For more than a century family vacations in the mountains of America often included a trip to a trout farm. Join Charlie Ford at English Mountain Trout Farm just down the road a spell from Forbidden Caverns on the outskirts of Sevierville, Tennessee in the heart of the Great Smokey Mountains for the rest of the story.

Trout farms’ ponds were chock full of trout and they didn’t stand a chance with the temptation of the excited kids’ baited hooks.

The holiday pastime has dimmed in popularity but there are a few iconic places like English Mountain remain and do a thriving business with the kids and adults alike.
