I'm going to go fishing somewhere this evening and was wondering how the water clearity is on the LPR around Newport... I know those smallies will get back into the French Broad soon so its now or next year for me!

Well normally they stay in the LPR most of the summer depending on how far up the river your fishing... The closer to the French Broad the longer the smallies stay in the LPR

I think you are talking about the Big Pigeon River (actually technically "Big" is not an official name for the river - it's really just the "Pigeon River"). I'm assuming LPR is for Little Pigeon River. The two rivers are completely separate. The Little Pigeon runs from past Gatlinburg to where it flows into the French Broad in Sevierville (downriver from Douglas Lake).



Just wanted to clear that up...
