Fly Fishing Trips on the WNC Fly Fishing Trail

Posted by on June 21, 2012

Alford fishing in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park

It has been a week for us here at Hookers Fly Shop and Guide Service.  Clint and I have both been out on several trips this week on various sections of the WNC Fly Fishing Trail and surrounding areas.  On Sunday, I guided repeat client Alford A. from New Jersey on Straight Fork inside the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.  Alford  had some nice action on top water with several fish rising to a #14 Yellow PMX.

On Tuesday, Clint fished with a couple of beginner anglers from Sylva.  Clint reports that each client caught a handful of fish each on a section of upper Scott Creek .  I was also out exploring the WNC Fly Fishing Trail with Glen C. from the South Carolina Sportsman Magazine.  Glen was here to do a story on the WNC Fly Fishing Trail for the North Carolina Sportsman Magazine.  On the first day we spent some time on Raven Fork, Scott Creek, Tuckasesgee Delayed Harvest, Savannah Creek and the Tuckasegee below Dillsboro.   On day two we floated a section of the Tuckasegee below Dillsboro.  We caught some nice trout, red eye bass and smallmouth.  Pictured above is a nice smallie that Glen brought to the boat.  Clint was also out on a half day trip with a repeat client from earlier this spring.

Mull Creek Rainbow

Today, I guided repeat client Jeff B. from Sylva and his cousin Mike from Pennsylvania.  We fished on upper Caney Fork on Mull and Rough Butt Creeks.  Jeff and Mike caught some nice wild brookies and wild rainbows.  Jeff hooked into the big fish of the day on Rough Butt but we couldn’t get it into the net.  It looked like a 13-14″ Rainbow.  Hot flies of the day were #14 Yellow PMX with a #16 Copper John Dropper.

Jadon fighting a nice Tuckasegee Rainbow

On Tuesday I was also able to get out on the river with my son Jadon.  We floated a section of the upper Tuck just below WCU.  We had some decent success with a Hot Head Marvin with an Inchworm Dropper.  We caught some nice rainbows and one decent brown as well as a couple of smallies.

Looking forward to a busy day tomorrow with a morning and afternoon trips on the schedule.  If you are interested in booking with us please call or email.  828-587-HOOK   hookersflyshop@yahoo.com
