We stopped by this "best kept secret" mountain trout fishing hole one day after we explored the Forbidden Caverns in east Tennessee. The small on site kitchen awaited your catch to clean, cook and serve up on one of the pondside picnic tables with your choice of fixin's. We purchased so much more than a meal that day! The fish were quick to bite the baited hooks hanging from the cane pole they provide you. The squeals of excitement pierced the air as the tug of the rainbow trout quickly became "catch of the day" aka "dinner". Their staff eagerly assisted us by scooping the flopping fish with a net when we pulled them onto the shore. They did all the hard work while we waited. The delicious plate that followed was loaded with a fresh trout, Cole slaw, French fries and the best hushpuppies/cornbread. You choose how you want it cooked, fried or blackened. We washed ours down with some good old fashion sweet tea! Beginners and experienced fishermen will appreciate the chance to fish without the necessity of patience. We were in and out, full tummy and all, in less than a hour!
