when trout fishing was still viable in August (I was a much younger man). I was the envy of my companions, but after an hour or so, I was really...

IIRC, at the Lovinggood workday Saturday, it was mentioned that the road is closed up there (campground too, I think) and that they will meet at the big parking area at the Unicoi Gap/AT crossing,...

Dave Hughes did a book on the subject. Tom Rosenbauer has a book. John Gierach did an older book on small streams intended to be more "how to," IIRC. Each of those were probably about 10 years...

Considering how the river runs, North of the lake should be downstream of the dam, on the tailwater, If that's correct, that might change the prior posts.

Since you haven't ever used felt soles, I'd probably just get a cheap pair of felt boots and check it out. I can be a hard to fit foot, and some years ago got a kit, took it and the worn out but...
