Guided Trip on the West Fork of the Pigeon D.H.

Posted by on April 10, 2012

Sherri with a nice Rainbow

Today, I guided Chuck and Sherri on the Delayed Harvest section of the West Fork of the Pigeon.  This was Chuck and Sherri’s second time fly fishing, and they had a blast and caught plenty of trout.  On Sherri’s second cast she hooked the nice Rainbow pictured above.  She ended up bringing six or seven more fish to the net including some beautiful brookies.  Chuck also landed some nice brookies and one big rainbow.  Most fish were taken on a #8 Olive/Black Hot Head Marvin with a #16 Rainbow Warrior setup.

The Delayed Harvest on the West Fork of the Pigeon is about a 40-45 minute drive from our fly shop in Sylva, and 15-20 mins from Waynesville.  The river gets stocked in Oct., Nov., Mar., Apr., and May.  With each stocking, the state puts in close to 2000 trout in the two mile section of DH, which means by the May stocking there is close to 5000 trout per mile.  The upper section of the West Fork near the Blue Ridge Parkway is probably one of the most scenic streams in Western North Carolina and boasts a healthy population of wild brook trout.
