My buddy and I have been going on a trout trip every year for 32 years now. This year we went to Cherokee NC and I talked my younger son Logan into joining us. We had a great time!

Tuesday 3/30 - we caught around 45 with Logan having the big fish at 3.5-4# and I had a brook that went around 2
Wednesday 3/31 - rain all day, rivers/creeks were higher and dirty but we ventured out to a new creek for us and managed 7 each in a few hours
Thursday 4/1 - was better with us catching around 35-40 each
Friday 4/2 - was better yet with us easily catching over 100 plus a few big fish
Saturday 4/3 - we braved Helen GA for the tournament. It was busy, but better than the last time since they spread it out over more of the river. I fished two areas and landed around 10 fish, lost a good one, caught a 5# 13oz bow, then lost another good one. I was tied for 3rd, around 1:00, but a few more came in and knocked me out of the top 3. Ended up with a check for $50 and a t-shirt.

Here are a few pics I had on my phone, need to get some others from Logan.

Where are you fishing? I'm in Atlanta and don't fish nearly as much as I should. Got a cabin in Clayton.

Tuesday-Friday we were on the reservation in Cherokee NC. Saturday I fished in downtown Helen, my son fished north of town to avoid the tournament crowds. You should only be an hour from Cherokee from your cabin in Clayton.

Awsome. Those are some dandys. A lot bigger than the 10-12 inch brook trout we get up here in northern WI.
