Guided Smallmouth Trips in Western North Carolina

Posted by on July 5, 2012

The past few days on the waters of Western North Carolina have been fantastic.  Earlier in the week Clint and I guided a group of six beginners on the Little Tennessee.  Most of the group was successful in landing several smallies.  Most fish were taken on a #4 Yellow Perch Clouser Minnow.

Wild Tuckasegee Brown Trout

Yesterday, I guided Frank and his son Jackson on a half day float on the upper Tuckasegee River.  They put several decent smallies and some rainbow and brown trout in the net.

Clint had a beginner trout trip on one of the smaller streams on the WNC Fly Fishing Trail.  I also had a small stream trip with repeat client James M. on Tuesday.  The day was a fairly slow with only a few strikes on #16 Red Just Add Water Nymphs.

Today, I guided Robert and Jeff on a full day float trip for smallies on the Dillsboro section of the Tuckasegee.  Jeff and Robert put plenty of smallies in the net including several 2+ pound fish.  There were also several bigger fish hooked including a 3-3.5 pound smallie taken on a white #4 Wiggle Minnow.  Despite the heat and clear sunny skies the bite was fairly consistent all day. Hot flies of the day were #4 Yellow Perch Clouser Minnows and #4 White Wiggle Minnows.  Looking forward to a busy day tomorrow.  Clint is booked for half day trips in the morning and afternoon and I will be floating again for smallies and trout on a 3/4 day trip on the Upper Tuckasegee.

If you are interested in booking a smallie wade or float trip with us please email or call.  We still have days available in July, August and September.  We are also targeting trout on the smaller streams of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the WNC Fly Fishing Trail.
