Trout Fishing

I will be in Gatlinburg this weekend and would like to fish for trout. I will be fishing with an ultra light spinning rid/reel and have waders. Any advice as to where/how to fish this time of year?

Thanks in advance!

In town, the area by the aquarium has some great spots to fish but with a weekly stocking program, anywhere can be productive. Ultra light tackle - 4 lb clear line, no extra hardware such as a swivel - just a clinch knot. Worms, corn, power bait, 1/8 oz. rooster tails, trout magnets (little pink worms and small jig head) can all be effective baits. Use a small split shot 12" above the bait to get the lighter baits down in the water. If you fish in the Park, single hooks only and all artificial. Definitely more challenging to fish the Park.
