Trout_14563752_ver1.0_640_480Great Smoky Mountains National Park officials announced the reopening of Lynn Camp Prong to fishing effective March 6, 2015 following a seven-year native, brook trout restoration project. The reopening of the 8.5 mile-stream sections marks the first time, since the park’s establishment in 1934, that all streams in the park are open to fishing.

“The opening of all streams in the Park to recreational fishing marks an incredible milestone for the Park and speaks to the commitment and dedication of our biologists and partners in restoring fish populations in the Smokies,” Park Superintendent Cassius Cash said.
