Great tailwater, good hatches in trophy section. While the little brook trout are indeed lovely, it’s the tawny gold browns below Philpott Dam that have earned the Smith River a place on the nation’s list of well-known tailwater fisheries. For 15 miles, the chill waters issuing from the base of this 200-foot dam nurture brown and rainbow trout, providing a year-round fishery. Species: Brown, rainbow. Angling methods: spin, bait, and fly-fishing.
