Guided Fly Fishing Trips on the WNC Fly Fishing Trail

Posted by on April 6, 2012

Caney Fork Brookie

Today I guided Jimmy T. and his father Jim T. from Ohio.  Jim had read a lot about the WNC Fly Fishing Trail, and decided to come down to Western North Carolina for some fly fishing.  Jim and Jimmy wanted to target some of the smaller, less crowded streams featured on the trail, so w e decided to drive up to Caney Fork and fish the smaller tributaries (Upper Caney Fork, Mull and Rough Butt).

Caney Fork Rainbow

Jimmy picked up a couple of nice rainbows about five minutes into the trip, and Jim came close to hooking up on a small brookie and also a decent rainbow that looked to be 8-9″.  As we worked up Upper Caney Fork, they ended up picking up close to a dozen rainbows and one little brookie.  Around 1:30, we decided to break for lunch, and then head on up to Rough Butt.  The first few holes on Rough Butt were fairly slow, and then Jim and Jimmy both started hooking into brookie after brookie.  The guys landed close to a dozen brookies and a couple more rainbows on this section.

Hot Flies of the day were a #14 Elk Hair Caddis with a #16 B.H. Pheasant Tail Dropper.  Most of the fish were taken on the Pheasant Tail and 6-7 were taken on the Caddis.

 

Overall great day on the water with some fantastic company.  I will be guiding Jim and Jimmy again tomorrow on another WNC Fly Fishing Trail stream.
