Fishing near Gatlinburg?

Can anyone advise on the availability of fishing in/near Gatlinburg? We are staying at Cobbly Nob; a river/stream/lake anywhere near? How much are fishing licenses? Thanks!

Don't know the cost of fishing license, but they can be purchased at Wal-Mart or Bass Pro Shop or any place that sells fishing gear in the area, I think.

What kind of fish are you looking for? There's "catch and release" fishing in the national park where lots of brook trout can be found. I'm sure there's also plenty of varieity at Douglas Lake, but I don't know if you want to eat those or not (too polluted).
