Guided Fly Fishing on the WNC Fly Fishing Trail

Posted by on April 7, 2012

Tanasee Creek

Today was another great day guiding clients on beautiful trout streams in Western North Carolina.  I spent today on the water with Jim and Jimmy T. from Ohio again.  We met at the fly shop at 8am and took a short drive up to Tanasee Creek.  The morning started off in the lower 30s but quickly warmed up to the low 60s.  However, the fishing never heated up on Tanasee Creek.  We worked about 1/2 to 3/4 of a mile stretch of water with little success.  We decided to break for lunch and drive back to Sylva to fish Scotts Creek – part of the WNC Fly Fishing Trail.

Happy Clients

On Scotts Creek, though, we quickly found success using a #14 Elk Hair Caddis with a #16 Just Add Water Dropper.  Jimmy picked up around a dozen wild rainbows, and Jim picked up a couple of nice trout as well. Jim also hooked the fish of the day, that almost made it into the net.  It is worth mentioning that the stream levels on both Tanasee and Scott Creek were higher than normal due to recent rainfall.

The past two days are perfect examples of why I love guiding clients on our beautiful Western North Carolina trout streams.  It’s hard to beat beautiful weather, awesome fly fishing and great company.

If you are interested in a guided trip on the fine streams of the WNC Fly Fishing Trail or any other stream in Western North Carolina please feel free to email or call us.  We are ready to guide you on your next fly fishing adventure.  Other notable areas we guide are the Nantahala, Tuckasegee, Little Tennessee, all streams in Cherokee including the fly fishing trophy section, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Davidson, West and East Forks of the Pigeon and many more.   hookersflyshop@yahoo.com or 828-587-HOOK
