Guided Fishing Trips in Western North Carolina

Posted by on September 4, 2013

Wow!  What a summer it has been here beautiful Western North Carolina.  We have had one of our busiest summers yet.  Our water levels have been great all spring and summer producing some of the best fishing we’ve seen in years.  Our guides have been guiding trips all over the  Western North Carolina Fly Fishing Trail, The Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Cheorkee and more, from high elevation native brook trout streams to larger stocked streams and even smallmouth bass streams.

Guided Fly Fishing in Cheorkee, NC

Many of the smaller streams on the Western North Carolina Fly Fishing Trail have produced some of our best days on the water all year.  Mull Creek, Rough Butt Creek, Beech Flats Creek, Caney Fork and Scotts Creek have provided some excellent angling opportunities and some very memorable trips.  The Trail provides areas to catch Brown, Rainbow,  and native Brook Trout for both the beginner and the experienced angler.  Pictured below is a young angler with her first trout on the fly.

The Great Smoky Mountains National Park has also been one of our best go to areas this summer as water levels have been higher and cooler than normal.  We have had some high number days as well as some very healthy fish brought to the net like the brown pictured below.  The Oconaluftee, Deep Creek, Hazel Creek, Straight Fork, Bradley Fork, Little River, and Kephart Prong are some of our favorite streams to guide and fish on.

Beautiful Smoky Mountain Brown Trout

Many anglers come to these mountains in search of trout but our area also offers some fantastic smallmouth and spotted bass fishing as well.  Take a float down the beautiful Tuckasegee River or a wade or float on the Little Tennessee.  Both rivers offer some of the best smallmouth action in the south.  Many of our smallie trips this season have been on lower sections of the Tuckasegee from Dillsboro to Bryson City.  While we do specialize in fly fishing for these hard fighting fish we do also offer spinning rod trips or you can do a little of both.  Below is a nice catch from one of our float trips this summer.
