I had a great time fishing below the dam for white bass during the summer.  Small white spinners and flukes or spoons or white grubs for consistent action.  You'll get some bonus other fish in there too.  The Little Pigeon River  through PF also fishes great for smallmouth for numbers. Find a bridge and work from there.  I used Powerworm trick worms weightless on spinning gear with a gold aberdeen hook, texas rigged, weightless, just drifted and twitched with the current. ALot of fun and it's mostly pretty shallow so you can wde in an old pair of tennis shoes or sandals.

Assuming that you are traveling in an automobile, stop at the Bass Pro Shop at the Pigeon Forge exit(exit 417) off of I-40. I-81 runs into I-40 about 12 miles before your exit. The guys in the fishing dept can direct you to areas to fish near your motel. They field these questions every day and are very helpful.............Al

Also I remember a thread of some guys who went to pigeon forge and fished for smallies in the river and creeks. Might be a nice option to wade a creek for smalliess. fun fishing and you get to keep cool.
